Any flowers left at Princess Charlotte's christening on Sunday will be donated to East Anglia's Children's Hospices, who look after children with life threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire.
A spokesperson for EACH said, "East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) is delighted that flowers brought by well-wishers to the Christening of Princess Charlotte will be donated to the organisation.
"Should any well-wishers decide to bring flowers they will be collected up by EACH representatives and donated to the charity."
Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cambridge, became Royal Patron of EACH in January 2012 and has provided the charity with many great benefits, including raising awareness and understanding of the charity's services, boosting the media profile and inspiring people to raise funds.
Graham Butland, EACH Chief Executive, said: "We are very honoured the flowers for Princess Charlotte's Christening are being donated to EACH, which will be delivered to our hospices for our families, volunteers and staff to enjoy."
"Her Royal Highness has shown great dedication to the role of Royal Patron, raising awareness and understanding of our services and we're incredibly grateful for all the support the charity has received. Most recently this includes Her Royal Highness's attendance at the launch of the nook appeal, our vital fundraising campaign to raise funds to build a new children's hospice for Norfolk."
"We thank Their Royal Highnesses for their generosity on such a special occasion and wish The Duke and Duchess, Prince George and of course Princess Charlotte every health and happiness."
Princess Charlotte will be christened at The Church of St Mary Magdalene, Sandringham, on Sunday 5th July.
