The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan is still on maternity leave, as she gave birth to baby Archie only two months ago, but that doesn’t mean we won’t get to see her very soon. Royal fans are expecting to see the former actress make an appearance at Wimbledon as this week her close friend Serena Williams is playing. This wouldn’t be unexpected as Kate Middleton, Meghan’s sister-in-law, has done the same when she was on maternity leave the previous years.
The Royals are known fans of tennis, and Kate is no exception, as she has always found the time to attend at least one of the matches. Last year Meghan joined Kate-who is the Patron of the All England Club – at the 2018 Ladies’ Final, where they watched Serena take on Angelique Kerber from Centre Court.
This year we will probably see Meghan step out to support her American friends Serena once more. If the seven-time Wimbledon champion goes through to the second round of the Ladies’ Singles, we might get to see the Duchess watch the game scheduled for Thursday.
Meghan also has a very important event coming up, her firstborn’s christening. The royal family will be gathering with Meghan and Harry at Windsor Castle for baby Archie’s christening. The ceremony will be an intimate gathering, having only around 25 people present and will take place in the private chapel inside Windsor Castle, most likely on Saturday.
The venue the couple picked was a small surprise, as some thought, they would go with St George’s Chapel, the place where the Duke and Duchess were married and where Harry himself was christened in 1984. There will be no media coverage of the event, but royal fans shouldn’t be disappointed as the two proud parents Meghan and Harry will release photos from the ceremony shortly after.
Another thing Meghan has planned, still being on maternity leave, is to join her husband Prince Harry at the premiere of The Lion King. The Palace has confirmed Prince Harry’s attendance, but Meghan is still uncertain. This is one of the most star-studded events this year, with stars such as Beyoncé, Sir Elton John, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Pharrell Williams, who has produced five songs for the soundtrack of the remake of the classic Disney movie, being in the guest list.
Meghan is excited about the event and would love to go and be by her husband’s side. The event is scheduled to take place in London’s Leicester Square on 14 July. Whether Meghan will be there will probably be confirmed just days before the event, as at the moment she goes day-by-day due to her two-month-old baby Archie, so there isn’t much room for fun.
Meghan has no official engagements planned thought and is expected to continue with her maternity leave, with it ending sometime in September. For example, when Kate was pregnant with Louis, the Duchess of Cambridge took time off from attending special events, even missing Trooping the Color and the service that celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force. When Meghan does return from maternity leave, she will immediately return to her royal work duties, and she has a royal tour to South Africa waiting for her this autumn.
