Second-hand pram

Unless you’ve had your head buried in the sand for the whole weekend, there’s no way you could have missed the furore over the royal christening. But there might be one or two details (and hilarious pictures) that might have passed you by. So let us fill you in…

First up, lets talk about Charlotte’s second-hand pram. Yes, that’s right – even the royals love a good hand-me-down. But this isn’t any old pram, it’s the same Millson Prince used by the Queen for Prince Edward and Prince Andrew. Of course, it’s been carefully refurbished since Queen Elizabeth used it in the early 1960s – and we reckon the traditional vintage style was perfect for the occasion.

Prince Charming

We know the royal christening was supposed to be all about Princess Charlotte. But we’re sorry to say, her older brother Prince Charming (yes we’ve renamed George following Sunday), might have stolen the limelight.

The adorable toddler – who turns 2 in just a couple of weeks – delighted everyone with his retro red shorts and cheeky behaviour. Just look at him waving at the crowds…

Family affair

Both sets of grandparents were close at hand to celebrate Charlotte’s christening. Prince William’s dad Charles and step-mum Camilla, and Kate’s parents Carole and Michael Middleton were right behind them.

The Queen is a great granny

We love this tender moment between Queen Elizabeth and Prince George. We wonder what they were talking about? The latest episode of Peppa Pig maybe?

Fans out in force

Around 3,500 fans camped out overnight to at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham to get a glimpse of 9-week-old Charlotte, and they weren’t disappointed.
