  • Short Summary

    Royal family attend the christening of Princess Pat's baby. Prince of Wales is godfather.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "Princess Pat's Baby. Prince of Wales acted as Godfather, and King, queen and many members of the Royal Family attend Christening ceremony."

    Chapel Royal, St. James's, London.

    VS Members of the royal family including King George V, Queen Mary and Prince of Wales alighting from coach. CU Prince of Wales.

    CU Nurse holding baby. VS Members of the royal family alighting from coach. MS Princess Pat (Lady Patricia Ramsay) alighting from large Daimler. MS Guests arriving by car.

    Family and friends are then seen leaving the Chapel.

    Seems that the baby is named Alexander Arthur Alfonso David Ramsay.

    Note: seems that some shots for this story have been transferred twice on Digibeta. Shots seem to be in incorrect order and duplicated. An awful lot of coming and going is the result!
