Royals The Countess of Wessex

The Earl and Countess of Wessex Christen Baby James

The Earl and Countess of Wessex show off their beautiful son, James Alexander Philip Theo yesterday in Windsor Castle’s private chapel.

Edward and Sophie beamed with pride as four-month-old James was baptised, the first male grandchild for the Queen since Harry was born 23 years ago.

James became the first Royal baby to wear a hand-made christening gown commissioned by the Queen.

The gown, made by the Queen’s dresser Angela Kelly and Buckingham Palace’s team of dressmakers, is a replica of one of Queen Victoria’s daughters’ christening gowns which was worn at subsequent Royal christenings, including that of James’s four-year-old sister Louise, but has now been preserved.

James is the Queen’s eighth grandchild and one observer said:

“His sister Lady Louise absolutely dotes on her little brother.

“She kisses him and cuddles him and is a real little mother to him. It’s lovely.”
