PRINCESS Charlotte issued a cheeky remark to royal snappers as she stole the show for the second time today at Prince Louis' christening.

BBC reports that Middleton was overheard saying Louis was "very relaxed and peaceful", and joked to the archbishop that she hopes "he stays like this".

Mrs. Robert Carter, Sophie, is one of Kate's closest friends and also shares the honor of being one of the few friends in William and Kate's inner circle who is godparent to two of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's children.

In the retro snaps, Kate can be seen wearing a gorgeous, white flowing christening gown, as various members of her family pose for photos. The number featured a Peter Pan collar and button fastenings through the front which she accessorised with a coordinating hat, and off-white Jimmy Choo heels.


Pelly, who attended the christening with his wife Lizzy, is perhaps best known for accompanying Princes William and Harry in livelier days on the London nightclub scene, and has previously said he is now "leaving it to the next generation".
