Baby Archie Will Wear the Royal Christening Gown
Ever since 1841, when Queen Victoria commissioned a cream-colored gown for her oldest daughter, Princess Victoria, the Honiton Christening Gown (as it was named for the fine lace used to make it) was worn by all members of the royal family. However, in 2008, Queen Elizabeth deemed the gown too fragile to continue wearing and called upon her dressmaker, Angela Kelly, to make a replica of the gown. The Earl and Countess of Wessex's son, James, Viscount Severn, was the first to wear the new gown, and since then, the gown has been worn by all three of the Cambridge children. It will also be the same one worn by Baby Sussex.
