The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge later shared the official picture from the christening on their kensingtonroyal Instagram account. The Duchess of Sussex wore a stunning white Dior gown, while The Duchess of Cambridge opted for a pink Stella McCartney dress and matching hairband for the christening.
In another touching nod to Princess Diana, Kate was also thought to be wearing the same Collingwood Pearl Earrings, that her mother-in-law wore to Prince Harry's Christening in In one picture shared on social media today, Meghan and Harry can be seen cuddling baby Archie in the grounds of Windsor Castle, with the rose garden in the background.
In the highly stylized black and white picture, the Duchess can be seen gazing at her husband while he looks down at their son.
The couple have been criticised for posting such images, with some suggesting fans could be left 'jaded' if they continue to release such pictures. Fashion photographer Chris Allerton, who shot the wedding photographs of Harry and Meghan, said he was 'honoured to take the official photographs at the christening' and to 'once again, be part of such a special and joyous occasion'. The service took place in a tiny chapel inside Windsor Castle, with many of the guests arriving discreetly by a back entrance to the grounds.
A handful of royals fans gathered in Windsor for the event yesterday and, though excited, some suggested they have been left 'disappointed' that the public will not get to see any of the private ceremony or find out who has been chosen as godparents.enter

Mystery surrounded the private event, with the royal couple refusing to allow media into the event, and using a royal loophole to avoid telling public who had been chosen as godparents. Several experts suggested it was a disappointing move, and would upset those who loved the couple the most. Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, suggested Prince Harry, 34, and Meghan Markle, 37, had 'really upset the people who loved them the most' with the move, telling the Daily Express they had 'misinterpreted the whole situation'.
Seward went on to reveal: 'The secrecy and evasiveness of the whole situation has been so mismanaged. It's a real shame.
Archie, who was born in May, wore the handmade replica of the royal christening robe, made by the Queen's dressmaker Angela Kelly, during the ceremony. The couple once again turned to fashion photographer Chris Allerton, who took their wedding photographs, to capture the moment. Mr Allerton was set to take the official christening photos in Windsor Castle's green drawing room and the pictures will be released later, Buckingham Palace said.
The date for Archie's christening had to be pushed back by two days, after his parents discovered that both the Queen and Prince Charles had prior engagements on the first date. While the Queen has bowed out graciously in order to spend a long planned weekend with Prince Philip in Sandringham, after a family conference it was decided that the date should be moved to accommodate Prince Charles.
He was away in Wales on the previously planned date to celebrate 50 years of him being Prince of the country. Although her majesty has not been able to attend all of her great-grandchildren's christenings, having missed Prince Louis's baptism last year, it is understood that she would have like to be present for Prince Harry's big celebration with his first child.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly shunned celebrities as godparents, instead turning to a close group of friends who played a key role at their wedding. It has emerged in recent days that the couple are using a royal loophole to ensure baby Archie's godparents remain a secret. Under Church of England rules, the details of all baptisms, including the baby's godparents, are a matter of public record and can be obtained easily for a small fee.

Royal sources have said that Meghan and Harry picked 'close and old friends' for the roles amid a backlash over the royal couple's refusal to identify them because they are 'private citizens'. Harry's touching tribute to his mother as Princess Diana's sisters stand alongside royal family in Archie's christening photos. Meghan and Harry have made a touching tribute to Princess Diana by including her sisters in the official royal christening photographs. Princess Diana's older sister Lady Jane Fellowes was one of the first to meet baby Archie, ahead of Prince Charles and Prince William , giving yet another indication of Harry's dedication to his mother's side of the family.
The royal couple have finally released photographs after the top secret christening today, although have still not revealed who the godparents of baby Archie are. Prince Harry has made clear that Diana has been on his mind since the birth of his son, and poignantly included her family in Archie's official birth announcement. Prince Harry has remained particularly close to Princess Diana's family since her death, and invited Lady Jane to give a reading at the royal wedding last May. And he made sure that Diana's sisters had met Meghan ahead of their engagement, with the Duchess of Sussex confirming how special they are to Harry in their engagement interview in November At the time, she mentioned how important she found meeting Harry's aunt, as well as Princess Diana's close friend Julia Fellowes.
Meghan said: 'I think in being able to meet his aunts, I'm able to, in some way, know a part of her through them and of course through him. And it's - it's incredibly special. And Prince Harry and Meghan have kept Princess Diana's family closely involved with the birth of their child. Photographer and former soldier Chris Allerton will capture shots of Archie's christening today, having previous taken private photographs for Meghan and Harry.

Allerton is said to have formed a close bond with the couple, having taken private pictures during Archie's photocall as well as the royal wedding. He is said to have developed his first roll of film at just eight years old and according to his website 'has been hooked on photography since'. One of the shots taken at Archie's photocall left looked extremely similar to the one the couple used on their official Christmas card right.
It was here that he learnt the skills needed to master professional photography.
After taking photos at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in May last year, Allerton posted his thanks to the couple. I am delighted that Their Highnesses chose this photograph for their Christmas card.
