The water was taken from the site in Jordan where, it is believed, Jesus was baptized by John.
During their tour of Jordan, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla were given 72 bottles of water taken from the River Jordan to be used for baptizing royal babies, reported the Daily Mirror.
It’s a long-standing tradition in the Royal Family to baptize babies with water taken from the site where John the Baptist was said to have baptized Jesus.
A tradition of royal christenings
According to the report, Prince Harry and Meghan’s son Archie was the last member of the royal family to be baptized with holy water from the Jordan. The Jordanian royal court usually sends the Queen and her family bottles of water for that purpose, but since Prince Charles and Camilla happened to be there on a personal pilgrimage, they arranged to bring the holy water home themselves.
