Princess Charlotte’s christening was a very stylish royal affair

by

The day has finally arrived!

Princess Charlotte’s christening has begun. She made her first public appearance since appearing outside the hospital the day she was born.

The ceremony took place at the same church where Princess Diana was christened in 1961. The ceremony was small with Kate and William, Prince George, the Queen, Kate’s parents, her sister Pippa, brother brother James and William’s parents Charles and Camilla.

The five godparents of Princess Charlotte were also in attendance. Named earlier today her godparents did not include either of William or Kate’s siblings.

Instead they were made up of friends of William and Kate, along with family members such as Princess Diana’s niece Laura Fellowes.

Kate’s long-time friend Sophie Carter was chosen, as were James Meade a school friend of William, Adam Middleton, Kate’s cousin and Thomas van Straubenzee who William also went to school with.

Thomas, pictured above, married Lady Melissa Percy in 2013 at Alnwick Castle, better known to Harry Potter buffs as the Hogwarts castle, FYI. William attended the wedding but Kate could not as she pregnant with Prince George who is now almost 2-years old.

 

Princess Charlotte wore her brother’s replica of a more than 170-year old royal heirloom made by Angela Kelly, who is dressmaker to the Queen.

The family of four made their way to the church in quite a stylish fashion, Kate wore a white Alexander McQueen  while she pushed Charlotte’s pram past the people lined up outside to greet the royals.

Prince William looked very dapper in his suit while Prince George had an adorable red and white themed look for the day. Prince George’s outfit is reminding twitter users of his dad’s outfit the first time he met Prince Harry.

Prince Harry who is currently in Nambia, missed out on the family occasion. While his stepmother Camilla almost suffered a serious wardrobe malfunction when a gust of wind caught her off guard in her pale blue style.

The Middleton’s co-ordinated their looks with ivory outfits in line with Kate’s own outfit.

After the christening the Queen hosted tea at her Sandringham home, where guests will also have cake from William and Kate’s 2011 wedding.
