People are annoyed that Meghan and Harry are keeping baby Archie's Christening so private

Because of course they are.

Meghan and Harry are planning on having their newborn baby, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, Christened this weekend.

The event will be a low-key one, shrouded in mystery, as the pair have opted to keep the Christening as private as they can, without the glitz and glam of paps on every corner and needing to wear high heels when you really don't want to.

Unlike royal Christenings before, Archie's will not take place in St George's Chapel, but in the Queen's Private Chapel.

There'll also only be about 25 or so guests attending, and that doesn't include the Queen or Prince Philip.


And although one could argue that Meghan and Harry have the right to keep their newborn child as private or public as they please, other people have differing opinions.

Opinions which were, of course, hashed out on today's Good Morning Britain via this tweet.

Amidst the reams of painful comments were some of the following:

"I think it is completely wrong of them to want us to fund them but keep away from the public light! They should fund there own home and that money can go to the NHS."

"Their baby's christening that's up to them. They want to break away from royal protocol that's their decision."

"It's going to backfire on Harry I feel if he doesn't want to be royal and wants an ordinary life that's fine step down for all royal privileges get a job and fund your family out of your millions not taxpayers money."

"They can do what they like so long as they pay for it themselves."

Etc, etc, etc.

This comes after it was reported that the couple had spent a good bit of tax payer's money on renovations for their new home, Frogmore Cottage.

According to the accounts for the Sovereign Grant, which funds the Queen and her household’s expenses, around £2.4 million (€2.7m) was spent "doing up" the cottage to make five buildings into one.

"The property had not been the subject of work for some years and had already been earmarked for renovation in line with our responsibility to maintain the condition of the occupied royal palaces estate," said Sir Michael Stevens, Keeper of the Privy Purse, according to Metro.

"The Sovereign Grant covered the work undertaken to turn the building into the official residence and home of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their new family.

"The building was returned to a single residence and outdated infrastructure was replaced to guarantee the long-term future of the property. Substantially all fixtures and fittings were paid for by Their Royal Highnesses."

Seems like a bit of a stretch to demand photos of a baby just because a few people have done up their gaff.

But hey, what do we know?

It's not our hard earned taxes that are being spent.
