Prince George to wear replica of 172-year-old christening gown

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

Ever since Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, over 30 newborns including Prince William, Prince Charles and the Queen, have all worn the same Honiton lace and white satin gown to mark their entrance into the Church of England.

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

Following the baptism of Lady Louise Windsor in 2004, it was decided the ancient garment was too delicate to be used again. As a result, the Queen commissioned an exact replica of the 1841 christening gown to replace the original robe.
