Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the two-month-old son of Duke and Duchess of Sussex, was christened on Saturday.

The ceremony was carried out in a small private ceremony by Prince Harry and his wife Meghan with close family and friends.

As per reports, Archie, who was born on May 6, wore the handmade replica of the royal christening robe which was made for Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter.

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

A Royal Communications spokesperson said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to share the happiness of this day, and would like to thank everyone around the world for their ongoing support.”

“They feel so fortunate to have enjoyed this special moment with family and Archie’s godparents”, the spokesperson added.

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh did not attend the christening due to a prior engagement.

Duke and Duchess, however, did follow some royal traditions. The Lily Font and water from the River Jordan were used during the ceremony, following the royal tradition.

For the ceremony, no press and photographers were invited that invited a lot of criticism. Media and the public were also excluded from seeing guests arriving and leaving.

A fashion photographer captured the private ceremony and two photos were shared on the official Instagram page.
