The christening will take place at St. Mary Magdalene Church, at Queen Elizabeth's Norfold's estate—the same place Princess Diana was baptized. Jason Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, will perform the honours.

Prince George was also christened by Justin Welby, but his christening was held at the Chapel Royal, in St. James's Palace in London.


Lots of people are asking what Prince Charlotte will wear on her big day. So, we sought deets from our very own royal expert, mobile editor Alyssa Ashton. "I don’t know why they are asking what Charlotte will wear," says Alyssa. "She will wear the same gown George wore. Duh!" Hehe, love!

You may remember, Prince George wore a handmade lace gown by Angela Kelly, the Queen's dressmaker, which was made to look just like christening robe worn by his royal ancestors.

Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne. Her full name—Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge—has been registered by her parents, Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton (see the birth certificate here).

In other royal news, Prince William's paternity leave is over; he's back to work as a pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance. The family's currently living in their Amner Hall abode on the Sandringham estate.


More to come... We're expecting official photos of Princess Charlotte and her big bro any day now!
