The Lily Font

The Lily Font was designed by Prince Albert, the spouse of Queen Victoria.

Prince George will be baptised on Wednesday but royal christenings don't always go to plan... | Daily Mail Online

Awful to think that King George was to live for less than two years after this occasion.
The bond between Charles and his loving grandmother is clear even then. Thanks for posting this, CyrilVladisla.

You can see the ultimate happiness on King George VI's face not only at the christening of Princess Anne but also at the christening of Prince Charles.

Its wonderful to see George with his grandchildren. He was one proud grandfather

I love how close Charles and his Grandmum were

Love seeing those long gone, like Queen Mary. The pride in her face as she sits with her daughter in law, granddaughter and great granddaughter is so obvious. Sad to think how fewer members would be there for the next baptism. At least the Queen Mum not only lived to see all of her grandkids but also 9 of her 12 great-grandchildren. Sadly both she and Margaret died shortly before Margarita was born.

Neither of Elizabeth's maternal grandparents were alive to be great-grandparents to even Charles. Mary lived to see 3 great-grandchildren (Charles, Anne and David Lascelles)

Elizabeth, Duchess of York was the one responsible for the choice of clergyman for the christening of Princess Elizabeth. The Archbishop of Canterbury would have been the normal choice. Elizabeth, Duchess of York opted for Cosmo Lang. She declared that since she and Prince Albert were the York family and Cosmo Lang was the Archbishop of York, he was a better option.
