The Royal Family Christenings Photos over the Years: From Elizabeth to Archie
A British Royal Family christening is as iconic as any other moment we anticipate from the royal family. Seeing the new born royal baby in the traditional christening dress in the royal family christening picture is beautiful and unforgettable. In celebration of Harry and Meghan Markle's baby boy Archie's christening, we wanted to look back at the timeline of the British royal family christenings.
The christening is an important royal event where the royal family also reveal the babies godparents. However, Meghan and Harry, in true Meghan and Harry fashion, decided to make it a private event and not reveal a lot of private details. Meghan was glowing in the royal family christening portrait and she wore a simple all white outfit. Eyes were also on Kate Middleton's outfit in baby Archie's christening photos. She wore a salmon dress, red heels and a beautiful red headband. Moving forward we can only wish Meghan and Harry best of luck in the world of parenthood and now...take a look at the history of the British royal family christening photos.
