Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex (aka Meghan Markle), released two images on their official Instagram account Saturday after their son's christening.

Two-month-old Archie was christened "in a small private ceremony" at Windsor Castle.

The official portrait shows Meghan, Harry, and Archie surrounded by members of their family, including familiar royal faces Prince Charles; Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall; Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge; and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge.

Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, is also in the beautiful picture, standing alongside two of Harry's aunts, the late Princess Diana's sisters: Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes.

Harry and Meghan also shared a second, intimate photo and a personal message to the public thanking it for its support since Archie's birth.

"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 Instagram caption reads.

"They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment."

Although Harry and Meghan have shared some personal snaps of their son on their Instagram for Mother's Day and Father's Day, today's images are the first released to the public that give a good look at Archie's face.

Per Buckingham Palace, little Archie's christening was carried out in accordance with royal tradition.

The ceremony was held in the private chapel of Windsor Castle and officiated by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.

In accordance with royal tradition, Archie was baptized in the Lily Font, using water from the River Jordan.

Following the tradition for royal babies for nearly 200 years, Archie wore (a replica of) the royal family's christening robe.

Although little Archie's christening gown looks like the one worn by his father, it's actually a replica of the antique garment.

The royal family's traditional christening gown, which was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and worn by generations of royal babies, was retired for preservation in 2004.

A replica of the gown has been used for all christenings since then, including the ceremonies of Archie's cousins Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

Congratulations to the happy family of three!
