Archie was dressed in the same christening gown worn by Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince George at their christenings.

The gown is a replica of the royal christening robe commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841. The original robe was worn by generations of royal babies, and the replica was commissioned by Queen Elizabeth II in 2004, in order for the "fragile historic outfit to be preserved."

Archie is thought to have been christened using water from the River Jordan, where it is said Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist.

Unlike other royal christening ceremonies, where the family have invited several photographers and members of the public to take pictures of the royal family arriving and leaving the ceremony, Harry and Markle had just one photographer, Chris Allerton.

Allerton, who took the couple's official wedding photos - also in the grounds of Windsor Castle - said he was "honoured" to be chosen by the couple once again.

"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," he said in a statement.
