The Babtism of Princess Charlotte

Princess Charlotte was christened infront of the Queen and close family and friends as the Cambridges had their first public outing as a family of four. The service took place at St. Mary Magdalene Church on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate in Norfolk. Everyone looked magnificent!

Charlotte was christened in a replica of the intricate lace and satin christening gown made for Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter, Victoria, the Princess Royal, in 1841. The original is too delicate to wear and its exact copy is now used for royal baptisms.
