The intimate ceremony featuring the little princess drew hundreds of fans

What's a better way to celebrate the birth of Britain's princess than with a traditional christening ceremony? Britain's youngest Princess, and fourth-in-line to the throne, was christened in an intimate ceremony on Sunday with 21 guests in attendance. Needless to say, the event took place inside the 16th century Church of St Mary Magdalene, on the country estate of Queen Elizabeth II. Many onlookers waiting outside were clad in Britain's quintessential motif, the Union Jack. The crowd braved the wet weather to catch a glimpse of the royal family, with some even camping overnight for this joyous event. Prince William and Princess Kate walked to the service from a nearby residence, giving the enthusiastic public a glimpse of the adorable princess.

Both mother and baby turned up in white, with Princess Charlotte wearing a dreamy replica of the lace and satin christening gown made for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter in 1841. Prince George on the other hand wore a pair of red shorts and a white embroidered shirt. Those with a keen eye will remember a similar outfit worn by Prince William when he was a little tot. To add to the already heart-warming event, curious George was caught peeping into his sister's pram (don't we all wish we had doting siblings?).
