Royal family leaves chapel after Prince Louis' christening

10 Juillet, 2018, 10:07 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

The occasion? His christening.

Lady Laura Meade is married to Prince William's close friend James, who is Princess Charlotte's godfather.

"She loved all the old classics and Harry had the brilliant idea of starting a little library of first editions for Louis, Charlotte and George to enjoy as they get older".

Prince Louis will be christened in the Lily Font, a silver gilt font and bowl decorated in lilies, ivy and cherubs.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were also in attendance, as well as Pippa and James Middleton. White gowns, or "robes", were christening fashion going back to the 1700s, according to the archives at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Sources said it had not been made on health grounds. The original, retired in order to preserve it, was worn for all royal baptisms since 1841.

With both fabrics sourced from United Kingdom locations, and a local seamstress chosen to craft the piece, Queen Victoria supported local industries through her fashion choice.

Three years later, Kate was seen in the dress again during a garden party at Buckingham Palace in honour of the Queen. It was carefully washed with spring water after use and stored in a dark room, the Telegraph reported, to keep it in its best condition. "Did they borrow them from the Queen?" one commentator wrote.

St James's Palace was built between 1531 to 1536 by King Henry VII and dedicated to Saint James the Less.

As is with most royal christenings, several traditions were followed.

Our bets are on Princess Charlotte doing the same. Guests were served slices of christening cake, which is a tier taken from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding cake.

Princess Charlotte was captured crying at her 2015 christening.

The six godparents, who also attended with their spouses, are all friends or family of William and Kate.

What did Prince George wear?

Also arriving at St James' Palace were the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as Meghan Markle made an eye-catching appearance in a fitted olive frock and matching fascinator, as well as proud grandparents Prince Charles and Camilla and Michael and Carole Middleton. He was accompanied by his parents, of course.
