Meghan and Harry's Baby Archie Becomes a Christian in Private Christening

Share

Baby Archie was christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury in a private ceremony in Windsor on Saturday and two official pictures of the day were shared with fans on Instagram.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to share the happiness of this day, and would like to thank everyone around the world for their ongoing support", the caption read.

There were also subtle tributes to Harry and William's late mother Princess Diana, as they were joined in their portrait by her sisters Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah McCorquodale.

The littlest royal, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, was christened in a private family ceremony at Windsor Castle overnight.

Unlike the Cambridges, who allowed press to cover the comings and goings during the ceremony, Harry and Meghan waited to release photos and now we finally have them. The new images came nearly two months after the world caught its first glimpse of the seventh-in-line to the throne during a photocall on May 8.

Seward says that she finds it "a bit odd" that Meghan would want to alter her original yellow gold band on her engagement ring because Prince Harry specifically designed it for her before his proposal.

The 19-year-old RnB singer has been tapped to play Ariel in Disney's next live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid . Soon after the pair signed a contract with Parkwood Entertainment and has opened for Beyoncé on her " Lemonade " tour.

The charity was allegedly split up, now becoming the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, because the two women didn't really see eye-to-eye on how to handle the day-to-day operations of it. This poor royal woman is in a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation, and we wish sometimes people would just calm down.

This would be fine had Harry and Meghan not just claimed $3 million of British taxpayers' cash to fund their new home, Frogmore Cottage. In 2008, Queen Elizabeth deemed the gown too fragile to continue wearing, and so she called upon her dressmaker, Angela Kelly, to make a replica of the gown.

He was not invited to the christening or last year's Royal Wedding after an almighty bust-up with his daughter when he admitted posing for paparazzi photos.

Therefore, Saturday's photos caused frenzy online as royal watchers finally got to see some clear images of little Archie. (There is a whole thing where they give her the key to the city and then she hands it back.) While it all sounds a wee bit tedious, this is all a big deal for the Queen.

"Ultimately this is a private christening for a citizen who will remain private until he is in a position to choose for himself", royal correspondent Omid Scobie told The Independent about his thoughts on the matter.
