Archie Harrison Christening Photos: Royally Adorable!
For Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, it’s official.
And also so gosh darn precious.
On Saturday morning, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle gathered their loved ones at Windsor Castle for a special religious event about two months in the making.
We’re talking, of course, about the Christening of Royal son Archie, who was at the center of a blessed event that brought together friends, family members and even rumored foes.
Among the most notable attendees?
Doria Ragland, Markle’s mother, as well as Prince William and Kate Middleton, Markle’s supposed blood rivals.
As seen in a family portrait shared on Harry and Meghan’s Instagram account (above), Prince Charles and wife Camila, Duchess of Cornwall were also there… along with Princess Diana’s sisters Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes.
What an amazing image, right?
And the same can be said for the one of Meghan and Harry down below:
“This is a beautiful milestone and they are excited to share it as a family first and then with the world,” said a People Magazine source of Harry and Markle, who wore a white Dior dress to her son’s christening.
As for the official caption affiliated with these brand new family pictures?
This is what the Palace wrote of the Christening online:
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.
Archie came into the world on May 6.
Two days later, he made his public debut when his famous parents strolled out in front of a select number of journalists and posed for a few gorgeous photographs.
Since this time, Markle has remained on maternity leave and the couple has mostly kept themselves and their son far away from the spotlight
… much to the irritation of some British citizens.
Meghan and Harry’s desire for this privacy has been met with a great deal of criticism from those whose tax money helps fund their home and lifestyle.
The Duchess and Duke of Sussex have offered just a scant few glimpses of their son since his birth in May — and the public has yet to see his full face.
The former actress and her red-headed soulmate also continue to break from recent royal tradition, in this case NOT publicly announcing the names of their son’s godparents around the time of his Christening.
Moreover, Markle and Harry will soon whisk Archie off to Africa.
But, hey, at least we’ll always have the snapshots above, right?
