Kate Middleton gave birth to little Charlotte Elizabeth Diana on Saturday 2 May and today she will be christened at the Church of St Mary Magdalene, Sandringham.

A number of very important guests will be in attendance including The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, Kate’s parents Carole and Michael Middleton, her sister Pippa Middleton and brother James Middleton.

Prince William and Kate have asked a number of their friends and family to be godparents to Princess Charlotte.

The names have been revealed as one of William’s oldest school friends Thomas van Straubenzee, Eton school friend James Meade, William’s cousin Laura Fellowes, Kate’s cousin Adam Middleton and her friend Sophie Carter.

Kate and Wills will walk from Sandringham House to the church with Charlotte and her older brother Prince George.

Princess Charlotte will be wearing a handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe made by The Queen’s dressmaker Angela Kelly.

The Lily Font and water from the River Jordan will be used in the baptism and after a tea will be held at Sandringham House with the christening cake being a tier from Kate and William’s wedding cake.
