A royal occasion.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry celebrated the christening of their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor in Private Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, with Prince William and Kate Middlton among the attendees as well as Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland.

Unlike the Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge who allowed some media to document the christening’s of their children, Harry and Meghan continue to keep their parenting journey as private as possible and have only shared two images from the day so far, and have not revealed who the godparents are.

One is a portrait of the royal family, and another of them both lovingly holding their young son. Meghan chose a Dior cream gown and matching hat, while Kate wore a pink Stella McCartney dress with a red headband.

Archie, was baptised wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown which has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years.

According to the social media post: “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.”

The Queen and Prince Philip missed the ceremony due to prior commitments.
