The Royal Christening of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex christened their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor today, Saturday 6 July.
There’s Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with their 2-month-old bouncing baby boy, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, who’s wearing the heirloom Honiton lace gown modeled on the original that Queen Victoria had made for her eldest daughter’s christening in 1841. There are grandparents Doria Ragland, Meghan’s mum, and Harry’s dad, Prince Charles, with Duchess Camilla. You’ve got Archie’s aunt and uncle, Kate Middleton and Prince William.
And in an unprecedentedly inclusive display of familial affection, indicative of Harry’s special relationship with his Spencer side, there are Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah McCorquodale, the elder sisters of Archie’s late grandmother, Princess Diana.
Archie’s christening on July 6 was a joyous occasion for the House of Windsor, and the public was treated to the first set of photos showing off Master Archie’s entire face and his childhood as his father’s mini-me has officially begun.
It starts with the proud new parents’ $3 million blind spot.
Harry and Meghan have been criticized in recent weeks for the cost of what was apparently an extensive renovation of Frogmore Cottage, their new 19th-century, four-bedroom-plus-nursery home located on the Frogmore Estate, part of the royal family’s Home Park in Windsor, that they moved into this past spring.
