First official pictures from Archie Mountbatten-Windsor's christening

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have issued official images of the christening of Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, as the two-month old baby is welcomed into the church.

Archie was christened at Windsor Castle's private chapel today, in a service led by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Official pictures from the couple's personal photographer Chris Allerton were taken in the castle's Green Drawing Room, the same venue as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding images.

In a departure from recent tradition, the public were not permitted to see the arrival of guests, but Buckingham Palace have made two pictures available.

Chris Allerton said: "I am honoured to take the official photographs at the christening of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, and to once again, be part of such a special and joyous occasion for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex."
