Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, have been visiting Jordan and Egypt on their latest royal tour.
The couple was photographed alongside King Abdullah II and Queen Rania at the Al Husseiniya Palace in Jordan earlier this week before they visited a site of religious significance.
The Director-General of the historic site, Rustom Mkhjian confirmed that the water given to the prince would be used for “Future baptisms”.
Over the last year, four new royal babies have been born and are still yet to be Christened.Princess Eugenie welcomed her first son August Philip Hawke Brooksbank on February 9.
Zara Tindall then gave birth to her third child Lucas Philip Tindall on March 21.The next royal baby was Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor who came into the world on June 4 and finally Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi was born to Princess Beatrice on September 18.
All of these new royals are expected to be Christened using water from the River Jordan as has been done for several other royals.
Water from the site is used as it is an area that was “blessed from the spot where Jesus was baptised”, according to Rustom Mkhjian.
Their return would also mark the first time that Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis would get to meet their young cousin, as well as a long-awaited reunion with Lili’s big brother Archie.
