Meghan and Harry are leaving taxpayers 'jaded' with 'stylized and arty' pictures of baby Archie: Royal expert
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have left their fans and followers feeling a 'bit jaded' as they have been sharing very 'stylized and arty' pictures of their recently born son Archie.
It all started with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex breaking the tradition of posing with the royal newborn on the front steps of the hospital. However, the couple have since been sharing very arty pictures of their son on their social media.
According to Ingrid Seward, the editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, royal fans are now getting fed up with these pictures and it will not be received well if the pair chooses to do the same with his christening pictures.
Harry and Meghan are reportedly planning a private celebration for their son. The ceremony is due to take place on Saturday, exactly two months after Archie was born on May 6, and will be held at the private chapel at Windsor Castle.
They are hoping to raise him as a "private citizen".
Normally, christenings are not televised, but the press is usually invited to come and take pictures of the family and guests arriving and leaving the church.
Ingrid Seward spoke to DailyMail and shared, "I think what people want and what people are used to seeing are lovely family images of the baby in the royal Honiton lace christening gown. They won't want an arty Instagram shot of Archie's foot three days later, if it's left up to the couple themselves to take pictures and release them."
"The pictures they issue are so stylized. People just want to see Harry, Meghan, the baby, and the gown and the godparents, that's all. It's traditional. But there's nothing wrong with a bit of traditional when it comes to a royal baby," Seward continued.
The royal expert is of the opinion that it is Harry's idea to keep the details private and on the down low and claims that it is putting Meghan Markle in a very difficult position.
"I think this is quite Harry-led and it is putting Meghan in a very difficult position. She's the one getting all the flak as a newcomer to the Royal Family. I assume Harry and Meghan don't know where they are going wrong and think the criticism is all so very unfair."
The reports of the christening follow the details of the £2.4million price tag attached to the renovation of the couple's Windsor home at Frogmore Cottage being made public.
The Queen will reportedly not be attending the christening given all her other engagements.
