Hyllet Diana i dåpen

Prins Harry og Meghan Markle hyllet Diana i dåpen til lille Archie.

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor ble døpt i går og hvis man ser nøye på ett av bildene Sussex Royal har offentliggjort, ser man en rørende hyllest til prinsesse Diana.

Prins Harry og Meghan Markle trosset tradisjonene og valgte å ha en liten, privat dåp med kun nærmeste familie.

Hyllest til Diana

På det offisielle dåpsbildet ser vi Meghan og Harry med lille Archie. Bak dem står Harrys far, prins Charles og kona, Camilla Parker Bowles, Meghans mor, Doria Ragland, prins William, Kate Middleton og to kvinner vi ikke gjenkjente ved første øyekast.

Men det er altså prinsesse Dianas søstre Lady Jane Fellowes og Lady Sarah McCorquodale.

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 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. Their Royal Highnesses feel fortunate to have enjoyed this day with family and the godparents of Archie. Their son, Archie, was baptised wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown which has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years. The original Royal Christening Robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. It was subsequently worn for generations of Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren until 2004, when The Queen commissioned this handmade replica, in order for the fragile historic outfit to be preserved, and for the tradition to continue.

Kongelig dåp

Lille Archie ble døpt i en tradisjonell dåpskjole i det private kapellet på Windsor Castle av erkebiskopen av Canterbury.

Men vi har ikke fått vite hvem fadderne til Archie er.

Sussex Royal la også ut et annet nydelig bilde av den lille familien:
