Princess Charlotte to Be Christened in Church Where Princess Diana Was Baptized

Charlotte is the second child of Duchess Kate and Prince William.

— -- The newest member of Britain’s royal family, 1-month-old Princess Charlotte, will be christened in a private ceremony next month, royal officials said today.

In choosing St. Mary Magdalene Church for Charlotte’s christening, Prince William and Kate are making a poignant nod to William's mother, as they did when they selected their daughter's name, Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

St. Mary Magdalene Church is the parish church of the Queen on the Sandringham Estate and is where the royal family spends Christmas every year.

Prince George, who will turn 2 less than three weeks after Charlotte's christening, was christened as a 3-month-old at St. James’s Palace in London. Only immediate family, godparents and their spouses were in attendance.

Princess Charlotte, the fourth-in-line to the British throne, was born May 2 at St. Mary’s Hospital in London.
