Royal christening gown

A royal christening gown is an item of baptismal clothing used by a royal family at family christenings. Among those presently using such a gown are the royal families of the United Kingdom, Denmark, the Netherlands, Spain, and Sweden. In most of these families, the tradition goes back over a century: as of 2019, the Swedish gown has been in service for 113 years, the Dutch gown for 139 years, and the Danish gown for 149 years; the current British gown (a replica of the one used for 163 years) has been in use since 2008. The Spanish gown has been in use for 81 years.

Is the dress the same as Princess Victoria of Savoy's christening?

There are also differences in presentation gowns and christening gowns.

What’s the difference between a presentation and a christening? I know what a christening is, but what’s a presentation?

The first 'presentation' - which took place for each of the three princesses - was on the day of birth (or the day after); so the then crown prince introduced his first/second/third daughter to the world almost as soon as they were born.

The second picture is an official picture that was released a little while later (again in a big white baby gown); and the third is the actual christening. All are similar type gowns but for different occasions.

The 'introduction' in such a gown seems to be a Dutch tradition, see for example this picture of prince Claus with his eldest son prince Willem-Alexander; the official photograph and his christening.

And the generation before that: introduction (scroll down to final picture), official photo vs christening.
