Before going into the christening, which took place at the Royal Chapel at St James" Church in London on Sunday, Charlotte shook hands with the Archbishop of Canterbury, looking rather proud of herself when her dad told her "well done'.

PRINCESS Charlotte issued a cheeky remark to royal snappers as she stole the show for the second time today at Prince Louis' christening.

Following the service, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge held a private tea at Clarence House where guests were served slices of cake from a tier of Kate and William's wedding cake.

The robe, which was handmade by Angela Kelly, the Queen's personal dressmaker, is a replica of the original christening gown designed for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter.

Guests included Prince Charles and his wife Camilla as well as Prince Harry and his new wife Meghan Markle.

It was a family affair for the Middletons, who all stepped out on Monday afternoon to celebrate Prince Louis' christening.
