The Royal Christening Gown Has a Long History

The royal Christening gown has a 178 year history.

??Astounding that anything worn by a baby for any length of time could last that long.????Well, the one used today is a replica, but still, two gowns in 178 years is remarkable.????The original Honiton Christening gown was commissioned by Queen Victoria for her daughter Victoria, and then worn by all nine of her royal children.

It was nicknamed Honiton after the lace that wasy used.????According to Town and Country, that silk gown with lace overlay was worn by 62 royal babies including Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince Harry before 2004 when the original gown was replaced with an exact replica.

????Silk again.

Royal babies must never drool or spit up.????Now Royal babies wear the replica, and that even includes Zara Tindall’s daughter’s recent christening and will include Prince Harry and Meghan’s royal baby.????It’s kind of amazing that a baby with an American mother will wear the gown...I wonder what Queen Victoria would say to that!????????????????
