Princess Charlotte's christening: See the photos!

Wonderwall Logo By By Mark Gray of Wonderwall | Slide 1 of 11: Royally picturesque! Princess Charlotte was christened at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Sandringham, England on July 5 and her famous family could not have looked more perfect. Charlotte arrived in style, being pushed in a vintage Millson stroller by her mother, Duchess Kate, while her older brother, Prince George, clutched Prince William's hand. The guests began arriving at 4:30 pm local time for the 45-minute service. Kate looked appropriately ravishing, per usual, donning an all-cream Alexander McQueen ensemble. George, however, attempted to steal the show as he adorably strolled down the walk leading to the church in cherry red shorts and a white shirt. The bewildered tot looked around at the crowd and snuck a few peaks at his sister. At one point, he even gave a little wave, delighting the huge crowd that had gathered at the site 100 miles north of London. For her christening, Princess Charlotte wore the traditional christening gown, which was worn by George in October 2013 — the gown is a replica of the historic royal christening gown first worn by Queen Victoria's daughter in 1841. After the service ended, Kate was seen bouncing Charlotte in her arms as she chatted with the Queen, who donned a pastel pink dress and hat to the festivities. The palace revealed that William and Kate chose two hymns for the service: "Praise to the Lord, The Almighty," which was sung in Westminster Abbey at the 60th anniversary of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth and "Come Down, O Love Divine". Kensington Palace revealed that Charlotte was baptized in a flute bowl decorated around the edge with spays of ivy and lilies. Other notables who attended the event included Charlotte's grandparents Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Kate's parents Michael and Carole Middleton, as well as Duchess of Cambridge's siblings Pippa Middleton and James Middleton. Charlotte had five godparents at the ceremony.
