Official Portraits from Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor’s Christening

Two months after his birth, The Duke & Duchess of Sussex held the christening of their son, Archie Harrison, in the Private Chappel of Windsor Castle. Following the service, the couple and their family took portraits in the Green Drawing Room (he same one where they had their wedding pictures taken). Among the guests are: The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Ms Doria Ragland (Meghan’s mother), Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes. Unfortunately, Queen Elizabeth and The Duke of Edinburgh were unable to attend, do to prior commitments.

@SussexRoyal – 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.
