Royal Baby Christening Photos
As We Wait For Archies's Christening, Let's Look Back at Past Royal Baby Baptisms to Tide Us Over
Prince Charles, 1948
Prince Charles was born on Nov. 14, 1948, and at just 1 month old, was christened on Dec. 15 at Buckingham Palace. At that time, his mother was still Princess Elizabeth; she wouldn't ascend to the throne until February 1952.
Four generations of royals were present for Charles's christening: Prince Charles himself, his parents, Elizabeth and Philip, grandparents Queen Elizabeth and King George VI, and great-grandmother Queen Mary. Charles slept through the whole event.
