The reason why Queen Elizabeth won't be at Archie's christening next month

The Instagram post was captioned, simply: "Happy Father's Day!".

For Archie's baptism, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are still expecting other family members to attend the special occasion, including Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall as well as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

And they love sharing it with the world. As we all know now, Prince Harry ignored his grandfather's advice and went on to marry Meghan. Hopefully, Meghan has won him over by now with her warmth and charm - and while it's a shame that everyone in Harry's life has taken so much convincing, it's a true testament to Meghan's fortitude how beloved she seems by those close to him now. But that looks to be changing soon enough. What we do know is the venue, and it's pretty flawless: St George's Chapel. Insiders previously told The Sun that various royals voiced concerns but that "Harry stood up for Meghan very forcibly".

According to The Mirror, the Queen has invited Meghan, as well as Prince Harry and baby Archie, to join her at Balmoral Estate in Scotland.

The ceremonies are likely to be conducted by the Dean of Windsor, the Reverend David Conner, the Sunday Times reported, as well as the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.

Archbishop Welby baptised and confirmed Meghan, who was raised a Protestant, into the Anglican faith two months before her wedding.

Earlier it was reported that Prince William had been anxious about the speed of his brother's romance.

It's not the first time the Queen has been forced to miss one of her great-grandson's christenings, as in July 2018 the Monarch and her husband, Prince Philip, were nowhere to be seen when Prince Louis was being christened.

Speculation is also circulating as to who might be on the guest list. For now, we can only speculate.
