Prince George will use replica Christening gown

August 1, 2013

According to Hello Magazine:

For 167 years, Britain’s royal babies wore a one-of-a-kind, custom-made, hand-me down Christening gown.

…over 30 newborns including Prince William, Prince Charles and the Queen, have all worn the same Honiton lace and white satin gown…

Prince George, however, will wear a new form of the family heirloom to celebrate this historic and religious rite of passage.
