Harry and Meghan's son Archie christened at Windsor

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's son Archie, has been christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury in a private ceremony in front of close family and friends.

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was baptised in the private chapel at Windsor Castle on Saturday.

Prince William and Kate Middleton attended but their children were not with them, according to reports.

The Queen did not attend.

According to reports Prince Charles and Camilla were reported to have arrived at the ceremony by helicopter and Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, also attended.

The list of the 25 guests that attended has not been made public, but the sisters of Prince Harry's mother, the late Princess Diana, Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah McCorquodale - were pictured in an official photograph taken at the christening.

Communications spokesperson for the royal couple said: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to share the happiness of this day, and would like to thank everyone around the world for their ongoing support.

"They feel so fortunate to have enjoyed this special moment with family and Archie's godparents."

Prince Harry and Meghan opted to exclude the press and the public from the ceremony and chose not to reveal the names of Archie's godparents.

There was no television coverage and Royal fans hoping for more than a glimpse of baby Archie's christening today will have been disappointed.

Normally the palace would release a list of godparents but this time, their names will be kept private, in keeping with the wishes of those chosen by Harry and Meghan.

The private Christening comes after the revelation that almost £2.5m of taxpayers' money was spent renovating a property for Harry and Meghan.

My view: Baby Archie looks like his maternal grandfather Thomas Markle. Prince William kind of looked very serious, it's like his facial expression can't wait to get out of the room fast after the group picture, I wonder what's on Prince William's mind, maybe he's trying to say I'm the future King, please get me out of here. Kate Middleton looked gorgeous. Camilla looked happy. Thomas Markle should be proud that his grandchild looks just like him, even if he wasn't invited to the private ceremony. Meghan's mother Doria Ragland also looked serious.
