There are a number of traditions Kate Middleton has to follow when being pregnant and afterwards. For example, she isn’t allowed to give birth at home. What is more, as a rule, the baby’s gender isn’t revealed until he or she is born.


The christening robe is another tradition to follow. Babies are christened in a replica of the robe that has been used since 1841 – the original robe made of fine lace and white satin. The first baby to be christened in it was Queen Victoria's eldest daughter.
