Royal Baby Archie Christening’s Pictures Have Been Released

Valeria Servigna | July 7th, 2019

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s first royal baby, was baptized last Saturday. The official pictures have been recently released on the couple’s Instagram page. The couple’s first child was born on May 6, 2019, and, he was baptized in a private ceremony at Windsor Castle.

The Ceremony took place on July 6th with members of the Royal family and Duchess Meghan’s mother attending. One of the pictures features the family gathered in Windsor’s Castle Green Drawing Room. This one shows Prince William and Duchess Kate, Prince Charles with the Duchess of Cornwall, Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, and Princess Diana’s sisters, Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah McCorquodal. A second black and white picture has Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry in Windsors Castle’s Rose Garden closely holding baby Archie. The photos were taken by Chris Allerton, who also took some of the couple’s wedding pictures.

The couple’s Instagram post states “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 firstborn and celebrating this special moment.” For the ceremony, Archie wore a handmade replica of the royal christening gown as the original is too fragile to be worn. The initial gown was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841, and it was used in royal christenings for generations until 2004. Queen Elizabeth II had the replica made in order to preserve the other one and continue the tradition.

The Royal baby was presented to the world two days after his birth, on May 8th, 2019. The christening photos are the first ones to fully show baby Archie after his public debut. Although Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have manifested their desire for extra privacy, the pictures were released moments after the ceremony.
