Family traditions: Princess Charlotte's christening

Images/Press Association The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge drew on tradition for the christening of their daughter Princess Charlotte. The couple pushed the princess in a pram the Queen used for two of her own children. Like her brother, George, Charlotte was christened in a replica of the lace and satin christening gown made for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Victoria, the princess royal, in 1841 (pictured below). And Charlotte was christened using the ornate silver gilt Lily Font which is usually on show as part of the crown jewels at the Tower of London, and has been used in previous royal christenings.
