Meghan and Harry release Archie baptism photos
The children's son of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex was baptized in Windsor on Saturday, exactly two months after Archie was born on May 6. Pictures taken after the private ceremony were released hours later.
Snapshot was taken by fashion photographer Chris Allerton in the Green Drawing Room in Windsor, same room where Harry and Meghan took some of their wedding photos this year.
One of the pictures shows Archie with his parents, his grandfather Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Meghan's mother Doria Ragland and two sisters of Princess Diana, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes.
Another black and white image depicted just Archie, Meghan and Harry in the Rose Garden at the castle.
Harry and Meghan were criticized by some for keeping Archie out of focus, especially after UK taxpayers recently incurred a $ 2.4 million (about $ 3 million) bill for their return.
Although the monarchs have been private, cameras have been allowed to capture the arrivals of the family and their guests when the three children of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge ̵
1; Georg e, Charlotte and Louis – were baptized.
] The baptism was held at a private chapel in Windsor Castle. The intimate service was officially appointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.
Harry was baptized at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle in 1984 and he and Meghan were there in May 2018.
Few guests were invited to witness the baptism, according to Buckingham Palace. Among them were the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, as well as Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The Queen skipped the event due to a prior involvement under the Palace.
Seventh in line with the throne, Archie Harrison does not immediately qualify for the title of Prince, and Sussexes has chosen not to use any title for everyone for their son.
While Archie will have the right to use his father's second peerage title, Earl of Dumbarton – his parents have indicated that they will not use it for him.
But when Prince Charles becomes king, Princess Harry's son will automatically become his royal highness Prince Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
