Princess Charlotte of Cambridge’s christening: Kate and William’s daughter likely to wear brother Prince George’s baptism gown

HRH Duchess of Cambridge

Prince George of Cambridge was dressed up at his baptism in a christening lace gown created by Queen Elizabeth II’s designer Angela Kelly in 2008, as the original dress was too fragile to be worn.

The original christening lace gown was worn in 1841 by Queen Victoria’s eldest child, daughter Victoria, Princess Royal.

The dress was also worn by George’s father Prince William, uncle Prince Harry, grandfather Charles, Prince of Wales, great grandmother Queen Elizabeth II and others.

The third in line to the throne was christened at St. James’s Palace by the Archbishop of Canterbury on October 23, 2013.

Princess Charlotte of Cambridge is set to be baptized this Sunday, July 5, at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Norfolk, in the same place where the Duke’s late mother Princess Diana was baptized, by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby.

Yesterday, June 29, the Palace released a statament through which warm-wishers were invited to take part in this historic moment – Princess Charlotte of Cambridge’s christening.

The godparents are yet to be announced by the Kensington Palace.
