Are Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Being Too Overprotective of Baby Archie?

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have yet to release a full photo of baby Archie's face — and the shroud of secrecy is expected to continue at his christening Saturday.

Only 25 guests have been invited to the private baptism at a chapel inside Windsor Castle, and cameras will not be allowed to record the arrival of the royal family.

But a personal photographer will be on hand during the event, and images are expected to be released afterward.

The secrecy of baby Archie has caused upset among some Brits amid news that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry reportedly spent $3 million of taxpayers' money to refurbish their cottage. Some Brits think the royal family owes it to them to show more of Archie.

The only photos released of 2-month-old Archie so far have been artsy shots. On Father's Day, the family released an image showing his face obscured by Harry's finger. On Mother's Day, they shared a photo on Instagram showing just Archie's feet.

But Meghan fans, known as the Sussex Squad, have been defending the royal couple.

"I think they’re being appropriately private. I’m sure there will be a time when we see the baby’s face," said Goldburn P. Maynard Jr. "I think they’re just trying to have some time with their baby privately, while they can."

In recent years, cameras have been welcomed at royal christenings. When George, Charlotte and Louis were christened, Prince William and Kate Middleton appeared to welcome public attention.

The palace has not confirmed who will be attending Saturday's event.
