Princess Charlotte, the fourth in the line to the British throne, has been christened in a church at St Mary Magdalene at Sandringham, Norfolk. The christening was attended by a handful of guests including the Queen and Duke of Edinburg, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Kate’s parents Michael and Carole Middleton and her siblings James and Pippa. Archbishop of Canterbury baptized Charlotte, who has also conducted Prince George’s baptism.

The 2-month old Royal baby arrived at the ceremony in a pram pushed by her mother Catherine, and was accompanied by her father Prince William and elder brother Prince George. Kate was wearing a white coat and fascinator while Charlotte was in the replica of the laced and satin royal gown, which has been worn in royal christening since 1841, according to BBC.

Princess Diana, her late grandmother was also christened in the same church in 1961. The Lily font and the water from River Jordan were used during baptizing. The ceremony lasted about half an hour, after which the guests were taken to Sandringham House and served with tea and christening cake, which also included a tier of William and Kate’s wedding.

Before the ceremony, the names of the godparents of Princess Charlotte have been revealed. Surprisingly, no member of the royal family was given the honor. William’s cousin Lady Laura Fellowes and two friends Thomas Van Straubenzee and James Meade were chosen by the Duke while Kate picked cousin Adam Middleton and her friend Sophie Carter as godparents for the Princess Charlotte.

Prince Harry could not attend the ceremony as he was in Africa on a charity visit. Harry also missed Charlotte’s birth on May 2. He was having a tour to Australia at that time.
