Picture perfect. 

The world is royal obsessed, there’s no denying it. And ever since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle introduced everyone to little Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the royal obsession has grown. 

Honestly? Fair. Nothing like a cute baby to make your heart swell.

Well, prepare for some serious heart swelling today, friends, because the first official photos of Archie’s christening have been released and you better believe they're PERFECT. 

“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 Instagram caption read. 

“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.”

The first photo is a family portrait with the usual suspects: Meghan’s mom Doria Ragland, Will and Kate, and Charles and Camilla. 

Notably missing from the snap are Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip, who weren’t in attendance.

However, two other special guests feature in the photo: Princess Diana’s sisters, Lady Jane Fellowes, who is standing next to Doria, and Lady Sarah McCorquodale, who is standing next to William:

Of course Harry and Meghan found a way to honour the late princess, and it’s so beautiful. 

You know what else is beautiful? The second photo the couple shared from the special day (swipe right on the above to see). 

The intimate black and white portrait shows a special moment between Harry, Meghan and lil’ Archie and is just too damn cute. 

Archie’s christening is a little unusual for the royal family, as Harry and Meghan chose to keep the ceremony private and also decided not to release the name’s of Archie’s godparents. 

We totally respect their desire for privacy. Especially when they share such beautiful family photos to compensate.
