George wore the a handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe made in 1841 for the christening of Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter, Victoria, Princess Royal.
The original gown was worn by the babies at all royal christenings until 2008, when the Queen commissioned her dressmaker and personal assistant Angela Kelly to make a replica to preserve the original.
George, the three-month-old future King, was baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev Justin Welby, at the Chapel Royal in St James’s Palace this afternoon.
His seven godparents include William and Kate’s principal private secretary Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, a former SAS officer who has acted as mentor to both William, Kate, and Prince Harry.
Emilia, who runs an interior design company called d’Erlanger and Sloan, was at Marlborough College with Kate and was once mentioned as a possible wife for William.
Her husband, scion of a wealthy family that made its money in the Far East, was in the same year as William at Eton.
Here’s little George aged three months at his christening, which was performed by the Archbishop of Canterbury in central London.
