After the service the christening party walked the short distance across a courtyard to Clarence House for a private tea, where they were offered slices of one of the three top tiers of the Duke and Duchess’s wedding cake, saved for the occasion.

Kate once again chose London fashion label Alexander McQueen for the occasion. She wore the designer for both George and Charlotte’s big days.

The bespoke coat dress featured a V-neckline, and little puff sleeves. Unfortunately, we were not able to see any other details of her frock.

Accessories included, a matching, bespoke Jane Taylor headpiece piece that reminded me of an alice band embellished with pearl beads and silk flowers, her Jimmy Choo Romy 100 pumps in Nude ($650), and a pair of gorgeous Cavolfiore Pearl Studs by Cassandra Goad (available to order from £4360).
