Prince Harry and Megan Markle christened son

On July 6, the son of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, was christened in a private chapel at Windsor castle in a closed service. It was conducted by Archbishop Justin Welby of Canterbury. Photos of the day Harry and Megan showed in the official Instagram account of the family.

Archie was christened in an exact copy of the Royal dress for christening. The original Royal baptismal garments, made of fine lace and white satin, were commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. This dress was subsequently worn to Royal christening by several generations of children, including Queen Elizabeth, her children, and her grandchildren until 2004 — when Elizabeth commissioned a hand-made copy to preserve the fragile historical attire and continue the tradition.
