In the royal family how to do Christening..?

Christenings in the royal family have traditionally been private occasions, attended by family, godparents and close friends.


The Royal Christening Robe of Queen Elizabeth I 
Most members of the royal family have worn the same ancient christening gown/royal Christening robe made for Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter, princess Victoria since 1841. This gown is made from Fine Honiton lace lined with white satin. It has been preserved up to now.The font used in the royal baptism is that the princess Victoria used.

In 1894 the robe was given by Queen Victoria to the Duchess of York (later Queen Mary), all of whose children were christened in it. In the next generation it was worn by the children of King George VI, Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester, and of Prince George, Duke of Kent.
