Prince Louis who is third child of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be christened in an intimate ceremony at the same church where his older brother Prince George was christened  on October 23rd 2013. This will be the first time we might see the family of five together.

The expected guest list for the christening ceremony includes Her Majesty, Prince of Wales Charles, and Duchess of Cornwall Camilla along with Middleton family. It is believed that the names of the Godparents will be announced on the same day.

The chapel royal holds a special place for the family. Kate was confirmed into the Church of England at the same church in 2011 before her wedding to Prince William. William’s cousin Princess Beatrice’s christening took place there in 1988 that William attended with his mother. The late Princess of Wales, Diana was laid at the chapel royal in 1997 before her funeral.

The Kensington Palace confirmed that the service will be a private ceremony though one photographer will be present. So we can expect to see some nice photographs of the ceremony later in the day just like George’s christening.

The christening ceremony of Princess Charlotte was almost a public one where we saw the member of the royal family walking down to the church with George.

Prince Louis will wear hand-made replica of the royal christening robe, made by Angela Kelly, the head-dressmaker to the Queen. The original Honiton lace and satin robe that is now 172 years old, was last wore by Lady Louise Windsor in 2004. After years of wearing it had become too fragile to use, so in 2008 the Queen commissioned a replica. It features the same length skirt, elaborate collars and bow as its predecessor. The first baby to wear the replica robe was the son of Earl and Countess of Wessex James, the Viscount Severn.

The original, made by Janet Sutherland, was made of Spitalfields silk and Honiton lace. It was worn by 62 royal babies including Princess Elizabeth at her christening held at Buckingham Palace on 26 May 1926 also by the Prince William here shown in picture . Prince George and Princess Charlotte are the most recent royal babies to be christened in the new gown.

After charming the world with their cuteness at Trooping the Colour, Prince George and Princess Charlotte today joined Duchess of Cambridge at Beaufort Polo Club in Gloucestershire to watch their father Prince William playing a charity polo match.

It was Charlotte’s first appearance at a polo match – an event that remained a constant part of her parent’s love story. Before their marriage, Prince William and the then Kate Middleton were seen many times at polo matches much to the delight of royal fans.

Last time we saw Kate at a polo match in 2015 with Prince George. Just after 3 years little George is a young lad now.

The Cambridge family was also joined by Peter Phillips and Autumn Phillips and their kids. Yesterday we saw Savannah trying to shut George’s mouth during national anthem in a candid moment. The Cambridge kids are already mixing up with their cousins. It reminds us a lot of William having fun with Zara and Peter.

At one moment Charlotte tried to perform a headstand leaving her mother in giggles and George was seen trying to do some art work. The usual camera shy George was having time of the day.

Kids were playing chase in which it seems they also got their mother involved. Little Charlotte was trying to keep with with her lanky brother.

Duchess of Cambridge in stunning McQueen for Trooping the Colour

Today, Duchess of Cambridge Catherine joined Her Majesty and the members of the royal family for the Trooping the Colour Prade at Whitehall. The Trooping of the Colour has marked the official birthday of the British Sovereign for over 260 years. It was Kate’s second official appearance since giving birth to her third child Prince Louis in April.

Trooping the Colour is a ceremony performed by regiments of the British armies. This impressive display of pageantry is held on the occasion of the Queen’s Official Birthday. It takes place in June each year and is carried out by her personal troops, the Household Division, on Horse Guards Parade, with the Queen herself attending and taking the salute.

Trooping the Colour Prade
The Royal Family

The custom of Trooping the Colour dates back to the time of Charles II in the 17th. Century when the Colours of a regiment were used as a rallying point in battle and were therefore trooped in front of the soldiers every day to make sure that every man could recognise those of his own regiment. In London, the Foot Guards used to do this as part of their daily Guard Mounting on Horse Guards and the ceremonial of the modern Trooping the Colour parade is along similar lines. The first traceable mention of The Sovereign’s Birthday being ‘kept’ by the Grenadier Guards is in 1748 and again, after George III became King in 1760, it was ordered that parades should mark the King’s Birthday. From the accession of George IV they became, with a few exceptions and notably the two World Wars, an annual event.

Over 1400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians come together each June in a great display of military precision, horsemanship and fanfare to mark The Queen’s official birthday. Some 113 words of command are given by the Officer in Command of the Parade. The parade route extends from Buckingham Palace along The Mall to Horse Guards Parade, Whitehall and back again.

During her reign The Queen has attended Trooping the Colour every year except 1955 when it was cancelled because of the general strike. Here, the then Princess Elizabeth accompanies King George VI on the way to Trooping the Colour in 1947.

In the morning The Royal Procession started from the Buckingham Palace. The Queen used to attend on horseback herself, but in recent years has travelled by carriage.

Once The Queen arrived at Horse Guard’s Parade in Whitehall, she was greeted by a Royal salute and carries out an inspection of the troops, who were fully trained and operational soldiers wearing the ceremonial uniform of red tunics and bearskin hats.

After the event, the extended Royal Family gatherd on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with Her Majesty to watch a fly-past by the Royal Air Force. A 41-gun salute was also fired in Green Park to mark the occasion.

Today’s trooping the colour parade also gave the glimpse of changing dynamics of royal family. Queen Elizabeth was alone in her carriage as due to the health issues at the age of 96 her husband  Prince Philip did not join her for the first time in history.

Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Cornwall were joined by Prince harry since 2011 but this year both were in separate carriage.

The ice blue structured dress features square neckline, fitted waist, 3-quarter sleeves with slightly puffed shoulders. As always the head designer of the label Sarah Burton did an amazing job while dressing for her loyal client Kate.
