Sarah Ferguson recently sparked rumors that she attended Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son’s christening.
In an unearthed photo uploaded by Express, the Duchess of York appears to be standing inside a chapel. She is dressed in black long-sleeved attire and a black and purple headband. The mom of two is also holding a card that looks like a christening pamphlet.
Until today, the names of those that attended Prince Harry’s son’s christening haven’t been revealed. Days before Archie’s baptism, it was announced that the event will be kept private. The palace also said that the names of his godparents will not be revealed, but approximately 25 people are expected to attend.
One day after Archie’s christening, an official photo was released, and it features Prince Harry, Markle, Prince Charles, Camilla Parker Bowles, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Lady Jane Fellowes, and Lady Sarah McCorquodale.
This means that other than the eight immediate relatives, there were 17 other guests that were not photographed at Archie’s christening. But if Ferguson was recently invited, this shouldn’t come as a surprise to royal fans.
The Duchess of York also attended Prince Harry and Markle’s royal Wedding at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle last year. However, Ferguson was not invited to Prince William and Middleton’s wedding.
During her interview with Piers Morgan on “Good Morning Britain,” Ferguson revealed that Queen Elizabeth II gave Prince Harry and Markle the go signal to invite Ferguson to their nuptials.
“I just think that Her Majesty is an incredible lady. What an icon to the country, and one of the finest people I’ve ever met… She leads by such example and to include me in this wonderful gesture… Her Majesty knew me from a little naughty age 10… I can’t thank Her Majesty enough for being so steadfast to me,” she said.
By the looks of it, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex also received a go signal for the Queen to invite Ferguson to their son’s christening.
