The Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared two photos of 2-month-old baby Archie today, and my how he’s grown! 

The couple posted the pictures on their official @sussexroyal Instagram account following baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor’s private christening at Windsor Castle.

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

The first photo, also shared on the official Royal family Twitter account, is a formal portrait with Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, and Archie front and center, surrounded by family at the palace. Archie is wearing the official Royal christening gown—a handmade replica of the delicate Victorian-era lace gown that’s been retired to preserve the garment—as he sits contentedly on Mom’s lap. And it’s hard to say for sure, but Archie looks to be sporting the beginnings of Dad’s red hair! 

The second shot, a black and white candid also taken by Royal photographer Chris Allerton, is a more intimate portrait of Archie and his parents, and it’s an instant framer of the photogenic family of three.

The photos have given us the best look we’ve had at Archie since his arrival on May 6th—and by all appearances, the newest Royal is happy, healthy, and as cute as can be.

This morning, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was christened in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle at an intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. 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. They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment. Their Royal Highnesses feel fortunate to have enjoyed this day with family and the godparents of Archie. 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.
