These babies might not be in line to the throne, but they certainly look as royal as the young Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The tots dressed to impress at a royal baby party, held at Barking Methodist Church, to mark the birth of the new princess this month.

Crowns and princess dresses were the order of the day, with the British flag proudly displayed and waved by the young guests.

Monday’s event was put on as part of the baby sensory class which takes place each week at the church in London Road.

It was organised by Essie Abdullah, who said: “Parents made a huge effort to dress their babies up and make little crowns especially for the occasion.

“Our hall was transformed into our own baby sensory kingdom with our baby princes and princesses enjoying the music making, singing, sensory experiences and exploratory play.”

She added that the event was organised as a response to other parties being organised at sensory classes across the country to mark the occasion.

Essie said: “I thought it a wonderful opportunity for our parents and babies in Barking to take part in something really special.”
