See All the Sweet Pictures From Princess Charlotte's Christening
The British royal family gathered for a very special occasion on Sunday: Princess Charlotte's christening! The young royal was christened at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene on Queen Elizabeth II's Sandringham Estate, where the late Princess Diana was baptized. Princess Charlotte, whose five godparents were revealed shortly before the ceremony, wore a replica of the royal christening robe that, until 2004, was used to baptize every royal baby since Queen Victoria's time. It's the same replica that Prince George wore for his baptism in 2013, and she also followed in her big brother's footsteps by using the traditional silver-gilt Lily Font, which has been used for almost all royal baptisms since 1841.
Prince William and Kate Middleton were all smiles on their daughter's big day, with Kate wearing a cream outfit for the christening. Although it was a private service for fewer than 30 guests, fans of the royal family who made their way to the church got to see Prince George's adorable arrival with his parents. George's nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, who wore a Mary Poppins-inspired outfit to the ceremony, also kept a close eye on him.
