We’ve just been treated to the most adorable photo of baby Archie this weekend, and if you’ve been wondering when we might get another glimpse of those gorgeous big eyes, then you’ll be pleased to hear you won’t have to wait long.

According to Harper’s Bazaar, a new report by royal correspondent Roya Nikkah for the Sunday Times reveals we’re set to see Archie again in early July for his christening, just as he hits two-months-old.

And to make the event even more special, it’s been revealed the venue of choice will be none other than St George’s Chapel at Windsor, the very same place his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, tied the knot little over a year ago.

If that’s not touching enough, the special venue, which is handily located just a stone’s throw from the Sussex’s home Frogmore Cottage, St George’s Chapel also happens to be the same place Prince Harry was christened in 1984.

According to the new report the christening will be overseen by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the principle leader of the Church of England, and we can expect many members of the royal family to be in attendance including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla.

Roya adds that Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, is expected to fly over from Los Angeles, to be there for the special occasion too.

One royal family member not expected to be there however is Archie’s great grandmother the Queen.

But before people assume she’s snubbing little Archie, according to the report she simply has a prior engagement. In fact, she wasn’t present for Prince Louis’ christening last year either, which was around the same time as Archie’s is expected to be.

Just like his royal relatives before him, little Archie will wear the traditional Honiton lace replica christening gown. The original gown was worn by Queen Victoria’s first child, Princess Victoria in 1841, but since it’s almost a remarkable 180 years old, it’s no wonder a replica has been made.

The original gown, which was worn up until 2008, has seen the baptism of 62 royal babies, including five monarchs: the future Edward VII, George V, Edward VII, George VI and the Queen, as well as Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince Harry.

And of course, with the christening will be confirmation of who have been chosen as Archie’s godparents.

Earlier this year Hello! predicted Harry’s cousins Zara and Mark Tindall would be in the running along with some of Meghan’s close friends including her best friend Jessica Mulroney, tennis legend Serena Williams and George and Amal Clooney.

Well, we won’t have to wait long to find out! But for now, feast your eyes on this gorgeous pic of Archie!
