Proud parents the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have finally given a glimpse into Archie’s top secret christening today as they revealed photographs on Instagram.
The royal couple shared the snap from the event with their near 9 million followers, posting they felt ‘so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public’ and thanking supporters for their kindness.
Meghan, 37, and Prince Harry, 34, posed for photographs alongside the Duchess of Cornwall, The Prince of Wales, Ms Doria Ragland, Lady Jane Fellowes, Lady Sarah McCorquodale, The Duke of Cambridge and The Duchess of Cambridge in the Green Drawing Room at Windsor Castle.
In a touching tribute to Harry’s mother, Princess Diana’s sisters Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah McCorquodale were at the forefont of the official picture.
Just 25 guests were present at the baptism today, which saw Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor christened in a private event inside Windsor Castle, but the couple only released photographs celebrating with their immediate family.
The royal couple have faced growing backlash surrounding the event, as they insisted it be kept private, despite recently billing the public £2.4million to renovate Frogmore cottage.
Sharing the snaps with their near 9 million followers on Instagram, the happy couple wrote that they’d loved celebrating the day with the godparents of Archie – despite refusing to name them.
Alongside the two pictures from the event, which only featured close family members, they wrote: ‘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.
