Princess Charlotte Official Christening Portraits – See PHOTOS!
Princess Charlotte had her christened on Sunday, and now the official portraits marking the occasion are here. The pictures were taken by famed photographer Mario Testino, who also photographed Kate Middleton and Prince William for their official engagement portraits in 2001. See Princess Charlotte’s official portraits below.
The official portraits feature various combinations of Princess Charlotte with members of the royal family and the Middletons. As Gossip Cop reported, the christening was a small and intimate affair, with several family members and close friends in attendance, including Princess Charlotte’s brother, Prince George, Prince Charles and Camilla, Carole and Michael Middleton, and Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.
Princess Charlotte’s aunt and uncle, Pippa and James Middleton, were also at the ceremony (and are pictured), though Prince Harry was unable to attend because he was on a charity mission in Africa. Also at the christening were Princess Charlotte’s five godparents, Sophie Carter, Laura Fellowes, James Meade, Adam Middleton and Thomas van Straubenzee.
As Gossip Cop previously noted, the two-month-old princess was baptized at the St. Mary Magdalene church on Queen Elizabeth II’s property in Norfolk, a little more than 100 miles north of London. The baby’s christening was at the same church where Princess Diana had been baptized.
