Royal Christenings: Through the Years

As Princess Charlotte's big day arrives, take a look back at the other Windsor family members who have participated in this centuries-old tradition


In a nod to one of her namesakes, Charlotte is christened at Sandringham's St. Mary Magdalene church in Norfolk, England, where Princess Diana was once baptized. The family uses a lot of the same touches from Prince George's big day – the christening gown, lily font and archbishop, among other details – but there is one difference: the family of four walks to the ceremony together, giving fans a glimpse of the pint-size royal heirs.
