Victorian Christening Gown WONT be Worn By Prince Goerge

Victorian Christening Gown made by Scottish Coalminer's daughter that has graced 60 royal babies wont be worn by Prince George on Wednesday.

George will wear replica of gown created by seamstress Janet Sutherland.

Dress has been worn by 60 royals, including William, but now too fragile to use. A replica was however made by Queen's dressmaker Angela Kelly and Prince George will be third royal baby to wear new gown.

Prince William and Kate are to throw informal party before Wednesday's christening.

Seamstress Janet Sutherland has been uncovered as the dressmaker who created the original lace and satin gown worn by more than 60 royal babies, including Prince William.

The dress, created for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Victoria, Princess Royal in 1841, was worn by every British mornach since Edward VII, and yet little was known about the woman who created the famous item of clothing until now.

The tiny white gown, last worn by Lady Louise Windsor, daughter of the Earl and Countess of Wessex, in 2004 is now said to be incredibly fragile.

A replica of the frock was made by the Queen's dressmaker Angela Kelly and was first worn by Lady Louis younger brother, James, Viscount Serven, 2008.

The replica retains the same features of the original, including the lengthy skirt and elaborate collar and bow.

Prince George will wear the newer version of the gown for his christening at the Chapel Royal at St James Palace on Wednesday.

His parents, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have been determined that the service will be a private and intimate gathering of family and friends, with just 60 guests to be in attendance.

The baptism will be presided over by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby.

The Chapel Royal is a particular poignant choice of venue for the couple as it was there that the coffin of Princess Diana was laid before her funeral in 1997.
