As expected, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor — the son of Prince Harry and Duchess Megan — was christened on July 6 at a super-private ceremony at Windsor Castle with close family and friends in attendance. One name not on the list was the Duchess' estranged father, Thomas Markle.
Markle has continued to give tell-all interviews to the British tabloids, wondering why he has been excluded from family events (his long list of bad behavior — and habit of giving interviews about his famous daughter — are probably why).
Markle was a bit more restrained in his newest chat with Daily Mail, which he conducted from his home in Rosarito Beach, Mexico.
"I was an altar boy at age 12, a confirmed member of the Queen's church at age 14, and Archie is my new grandson, so of course I would have enjoyed being there for the blessing, wishing Archie and his parents health and happiness," he told the publication.
The official family photo at the christening features Archie, Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan, her mother, Doria Ragland, Prince William, Duchess Kate, Prince Charles, Camilla Bowles Parker (Duchess of Cornwall), and aunts Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah McCorquodale, who are Harry's late mother Princess Diana's sisters.
Congratulations to the royal parents!
