Harry and the Suits alum, 38, welcomed their bundle of joy in May and baptized him two months later. The royal couple shared a portrait with their extended family on social media at the time, including Prince William, Duchess Kate, Meghan’s mom, Doria Ragland, and Charles, among others.

“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,” the caption read. “They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment.”

The post continued, “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.”
