Britain's Princess Charlotte was christened in front of Queen Elizabeth and close family and friends yesterday as the Cambridges had their first public outing as a family of four.
The ceremony for the nine-week-old had just 21 guests, led by proud parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and older brother Prince George, in the church at Queen Elizabeth's Sandringham estate.
The Princess was christened using holy water from the River Jordan.
Charlotte was pushed to her christening in a vintage pram - which the Queen used for two of her own children - in what was only the royal infant's second public appearance.
Charlotte was christened in a replica of the intricate lace and satin christening gown made for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Victoria, the Princess Royal, in 1841.
Kate was dressed in a stylish ivory Alexander McQueen outfit with Jane Taylor hat, while the Queen wore a pink Angela Kelly coat and hat.
