“Steeped in Royal Tradition”

Wedding dresses aren’t the only long white gowns you see in church. Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex (aka: Meghan Markle) stirred up controversy this month by choosing a private Baptism for two-month-old baby Archie. The Christening ceremony took place July 6th in a private chapel at Windsor Castle. While the royals faced backlash for keeping the momentous event intimate, they did continue royal custom with baby Archie’s Christening Gown. The heirloom lace garment is steeped in Royal tradition dating back to 1841 when Queen Victoria had it made for her eldest daughter. The version little Archie wore is a replica. The Queen had the original historic outfit preserved in 2004.
