Lovely summary, Lady G. though unfortunately rather slapdash with the dates.
According to them Beatrice was christened in 1998, which makes her rather ...young. And Charles, Anne and a couple of others  were all conveniently baptised in a "dunk three get two more free" kind of ceremony in 1950... Wink

I'm going to give the DM a  Star for these photos many of which I've never seen before. Someone there actually took the time to research this and give the readers a glimpse of the royal world outside the BRF bubble. The photo of the late Duke of Kent at Prince Michael's christening was likely one of the last ones taken of him before his death.

It's so sad to see those photos of Prince Michael's christening, when you know what happened just weeks later.
