The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be surrounded by a small group of family and close friends at the christening of their son, Archie Harrison, on Saturday. Although details of the special day remain private, including the names of the godparents, it seems Meghan will be joined by a few of her closest confidantes from overseas. Her best friend, Jessica Mulroney, has dropped a major hint that she is en route to the UK after sharing a post on Instagram, stating how much she will miss her children.

Meghan and Jessica go way back

"I won't be back with my family for a while so this ends the Instagram session of mum losing her [poop-emoji]," the Canadian stylist wrote in the caption on Thursday. Her followers immediately commented, asking whether she is flying to Windsor for Archie's christening. "I hope you're going where I think you might be going!! Love love love," said one fan, while another remarked: "Can't wait to see what you and Meghan have decided to wear for the day!!!" A third post read: "Have fun over the pond… enjoy."

Meghan and Harry's first child will be christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury, who has christened senior royals including Prince Charles and Prince William, as well as Prince George in 2013, Princess Charlotte in 2015 and Prince Louis in 2018. The Archbishop also christened and confirmed the Duchess of Sussex last year ahead of her marriage to Prince Harry.
