It's the same spot that Prince George had his big day - although Princess Charlotte's was at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham.

Princess Charlotte is being christened in the church if St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham, Norfolk, where Princess Diana was also christened.

The third son of Prince William and his wife Kate, Duchess of Cambridge was born April 23 and is fifth in line to the throne.
