HOMEWORK

For any parents who have two children under two, this could have been a difficult moment, especially when you know that the world is watching. This is the first time that we have seen that Duke and Duchess out in public with their two children. Prince George at times a little distracted, but with encouragement from dad, he kept on walking. Eventually, we then got a glimpse of Princess Charlotte bundled in her pram, dressed in the first of what will, no doubt, be many elaborate gowns to come.

Heading into the same church on the Sandringham estate, where the royal family goes for Christmas, the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla and the Middleton’s all here to share the moments.

Some in the crowds started arriving as early as Saturday night to get the best spots.

“Such is the interest in the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. It’s not surprising to see that hundreds of people have turned out for the christening here in Norfolk. The fact that the area in front of the church has been opened to the public is a way of William and Kate saying thank you to the public for all of their support since their daughter was born.”

But also a reflection on how important Norfolk has become as a family home.

“They've got enough grounds where they can walk, and walk as a family and do things with the invasion of the public.”

The private 45 minute-service reflected on family tradition. Prince William’s mother Princess Diana was christened here. And Princess Charlotte was baptized by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, using the Lily Font, a feature of royal christening since 1841. But the choice of godparents has surprised some. No royals or siblings, William and Kate instead opting for friends, Sophie Carter, James Meade and Thomas van Straubenzee, along with Kate’s cousin Adam Middleton and William’s first cousin Laura Fellows, who was Princess Diana’s niece.

With the service over, a protective Prince George checked up on his little sister. He needn’t have worried with no sign of any tears from Princess Charlotte as they walked back to Sandringham house for a cup of tea and some christening cake after a big day for the latest member of the family.
