Princess Charlotte’s Christening: Find Out Whose Dress She Wore and How Many Godparents She Has

Portraits of Princess Charlotte and Prince George
The first official portraits of Princess Charlotte are here.

Princess Charlotte had her royal christening today. 

The two-month-old was christened at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Sandringham, England on Sunday (July 5, 2015).  The royal baby was accompanied by Kate Middleton, Prince William, and her brother Prince George.

Today made her first appearance since her birth in May. She wore a replica of the satin and lace Royal Christening Robe her brother wore during his christening in 2013.

The robe has been in the family for more than 170 years and was also worn by Prince William in 1982, Prince Charles in 1948, and Queen Elizabeth II wore it in 1926.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a white Alexander Mcqueen dress coat and matching Jane Taylor hat and heels, while William sported a navy suit and blue shirt.

Prince George wore a white, short sleeve shirt, and a pair of red shorts, practically identical to the outfit once worn by his father in 1984.

Princess Charlotte has five godparents: Sophie Carter (one of Kate’s longtime friends), James Meade (a school friend of William’s), Adam Middleton (Kate’s cousin), Laura Fellowes (William’s cousin), and Thomas van Straubenzee (William’s friend).

The list does not include his brother Prince Harry and her sister Pippa Middleton, as many had speculated. The two were also not one of George’s seven godparents.
