Princess Charlotte Gets Christened At Sandringham
The Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and little Prince George, showed up at St. Magdalene Church to christen Princess Charlotte in Sandringham, Norfolk.
On July 5th, 2 month old Charlotte was christened at St. Magdalene Church just like her older brother was over a year ago. She also wore the same christening gown that George wore which is a replica of Queen Victoria's first child's garment. And that wasn't the only tradition that was passed on that day.
Prince George also wore a replica of Prince William's outfit he wore to meet Harry when he was born. Another, much more sentimental tradition was that the late Princess Diana also had her christening at the same church back in 1961.
There were a total of 5 godparents which included friend, Tom van Straubenzee who played key part in Will and Kate’s 2011 wedding, James Meade who was a classmate of Will’s at college, Sophie Carter who is a friend of Kate’s, Laura Fellowes, the daughter of Princess Diana’s sister, and lastly Adam Middleton who is Kate’s cousin. Talk about some major birthday presents she'll get in the future!
Princess Charlotte was baptized using the Lily Font, which was also an old tradition owned by Queen Victoria. The water used to baptize Charlotte was flown all the way from the Jordan River in the Holy Land.
Talk about fancy! Wouldn't expect anything less from The Royal Family.
