Princess Charlotte has been christened at the church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham, the same church where Princess Diana was baptised.

The special day was full of poignant reminders of the Princess of Wales, with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge choosing her niece Laura Fellowes as one of Princess Charlotte’s godparents.

The family walked from Anmer Hall to the church, greeting thousands of well-wishers who had gathered for the special occasion

Prince George was on his best behaviour for the big day, wearing an outfit similar to the one his father wore when he met his brother Prince Harry for the first time at the hospital!

Princess Charlotte’s pram was the same one Queen Elizabeth used for two of her own children.

One of the musical pieces chosen for the christening, Vaughan Williams’ Prelude on Rhosymedre, was also played at Kate and Prince William’s wedding, as well as the wedding of Princess Diana and Princes Charles.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced five godparents for Princess Charlotte: Catherine’s cousin Adam Middleton, William’s cousin Lady Laura Fellowes (Princess Diana’s niece), his friends Thomas van Straubenzee and James Meade, and Catherine’s friend Sophie Carter.
