This afternoon, it will be the first time we see Meghan at a family christening.
Prince Louis’ christening will be held this afternoon in St. James’s palace, but his great-grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Philip of Edinburgh, will not be among the attendees.
A surprise for all, no doubt, since the monarch was present at the baptism of Prince George and Charlotte. On the other hand, since the prince announced his retirement, he has reduced his official commitments and now enjoys a deserved rest away from London.
All in all, the queen continues to fulfill her busy schedule, although a few weeks ago she was absent from an event held in the Cathedral of San Pablo, where Angelina Jolie did attend, due to the flu. Today, the monarch has returned today from her country house in Sandringham, where she has spent a few days replenishing forces, to face a week full of official commitments.
This Tuesday, he will be present at the centenary of the RAF – Royal British Air Force – and next Friday he will receive Donald Trump in Windsor. In addition, on a day like today of the last century, on July 9, 1947, the queen – then, Princess Isabel – announced her engagement to Felipe Mountbatten with a photo shoot in Buckingham. And another coincidence: the photographer of the christening of Prince Louis, Matt Holyoak, will be the same one who photographed the monarch on his 70th wedding anniversary.
In any case, those who will be will be her uncles: Meghan Markle , in her first real baptism, and her husband, Prince Harry , who has bought him the first edition of Winnie the Pooh – very important for him, since it was the book that was read to him by his mother, Diana de Gales – valued at 9,000 euros .
There will also be Pippa Middleton and her husband, James Matthews, the other members of the family of the Dukes of Cambridge and the six godparents of the baby, all close friends of the happy parents. The ceremony, which will last 40 minutes, will be followed by a photo session at Clarence House and there, illustrious guests, will enjoy the famous tea at five accompanied by a piece of cake.
