Today, Kensington Palace announced that Princess Charlotte’s christening will take place at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham on July 5th. This is the same place of worship Her Majesty attends while staying at her Sandringham estate, and the royal family gathers here for Christmas service here every year.
