Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry’s son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was baptised on Saturday (July 6) in a ceremony attended by Royal Family members and friends.
Archie was baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby who used water from the River Jordan and the silver Lily Font as is tradition for royal christenings.
The Lily Font has been an integral part of royal baptisms since being commissioned by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1840.
Archie wore a handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe – the original design now too fragile to be used was made in 1841 for the christening of Victoria.
Givenchy has commemorated many milestones for Meghan, but on this occasion she opted for Dior.
The white classic dress was very simple, yet fitting for the occasion.
Nude Dior pumps and an elegant hat completed her look, along with Cartier earrings.
Over the weekend I saw a lot of comments saying that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge pulls focus in this picture.
Considering most of the ladies opted for neutral tones, Catherine did stand out in her salmon-pink Stella McCartney dress (which she has worn before in a different fabric) along with a red Juliette Boterill pillbox hat, which at first I thought was a headband, and matching Gianvito Rossi pumps.
Accusations were made that Catherine never usually wears red pumps…well let me give you exhibit A.
It’s child’s christening and people are still using this event to pit each lady against each other?
