Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have chosen a different style of parenting for their son, Archie Harrison. The couple has decided to drop the “Prince” from his name and focus on making his lead a regular life.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are breaking away from the royal traditions with regard to baby Archie Harrison. For starters, they have decided to kiss goodbye to the “Prince” tag for Archie. The Duke and Duchess have also resorted to bring up baby Archie in a close and normal family-like environment, rather than the traditional royal family-like lifestyle. More so that the couple even chose to keep Archie’s christening a private affair. This decision has been received with a mixed reaction from royal fans. It has been reported that Queen Elizabeth II was okay with it.
However, Harry’s brother Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton are not very happy with Harry and Meghan’s decision. A source has told Us Weekly that the Queen “accepted Harry and Meghan’s decision to keep the event private.” But William and Kate “weren’t happy about it.” Christenings have been a public affair among the royals. The paparazzi was invited to capture Prince George, Princess Charlotte and more recently Prince Louis’ christenings.
However, Meghan and Harry decided to keep the paps away. The report further states that William is not pleased with Meghan and Harry’s parenting style. “William thinks his brother is going overboard keeping Archie out of the spotlight,” the source said, adding that the Duke of Cambridge “blames Meghan” for it. Regardless of their take on the situation, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were seen attending the Archie’s christening. They joined Prince Charles, Camilla, Princess Diana’s sisters and Meghan’s mother Doria at the event. The Queen couldn’t attend the event because she had prior engagements. Prince Philip hardly steps out since his retirement.
