Everything about the Royal Baby’s Christening
Following two months after the birth of the royal baby of Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the christening ceremony took place on Saturday, July 6th. According to reports, the royal baby’s christening took place in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle. It was an intimate service, officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.
Duchess Meghan Markle, chose to wear the earrings that she previously wore in her wedding ceremony last May.
The earrings were in a way a tribute by the duchess to the memories of when She and Prince Harry got married at the same chapel last year.
Archie wore the royal christening gown that has been in the royal family for a long time. The gown has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years.
The pictures of the royal baby’s christening ceremony were made public on the official Instagram account of The Dutch and The Duchess of Sussex.
@sussexroyal posted the pictures with the caption:
“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.”
The post also included the details of Master Archie’s christening gown.
Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter wore this gown originally. Subsequently, generations of Royal christenings wore the same gown. The tradition has been continuing.
Master Archie’s christening was photographed by Chris Allerton, who also photographed the royal couple at their wedding reception in May 2018.
