It might have been a big day for Princess Charlotte – but it was her mum, the Duchess of Cambridge, who totally stole the show at her daughter’s christening in a fitted white Alexander McQueen coat dress.
Kate matched her gown with a white Jane Taylor hat – and accessorised the whole look with an old-fashioned, vintage-style black Millson pram. Which could be the next big thing in the world of stylish parenting, who knows?
Nine-week-old Princess Charlotte was christened at the church of St Mary Magdelene in Sandringham and drew big crowds – many who camped outside for the first glimpse of Kate and Prince William with both their children.
Princess Charlotte wore a cream christening gown based on a historic design worn by royal babies since the reign of Queen Victoria.
She’s grown a fair bit since we saw her leave the Lindo Wing when she was born in May.
And stylish auntie Pippa Middleton plumped for cream, too – she wore a polo neck dress, and like Kate, a bespoke Jane Taylor hat with organdy and feather details.
Prince George made sure to get his fair share of attention, looking handsome in a pair of red shorts and a white and red embroidered top – and was photographed peeping over the top of his little sister’s pram.
He’s going to make an excellent big brother – we can tell already.
The ceremony was attended by 21 official guests, including the Queen and Prince Philip, and performed by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. Charlotte was christened using water from the River Jordan.
Charlotte has five godparents, though none of them are from the royal circle.
They include Adam Middleton, who is Kate’s cousin, and Lady Laura Fellowes, a niece of Princess Diana.
Then there’s James Meade and Thomas van Straubenzee, school friends of William, and Sophie Carter, one of Kate’s best friends.
