Prince Harry and Meghan’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, has been christened in a small private ceremony at Windsor Castle, England.

The ceremony was conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby in the castle’s Private Chapel, Buckingham Palace said.

In accordance with royal tradition, the Lily Font and water from the River Jordan were used during the christening, and Archie, who was born on May 6, wore the handmade replica of the royal christening robe.

On their official Instagram page, Harry and Meghan, known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, shared two official photographs of the occasion taken in the Green Drawing Room and the Rose Garden at Windsor Castle.

One family portrait included Harry’s father, Prince Charles, Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland as well as Harry’s older brother Prince William and his wife, Kate. Harry and William’s maternal aunts, Sarah McCorquodale and Jane Fellowes, also posed for the picture.

A second black and white photograph showed Archie in his parents’ arms in the Rose Garden.

However, Buckingham Palace has not disclosed who Archie’s godparents are.

Harry and Meghan married at Windsor Castle, west of London, last year. Archie is seventh-in-line to the British throne.
