Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana was christened today in a ceremony at St. Mary Magdalene Church on the Sandringham estate of her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
The 2-month-old daughter of Prince William and Princess Kate arrived to the church in a stroller pushed by Kate.
The family was greeted by well-wishers who had gathered outside the church to see the fourth-in-line to the British throne.
Kate then picked up Charlotte to carry her inside.
William held George's hand
as they entered and left the church, and George at one point waved to the crowds. George was dressed in an outfit of red shorts and a white embroidered shirt - almost identical to the one worn by his father when he was taken as a young boy to meet brother Prince Harry for the first time.
Charlotte, born May 2 in London, wore the same christening gown worn by her big brother, Prince George, at his christening. The gown, remade by the queen's dresser, Angela Kelly, in 2008, is an exact replica of the gown first commissioned by Queen Victoria 174 years ago and has been used for every generation of royal infants.
Prince William and Princess Kate announced Princess Charlotte's five godparents this weekend: Princess Diana's niece, The Hon. Laura Fellowes; Kate's cousin, Adam Middleton; and three of the couple's friends: Sophie Carter, James Meade and Thomas van Straubenzee.
