Meghan and Harry have released official photos of their son’s christening.

Baby Archie’s face was revealed in its entirety during his royal christening. And boy oh boy, is he one gorgeous little guy.

We couldn’t love Meghan and Harry more. From changing the way the world views the royal family, to presenting themselves as everyday parents, they have managed to bring this home yet once again, by choosing to exclude the press from little Archie’s christening and opting to rather have a private photographer capture these very special moments.

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.

The christening gown worn by Archie was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841, was worn by Queen Elizabeth herself, all of her children, and all of her grandchildren. A replica was made in 2004 and has been worn by Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis as well.

One can’t deny when looking at these pictures that Meghan and Harry are just head-over-heels in love with each other and have settled well into life as parents.
