They’re here! On Sunday, July 5, Princess Charlotte was christened at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Sandringham, England. The infant royal was accompanied by her proud parents, Kate Middleton and Prince William, and her older brother, Prince George.
The first guests arrived at approximately 4:25 p.m. local time, and all of those attending the service came within the next eight minutes. Prince William held his son’s hand as Kate pushed the carriage with Princess Charlotte. The infant was crying when they carried her out of the pram.
Kate wore an all-cream Alexander McQueen ensemble, complete with a fascinator, and her adorable son sported cherry red shorts and a white shirt while walking with his parents and sister. The curious tot kept looking around at the crowd, but his mother stroked his head and smiled at him, and his father bent down to check that he was okay.
Charlotte’s stepgrandmother Camilla almost suffered a Marilyn Monroe moment as she entered the church and the wind blew her skirt up. Thankfully, she was able to hold it down as she waved to the crowd. The Queen wore a pastel pink dress and hat to the festivities.
After posing for several photos with other guests, including Queen Elizabeth, they entered the church for a private 45-minute service.
Other guests of importance included Charlotte’s great-grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip, plus her grandparents Prince of Wales Prince Charles, Duchess of Cornwall Camilla, Michael and Carole Middleton.
Sadly, Charlotte’s uncle Prince Harry was not in attendance as he is currently spending the summer in Namibia to work with the Nature Conservancy and Save the Rhino Trust.
