The christening took place in St. Mary Magdalene Church, a 16th-century chapel long frequented by the royal family, in Sandringham, Norfolk. William's late mother Princess Diana was christened there in 1961. Water from the River Jordan was used during the baptism, as it was during George's 2013 christening, which took place in London.
