Princess Charlotte will be christened by The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby in a private ceremony at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham on Sunday July 5, Kensington Palace has said.

The Archbishop said he would be "an extraordinary honour and privilege" to conduct the ceremony.

I am delighted to be invited to conduct the baptism of HRH Princess Charlotte.

It will be an extraordinary honour and privilege to help welcome the Princess into the family of the church.

Along with her parents and all her family, I look forward to joining in this joyful day of celebration and thanksgiving
