Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana was christened today in a ceremony at St. Mary Magdalene Church on the Sandringham estate of her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
The 2-month-old daughter of Prince William and Princess Kate arrived to the church in a stroller pushed by Kate.
The family was greeted by well-wishers who had gathered outside the church to see the fourth-in-line to the British throne.
Kate then picked up Charlotte to carry her inside.
William held George’s hand as they entered and left the church, and George at one point waved to the crowds.
Charlotte, born May 2 in London, wore the same christening gown worn by her big brother, Prince George, at his christening. The gown, remade by the queen’s dresser, Angela Kelly, in 2008, is an exact replica of the gown first commissioned by Queen Victoria 174 years ago and has been used for every generation of royal infants.
Duchess Kate wore a white Alexander McQueen ensemble to the ceremony, while Prince George sported a white shirt with red shorts.
The queen wore a rose Angela Kelly dress and hat.
Joining the family for Princess Charlotte’s christening were the queen, Prince Charles and Camilla, and Kate’s family, siblings Pippa and James, and her parents, Carole and Michael Middleton.
Charlotte’s uncle, Prince Harry, missed the christening because he is spending the summer in Africa.
Also in attendance were Charlotte’s godparents and their spouses.
Prince William and Princess Kate announced Princess Charlotte’s five godparents this weekend: Princess Diana’s niece, The Hon. Laura Fellowes; Kate’s cousin, Adam Middleton; and three of the couple’s friends: Sophie Carter, James Meade and Thomas van Straubenzee.
