Kensington Palace has confirmed that the guests will be served slices of Christening cake at the private tea. Prince William and Catherine Middleton managed to keep enough tiers save for George, Charlotte and Louis. Their cake had eight tiers and was made of 17 fruitcakes, dressed in alcohol- which acts as the natural preservative. At the time, it was reported that the creators took five weeks to make and was decorated with 900 individually iced flowers and leaves.
Along with the tradition of serving their wedding cake at the Christening, Kate and William also dressed the two-month-old Louis in the same christening gowns worn by his siblings. The garment which the new member of the royal family will wear is a replica of the dress that Queen Victoria commissioned for her first-born child, her daughter Victoria Adelaide Mary Louisa back in 1841. Over the period, the beautiful white silk dress was worn by all the royal babies. Call it , but these are the traditions of the Royal which are very well marked by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
