The royal’s Instagram account shared beautiful photos of the the even along with a lengthy caption about the day.

“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 caption read.

“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.”

The caption continued, “Their son, Archie, was baptised wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown which has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years. The original Royal Christening Robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. It was subsequently worn for generations of Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren until 2004, when The Queen commissioned this handmade replica, in order for the fragile historic outfit to be preserved, and for the tradition to continue.”

As Harry and Meghan introduced their baby to the world, two days after his birth, Meghan shared some words to describe her newborn son.

“It’s magic. It’s pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world, so I’m really happy,” Meghan said. “He has the sweetest temperament. He’s really calm and he’s just been a dream. So it’s been a special couple of days.”

Congratulations to the royal family.
