Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be christening baby Archie on Saturday in a private ceremony, but one royal family member will notably be missing. The Queen will not be at her great-grandson’s christening due to a previously scheduled trip to Sandringham. The absence shouldn’t be perceived as a slight, however. The Queen didn’t attend Prince Louis’s christening last year either, and it is understood among the family that she wishes she could attend.

The christening has already been rescheduled to accommodate one royal’s schedule. The event was originally set for Friday, but changed to the following day due to Prince Charles being in Wales that day.

However, some senior staff members are reportedly raising eyebrows at the scheduling of the christening, believing that they should have found a date that worked for the Queen.

“There is huge support for the couple in not wanting to conform to tradition. They are young, they are striking out on a different path from other members of the Royal Family and there is enormous goodwill for them,” a source told the Daily Mail. “But they shouldn’t do that without regard for tradition. Her Majesty was already scheduled to be in Scotland for her annual Holyrood Week and had a prior engagement at the weekend. There is a feeling amongst some that they should have been more accommodating about the date.”

But alas, the show must go on. The ceremony on Saturday will be private, but Buckingham Palace has confirmed that photos will be released once it’s over, so the public won’t be left completely out of the loop.
