Princess Charlotte Christening Date Announced – Same Place as Princess Diana Was Baptized
The christening date of Princess Charlotte has been announced. The official notice was released by Kensington Palace. The notice stated:
Their Royal Highness The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to announce the christening of Princess Charlotte will take place on Sunday, July 5 at St Mary Magdalene Church, Sandringham.
Princess Charlotte will be christened by The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George and Princess Charlotte haven’t been seen in public since the birth of Princess Charlotte on May 2. The family has been spending time at their new family home, Amner Hall, on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate.
The service will be private, with some members of the public will be permitted to gather outside.
The location for the christening is the same place as Diana, Princess of Wales, William’s mother who died suddenly when William was a young boy, was baptized.
With the announcement of the christening date, there is speculation as to who will be Princess Charlotte’s godparents. Some of the names included Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Prince William’s cousins, Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton, Kate’s sister.
Prince George has seven godparents. They are Oliver Baker, Emilia Jardine-Paterson, Earl Grosvenor, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, Julia Samuel, William van Cutsem and Zara Tindall, close friends, a royal and a friend of Princess Diana.
The christening is taking place before Queen Elizabeth heads to Scotland for her annual summer vacation.
Princess Charlotte is fourth-in-line to the British throne after her grandfather, Prince Charles, her father Prince William and brother and Prince George, who is almost two years old.
