What an adorable little butterball she is!

Comparisons to what Kate and William did at their son's christening have nothing to do with Maud's christening. Riles me that no one can have center stage without bringing the Cambridges into it. Bah!

Well said, it gets my goat as well. Other irritant is that the Christening robe (not dress) was "recycled".
No it wasnt, it is tradition.

I can imagine that Lady Gabriella Windsor would be one of them, but I doubt it will get announced.

I did wonder if the Windsors realised they needed one or even had one. I say that cos they live in America and its the 1st g'child and maybe it was that simple.

I also think its a hire car.
The grand parents of the baby live here. The parents grew up here, and have only lived in the US for a few years. IMO, it is quite irresponsible and there really is no excuse for them to not be using a car seat.

I was stunned to see that Maud was not in a car seat. The christening robe could have been put on after they arrived if they were concerned about it being wrinkled.

They currently live in California which has some of the strictest car seat laws in the country.

Totally agree, it's a shame that Maud and her parents haven't been allowed to enjoy such a special moment without such comparisons being made.

As for the comments in various articles etc about them "reusing" or "recycling" the christening gown, I was christened in the very same gown that my grandfather had been..it's this little thing called tradition, funny enough the Royal family and the Monarchy as a whole are steeped in it so it would look odd if she hadn't worn that christening set.

I thought she looked quite bonny in the whole thing.

It would be nice if the media would stop these comparisons, but I don't see it happening anytime soon.

By doing comparisons, they'e drawing more people to read their articles that normally wouldn't give it a second glance. Right now as far as the media and the monarchy are concerned, its the Cambridges that are their golden goose egg.

I'm sure the Windsor family had a very special time at their daughter's christening and these comparisons weren't in their minds at all.

Thanks for the article!
It is great that Lady Gabriella will spend the upcoming Christmas with her parents.
The Siamese cat is adorable. I too like Mozart very much.

James was the first royal baby to wear the new gown, followed by Savannah and Isla Phillips and Prince George, Rather surprised Maud also wore it because none of the grandchildren of the duke of Kent (Prince Michael's older brother) were baptized wearing the original gown, although Lord St. Andrews, lady Helen and Lord Nicholas all wore the original gown as did Frederick and Ella.

Maud is a beautiful baby and she looked bonny in her christening bonnet.

Looking at the photo's in this thread it would appear that none of the adults bothered to wear a seat belt while traveling in the back of their respective cars, not good.

I didn't expect that lord Freddie Windsor is a Vice President of one of JP Morgan banks, it was mentioned that he is a fynancial analyst.

But this article introduces new information.

Thanks for the update!
Lady Frederic should either use a professional makeup artist or come makeup-free. On a different note, I did not know that Malcolm McDowell is British.
