The intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, with no public or media in attendance. Approximately 25 people were expected to join the Sussex’s. Unfortunately, the Queen and Prince Phillip were unable to attend due to prior engagements.  The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have also kept the god parents of baby Archie private. 

A Family Affair

The pictures were taken in the Green Drawing Room and in the rose garden at Windsor Castle by photographer Chris Allerton. Two photos from the day were released. An adorable photo of the proud parents with their two-month-old son, and one larger family portrait, which features the Cambridges, Prince Charles and Camilla, and Meghan’s mother Doria, as well as two of Princess Diana’s siblings, Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah McCorquodale.

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.
