Ceremonia a fost oficiata de arhiepiscopul de Canterbury Justin Welby in capela privata a castelului, a precizat palatul Buckingham.
Harry si Meghan - cunoscuti oficial ca ducele si ducesa de Sussex - au difuzat ulterior pe Instagram doua fotografii oficiale ale evenimentului.
Intr-una din ele apar si tatal lui Harry, printul Charles, mama lui Meghan, Doria Ragland, precum si fratele mai mare al lui Harry, William, si sotia sa Kate. Au mai pozat matusile dinspre mama ale lui Harry si William, Sarah McCorquodale si Jane Fellowes, scrie Agerpres.
A doua fotografie, alb-negru, il arata pe Archie, care implineste sambata doua luni, in bratele parintilor sai, in Curtea cu trandafiri a castelului.
Palatul Buckingham nu a dezvaluit cine sunt nasii micutului, pe numele lui intreg Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
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 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. 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.
