Princess Charlotte's christening was a royal affair to remember!
England's most esteemed family took to St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, Norfolk for the ceremony on July 5. Notable attendees included Charlotte's big brother Prince George, proud parents Prince William and Kate Middleton, great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Kate's parents Michael Middleton and Carole Middleton and her siblings Pippa Middleton and James Middleton. And of course, Princess Charlotte's five godparents were in attendance.
The Windsors were the portrait of perfection, as you can imagine: Kate sported a white Alexander McQueen dress coat, Jane Taylor fascinator and Mappin & Webb jewelry, including simple white gold drop earrings and a delicate white gold necklace. Prince William—in a trim navy suit—held hands with Prince George, who sported an exceptionally adorable red-and-white short and collared Rachel Riley shirt combo that was strikingly similar to one William wore at that age.
By the way, the chic Millson pram is the same one the Queen used for her two youngest children, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward, as The Telegraph reported.
Queen Elizabeth stepped out in another eye-catching ensemble, wearing a pale pink frock coat with a floral dress underneath. Her hat matched the coat (naturally), and she toted her go-to patent leather black purse for the occasion.
And Pippa Middleton again reminded us why she was such an attention-grabber at the royal wedding in 2011: The style maven sported a white Emilia Wickstead dress and, just like Kate, an ornate Jane Taylor fascinator.
Camilla opted for a ladylike blue dress with a wide-brim hat and nude captoe pumps. Just as lovely, Kate's lookalike mother Carole appeared in a cream-colored coat with gray embroidery (all the better to complement her granddaughter's cream lace gown) paired with a matching fascinator and dove-gray heels.
Princess Charlotte, meanwhile, donned a custom Honiton lace and white satin gown designed by dressmaker to the Queen, Andrea Kelly. The sweeping confection is a replica of the 174-year-old gown that has been worn to royal christenings for generations, and a mirror image of the one Prince George wore to his own christening in 2013.
Mama Kate doted on the adorable princess before entering the church, solidifying this ceremony as one of the royal family's most aw-inducing outings yet.
