Mummy Meghan (in Dior) and dad Harry support the young Archie, on the day of his baptism celebrated at Windsor castle, in an event held strictly private, the latter having disappointed fans.

There are now, however, the images, spread once again through the social accounts of the royals: a portrait of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor – born last 6 May – who sleeps peacefully in the arms of his parents, in the rose garden at Windsor.

And the ‘family photo’, taken after the ceremony in the castle’s Green Drawing Room. Around Meghan with Archie in her arms, and Harry, there are the grandparents of the royal baby: Charles and Camilla together with Doria Ragland, Meghan’s mother. There are William and Kate (in Stella McCartney). But there is no is Queen Elizabeth, engaged in another previously scheduled event.

The images are the work of photographer Chris Allerton, who also immortalized Harry and Meghan’s marriage in May 2018.
