The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have finally given us a glimpse of what their son, Prince Archie looks like.
The occasion was his Royal Christening and the photos were shared on social media, one with his mother and father in a beautiful black and white picture and the second picture featured other members of the family including Archie’s grandparents, Prince Charles and Camilla, along with Doria Ragland and Princess Diana’s sisters Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah McCorquodale.
The event took place at Windsor Castle and Prince Archie was christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Announcing the joyous occasion, the official Instagram account of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wrote this caption:
This morning, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was christened in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle at an intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son. They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment.
Their Royal Highnesses feel fortunate to have enjoyed this day with family and the godparents of Archie.
Their son, Archie, was baptised wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown which has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years. The original Royal Christening Robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. It was subsequently worn for generations of Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren until 2004, when The Queen commissioned this handmade replica, in order for the fragile historic outfit to be preserved, and for the tradition to continue.
Isn’t he adorable?
