Saturday, July 6 is an incredibly monumental day for the British royal family. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son, two-month-old Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, was officially christened. And if you haven’t been staying up-to-date on what’s happening with the young Prince, check out these photos of Meghan and Harry at Archie’s christening. They really show off the proud parents.
While the royal family tends to value longtime traditions, it seems as though Harry and Meghan are breaking away from the norm. The royal baptism is usually a very public affair. However, Markle and Harry decided keep Archie’s baptism totally private. That means they chose not to live stream it, they didn’t allow for fan gatherings in the general area, and they prevented any photographers from taking any candid photos. So as you’d imagine, I’ve been eagerly waiting for updates.
According to Mirror.co.uk, the baptism took place at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, which is the same location where Markle and Harry got married, as well as where Prince Harry was christened 35 years ago. It was a very intimate service (about 25 guests) and it was officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. And even though the affair was kept under wraps, the royal family posted the below photos to the official Sussex Instagram account below. Everyone looks so excited.
The first picture, taken by Chris Allerton in Windsor Castle’s Green Drawing Room features Harry, Meghan and Archie sitting on a couch, surrounded by Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Phillip, The Prince of Wales, Ms. Doria Ragland, Lady Sarah McCorquodale, Lady Jane Fellowes, Prince William, and Kate Middleton. Kensington Palace also posted the same photo to its official Instagram account.
The second photo is a black and white pic of Harry, Meghan and Archie. Understandably, everyone looks so happy.
According to the caption of the Instagram post, the outfit Archie wore during the ceremony carried important history. It replicated the royal christening gown that has been worn by royal babies for many years. Read up on the importance of Archie’s ensemble, below.
The caption also mentioned they celebrated with the godparents of Archie, which has not been announced yet. Elite Daily reached out to the royal family to inquire for comment on the matter but did not hear back in time of publication.
