The touching tribute Meghan Markle paid to Diana in baby Archie's christening photograph


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex remembered Diana in a meaningful way when they celebrated their baby son’s baptism. The green chair that the royal couple sat on as they posed for the family group shot is the same regal seat that Diana and the Queen sat on in the official photos from Harry’s christening. The palace announced: “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.”

The photographs were taken by Chris Allerton in the Green Drawing Room where Meghan and Harry posed for their official royal wedding photographs and the Rose Garden at Windsor Castle.

Mr 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.”

Harry proved just how close his bond is with his late mum by making sure Diana’s sisters had a prime position in Archie’s official christening photos.

Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes stood between Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland and Prince William in the family photo.

Diana’s sisters were seen beaming proudly while standing directly behind Meghan in the shot taken by photographer Chris Allerton.

The decision to include the pair is a strong statement as they did not feature in the christening snaps for Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

But the move may come as little surprise to the royal inner circle.

According to The Telegraph, Princess Diana’s older sister Lady Jane Fellowes was among the first people to visit Harry and Meghan following the birth of Archie on May 6.

She met Archie even before the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Harry’s aunts, along with his maternal uncle, were also named in the initial birth announcement from Buckingham Palace.

The announcement read: “The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Lady Jane Fellowes, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Earl Spencer have been informed and are delighted with the news.”
