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.

Last year during an interview, Prince William revealed that Catherine is a keen amateur photographer and takes photos of the children “every day”. The portrait of Charlotte and Louis seems like a random moment captured by the Duchess perfectly.

Another interesting fact about the portrait is the sweater worn by Princess Charlotte. Do you remember it?  No, let me refresh your memory!!

 

It is the same sweater Prince George wore in the official portrait issued on the 90th birthday of their Great-Grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, in which Her Majesty shared the spotlight with her all great-grandchildren.
