Photos from the Christening of Archie Mountbatten-Windsor

Buckingham Palace has released two photographs from Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor's christening, which took place at the Private Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Photographer Chris Allerton said: "I am honoured to take the official photographs at the christening of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, and to once again, be part of such a special and joyous occasion for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex."

The celebration is thought to have been attended by fewer than 25 people. The Sunday Times has reported that Charlie van Straubenzee, a close friend of the Duke of Sussex, is one of Archie's godparents.

  1. Would love to know the history or story of the Christening Gown. Nice to see that Princess Diana is present (in Spirit) through her two sisters. Glynis, South Africa.

    1. Hi Glynis,

      Archie wore a handmade replica of the royal christening robe which was made for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, the Princess Royal (later Empress Friedrich). The robe, which has been worn by royal infants on the occasion of their christening for the last 11 years, was made by Angela Kelly, dressmaker to the Queen.
