Baby Archie's Christening Photos Reveal 'Most Gorgeous Royal Baby Ever,' According to Fans
The Royal Family has gotten used to being the center of attention, but the same can't be said for little baby Archie, who already has plenty of fans around the world.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's son still doesn't know what life has in store for him, but he already earned the title of the "most gorgeous Royal Baby ever."
This opinion has been shared by several fans, who couldn't help but storm social media to comment on Archie's official christening photos.

SHOWING OFF THE ROYAL BABY
The pictures were made public hours after the ceremony, which took place in a private chapel at Windsor Castle, in London, England.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex posted two pictures - the official portrait with some members of the family and a black-and-white one with Archie between them.
FANS GUSH OVER ARCHIE
As aforementioned, fans left plenty of positive comments, most of them praising the new royal baby as well as his parents, with wishes for God to protect them "from all the evil and envy around.

However, some people didn't agree with the last part, arguing that envy is a viable option for those who can't aspire to be one of the royals but are required to support them.

Envy? How can you blame anyone for that? When one cannot aspire to be a royal yet is required to support them, envy is really the only option.— Michel (@monchichichacha) July 6, 2019
QUEEN ELIZABETH DIDN'T ATTEND THE CHRISTENING
Archie was baptized by Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, but there was some noticeable figures that didn't attend the ceremony nor appeared in the official portrait.
Queen Elizabeth, along with her husband, Prince Philip, couldn't be present due to an engagement conflict with her schedule. Prince William and Kate Middleton's children were nowhere to be seen as well.

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.

PRINCE DIANA'S SISTERS MADE A RARE APPEARANCE
Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles, gladly showed up to the ceremony, along with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, flew in from the United States just for the special occasion and posed for the royal portrait next to Princess Diana's sisters, Ladies Jane Fellowes and Sarah McCorquodale.
