Meghan caused chaos for Archbishop of Canterbury with christening move


MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry’s choice of date for Archie’s christening caused a major upset for the Archbishop of Canterbury who was forced to leave the Church of England’s most important gathering.

The reverend’s sudden departure from the four-day event in York in July 2019 left his fellow attendees puzzled.

It was only after photos of the christening emerged that they found out the reason for his absence.

Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, had their two-month-old baby christened at the private chapel in Windsor Castle in a ceremony sheilded from the public eye.

Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland jetted into the UK to watch her grandson be officially welcomed into the church family, and Harry’s maternal aunts were also invted to the celebration.

The Sussexes had originally planned to hold the christening on Friday July 5 2019 but moved it to the next day when they found out the Queen and Prince Charles could not attend due to prior commitments.

But despite the change in date, the monarch was still not free to attend.

A well-placed source told MailOnline the sudden change in the Archbishop’s diary raised eyebrows.

They said: “The Sussexes certainly didn’t consult others as to what date might suit best… that just wasn’t a consideration.”
