Meghan Markle took after sister-in-law Kate Middleton at baby Archie's christening.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex wanted to keep the ceremony private, but did treat the public to a couple of pictures from the christening, taken by royal photographer Chris Allerton.
In the images, baby Archie looked adorable in a tradition royal gown, while mother Meghan dressed in a stunning white Dior dress.
Meghan has always been one to think outside the box when it comes to royal outfits, but this time the Duchess took after a classic Kate Middleton tradition.
The Duchess of Cambridge has worn white or cream to all three of her children's christenings, Prince George's in 2013, Princess Charlotte's in 2015 and Prince Louis' 2018.
While it is unclear the reason for the tradition, it appears this is one Meghan Markle has taken on as well.
Sitting next to her husband Prince Harry and holding her son, the Duchess looked stunning in a white Dior gown and matching fascinator.
Eagle-eyed royal fans are ecstatic Meghan took after her sister-in-law, with one commenting: "I am so glad Meghan also followed Kate's steps and chose white/cream - it matches with the gown worn by the children so well!"
Another added: "I love both wore white for their kids christening."
While we don't know for sure, it is thought that the decision to wear white or cream is to match with the baby.
