HARRY AND MEGHAN WERE OVER THE MOON

In the Royal portrait, Harry and Meghan can be seen sitting on a sofa on their own, holding their son quite happily, while the rest of their family gathered around them.

Camilla Parker-Bowles, the Duchess of Cornwall, sat at Harry's side, with her husband, Charles, the Prince of Wales, standing right behind her.

THE NOTICEABLE DISTANCE BETWEEN KATE AND MEGHAN

Much like Camilla, Kate also found herself a chair and sat next to Meghan on the opposite side, although at a considerable distance, with Prince William adopting almost the same pose as his father.

Looking joyful and proud, Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, posed alongside Prince Charles and Ladies Jane Fellowes and Sarah McCorquodale, Princess Diana's sisters.

THE QUEEN'S ABSENCE AND ARCHIE'S GOWN

As previously hinted, Queen Elizabeth did not attend baby Archie's Christening due to an engagement conflict in her schedule. Princes George and Louis, as well as their sister, Princess Charlotte, were not seen at the christening.

According to the post shared by Prince Harry and Meghan, their little boy was baptized wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown.

The gown has been worn by royal babies for the past eleven years and was created in order to preserve the original Royal Christening Robe, which was commissioned in 1841 by Queen Victoria.
