Britain’s Princess Charlotte to be christened next month

LONDON (AP) — Princess Charlotte, the newborn daughter Britain’s Prince William and his wife, Kate, will be christened in a private ceremony next month.

The ceremony is set for July 5 at St. Mary Magdalene Church on Queen Elizabeth II’s sprawling Sandringham estate in Norfolk, on England’s eastern coast.

Kensington Palace said in a short statement on Friday that Charlotte will be christened by Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Charlotte, the couple’s second child and fourth in line to the throne, was born in London on May 2.

William and Kate left London and traveled north shortly after the birth to their mansion in Sandringham, where they are expected to be based for the next few years.
