Endnotes: Outrage With Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Keeping Archie’s Christening Private ANd MORE
Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Sussex have only been parents for a matter of months but they’re already being accused of being over-protective.
Criticism over the pair’s decision to keep baby Archie out of the spotlight has been mounting for months.
And recent revelations — that British taxpayers footed a £2.4 million (about $3 million) bill for home renovation, and plans to keep his christening private — have done little to silence critics.
It’s worth noting that royal baptisms have traditionally been private affairs. However in recent years cameras have been allowed to capture the arrivals of the family and their guests.
That was certainly the case for all three Cambridge children — George, Charlotte and Louis — although they are higher in the line of succession.
This Saturday, Harry and Meghan have arranged a completely private ceremony for Archie led by the Archbishop of Canterbury at a chapel inside Windsor Castle.
The palace won’t officially confirm who’s attending, though a royal source told CNN that fewer than 25 family and friends are invited. And while the media is excluded, pictures taken by their personal photographer, Chris Allerton, will be released after the service.

Gwyneth Paltrow is truly spectacular. Thanks to Goop she’s going to live forever and has spoken to the gods and the stars and opened her third, fourth, fifth and sixth eyes–she’s truly legendary both in physical and mental fitness and extreme wealth.
So it’s strange, it seems, that her memory seems to not be the sharpest.
Or maybe it’s just she’s SO FULL of wisdom that she has to keep her mind open for important facts like: “creativity with your hands is like channeling God,” and not the names of people she’s met and worked with in the past.
That has to be the case, because it seems that Gwyneth has forgotten her Avengers: Endgame co-star and fellow Marvel person, Sebastian Stan, not for the first time, or the second–she’s forgotten him a third time.
