Images have been released of the 'Royal font' which will be used to christen Princess Charlotte of Cambridge later today.
Royal babies are christened using the ornate 'lily font' which is usually on show as part of the Crown Jewels at the Tower of London.
The font was specially commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1840.
The water being used for the christening is holy water taken from the River Jordan, where it is said Jesus was baptised by John the Baptist.
The christening on the Sandringham Estate is expected to attract large crowds of people hoping to catch a glimpse of the Royal family.
It will be the first time that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be seen out with both of their children.
