And the mother of the royal baby wore Dior.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry hosted a private christening for their first child and son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor at Windsor Castle on Saturday.

As seen in official photos released soon after the event, the Duchess of Sussex wore a long sleeve, long bespoke white Christian Dior dress, according to Meghan's Mirror. She paired the look with a matching hat, nude suede Dior pumps and Cartier diamond stud earrings. The Duke of Sussex sported a light gray suit, white shirt, pale blue tie and brown shoes.

Archie himself was baptized wearing the handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin. The original was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. In 2004, Queen Elizabeth II commissioned the handmade replica, which was later worn by royals such as Prince William and Kate Middleton's kids Prince GeorgePrincess Charlotte and Prince Louis at their christenings.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended Archie's baptism without their kids. William wore a navy suit and Kate wore what appeared to be a salmon pink Stella McCartney dress she had also worn to the queen's 2018 Christmas lunch, paired with a red padded headband. The queen and husband Prince Philip did not attend the christening due to a prior engagement.
