We are back with a quick christening update, and a look at what Prince George wore on recent occasions.
First, the latest on Princess Charlotte’s christening, just days away now. Kensington Palace announced today they will allow the public to watch the royal family as they arrive and leave St. Mary Magdalene Church this Sunday. The church is on the grounds of Sandringham, the Queen’s estate; it is also where Kate and William’s country home is located.
While the service itself will be private, the public is invited to take part in another way; more from Gordon Rayner’s story in today’s Telegraph:
The royal couple have asked for the paddock outside St Mary Magdalene Church, Sandringham, to be opened to the public so they can see the baby before and after her baptism.
The church itself will be open to invited guests only, but thousands of people are expected to turn out for a rare opportunity to see the fourth in line to the throne.
It will be the first time in living memory that the christening of such a senior member of the Royal family has involved the public in any way.
Below, a look at the crowds outside St. Mary’s this past Christmas.
This is the first time we will see the Cambridges as a family of four. We will have more on the christening before the end of the week.
