The Baby Makes Its First Official Public Appearance at the Royal Christening
The royal christening takes place several days to weeks after the birth, with the Head of the Church of England conducting the ceremony. The baby wears a traditional christening gown for the occasion, one that's been used for eight generations of royal babies. This is the first official appearance of the baby in public. In recent years, however, the royal couple makes a soft appearance with their baby when going home from St. Mary's Hospital.
