The Earl Spencer's seventh child -- and first by his third wife, Canadian-born Karen Gordon -- was baptised yesterday at St. Mary's Church in Great Brington, Northamptonshire.
The baby, a daughter, was baptised Charlotte Diana. Members of the Spencer family were present for the ceremony. Lord Spencer's nephew, Prince William, did not attend the baptism.
Lord Spencer has three daughters and one son by his first wife, Victoria Lockwood, and a son and a daughter by his second wife, Caroline Freud.
[Should the Duchess of Cambridge give birth to a daughter, the infant princess will not be named Charlotte, even though it is a name currently not in use by the royal family.]
