Royal baby christened in intimate ceremony
We couldn’t resist for our Monday Moods… The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were proud parents at the weekend… Kate pushed the princess in a pram the Queen had used for two of her own children. Several thousand well wishers greeted the royals, while Prince George delighted the crowds on foot, he really is so cute! The christening was held at the Church of St Mary Magdalene, and attended by guests including the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh. Other attendees included Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, Catherine’s parents Michael and Carole Middleton and her two siblings, Pippa and James.
The baptism, conducted by Archbishop of Canterbury the Most Reverend Justin Welby, was held in private.
The Duchess of Cambridge graced her daughter’s christening in an elegant dress by a designer she knows all too well, and staying true to her style is why she’s still reigning as a global fashion icon.
Wearing a classic knee-length cream coat dress by British designer Alexander McQueen, Kate proved she’s still a creature of habit in terms of her sartorial tendencies since the appearance evoked the memory of the similar long-sleeved McQueen creation she wore to Prince George’s christening.
This time, Kate’s dress was more streamlined with its sharp shift-style silhouette, dramatic inverted neckline and exaggerated lapels which became the focal point of the piece, making a stark contrast to the playful ruffles and flared hemline of the 2013 creation.
Kate stuck to her guns once again with the accessorising by opting for Mappin & Webb jewellery and a Jane Taylor hat, and this one oozed sophistication with its dainty white floral design.
The Royal couple announced ahead of the christening that they had chosen five godparents for the princess. Godparents: From left to right, Sophie Carter, James Meade, Thomas van Straubenzee, Adam Middleton and Laura Fellowes.
This was apparently the first time William, Kate, George and Charlotte have been seen together in public. Such sightings won’t become commonplace in the future. The Cambridges are keen to limit their children’s public appearances as they grow up, as you can quite imagine. We do wish this delightful family all the very best for the future, they make us very proud!
