5 Things to Watch at Princess Charlotte's Christening

Prince William and Princess Kate's daughter will be christened today.

The christening for the fourth-in-line to the British throne will be a family affair with unique details.

Here are five things to watch at the royal celebration:

1. Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana

2. The Godparents

Prince William and Princess Kate announced Princess Charlotte's five godparents this weekend: Kate's cousin Adam Middleton, William's cousin The Hon. Laura Fellowes, and three of the couple's friends, Thomas van Straubenzee, Sophie Carter and James Meade.

5. Connection to Princess Diana

The church where Princess Charlotte will be christened, St. Mary Magdalene Church, is the same church where her late grandmother, Princess Diana, was baptized in 1961. 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. The church is located on the Queen's Sandringham Estate. Diana was born at Park House at Sandringham and spent time there as a young child.
