Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been photographed with their children.

William and his wife Catherine welcomed their daughter Princess Charlotte at the beginning of May and today marks her christening.

The two-month-old baby is being baptised at the church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham, with Catherine, William and their son Prince George photographed as they arrived.

The christening is a private event, with just 21 people there. Among them are William’s grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, her husband Prince Philip, William’s father Prince Charles and his wife Camilla. Catherine’s parents Michael and Carole were also there, along with her siblings Pippa and James. William’s brother Prince Harry couldn’t attend as he is travelling.

The family of four were photographed arriving at the church together. William opted for a navy blue suit, while Catherine was in a white dress with matching coat and hat. She pushed Charlotte in a traditional-style pram, with Prince George clutching his father’s hand. He was dressed in a simple white top and red shorts.

Earlier today Charlotte’s godparents were confirmed; Miss Sophie Carter, Mr James Meade, Mr Adam Middleton, The Hon. Laura Fellowes and Mr Thomas van Straubenzee. Adam is Catherine’s cousin, while Laura is the niece of Princess Diana, William’s late mother.

The christening will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Right Rev Justin Welby and afterwards guests will be invited to tea, including a piece of cake from William and Catherine’s wedding.
