Credit: PA Wire Royal babies are usually christened in a replica of the intricate lace and satin christening gown made for Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter in 1841. The Earl and Countess of Wessex’s son Viscount Severn became the first royal baby to wear the new robe at his christening in 2008. It was made by the Queen’s dresser Angela Kelly and the team of dressmakers at Buckingham Palace, and features the same lengthy skirt and elaborate collars and bow as its predecessor. More top news

North Carolina Bride and Groom Zip Line Into Marriage
London Mayor Gets Stuck on Zip Line During Olympics Bushar, who earned the nickname “Tall Socks” for the knee-high socks she has worn since high school, sported a pair of red, orange, yellow, brown and blue knee-high socks under her white wedding gown, along with a pair of matching trail running shoes instead of the more traditional heels. Bushar and her husband, 37, had only been zip lining twice before but decided to do it at their wedding when they saw their venue of choice, Asheville’s Crowne Plaza Resort, had added a zip line course to its outdoor activities. “The ballroom overlooks the zip line course and while we were touring it, Ben looked out the window and said, ‘Can we zip line into our wedding?,'” Bushar recalled. “The hotel contact said, ‘We’d love for you to do that review if you want to,’ and we said, ‘Sure.'” Just like that, the couple’s “entertaining” wedding was born. On Saturday, the couple donned their wedding suit and gown, and their safety harnesses. The only hiccup came when Bushar’s gown “ballooned up like a parachute” and slowed her down, something that had not happened when the couple had rehearsed their arrival the day before.
