Britain’s Princess Charlotte of Cambridge christened
Britain’s Princess Charlotte of Cambridge was christened on Sunday (05.07.15).
The nine-week-old royal – who is the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – was baptised at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in front of family and friends including Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh.
The Duchess’ parents Carole and Michael Middleton were also in attendance as well as Prince William and Catherine’s 23-month-old son Prince George.
Other attendees included the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and Catherine’s brother and sister, James and Pippa Middleton.
Well wishers gathered near the entrance of the church, offering their congratulations to the Duke and the Duchess, who pushed Princess Charlotte – the fourth in line to the throne – in a pram down the path towards the Sandringham church.
The baptism was conducted by Archbishop of Canterbury the Most Reverend Justin Welby in private at the same church where the late Princess Diana of Wales – Prince William’s mother – was christened in 1961.
The royal couple also announced Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana’s five godparents; William’s cousin Laura Fellowes and Catherine’s cousin Adam Middleton as well as their friends Thomas van Straubenzee, Sophie Carter and James Meade.
