Like most of the world, you were probably charmed by the photographs of Prince Louis's recent baptism. His elegant, sweeping outfit pretty much stole the show. If you're in the market for a blessing outfit, then these christening outfits inspired by the royals are a good place to start. Because chances are high that the gown Prince Louis wore is not going to be for sale anytime soon.
In fact, Prince Louis's christening gown has a long and storied history, going all the way back to the ultimate trendsetter herself, Queen Victoria. The Honiton christening gown, which was also worn by siblings George and Charlotte, is a replica of the christening gown Queen Victoria commissioned for her first born child, according to Town & Country. The Queen clearly had an eye for style, because that very gown had a long line of service. Over the course of 163 years, the dress outfitted 62 royal infants, as further noted by Town & Country. In other words, it's a famous and long-loved style.
Although you won't get to borrow the actual Honiton christening gown anytime soon, there are plenty of similar styles available for sale. These gowns will look just as beautiful on your own little kiddo's big day.
