The christening of Prince George

The christening of Prince George took place today at The Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace, as announced before.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have asked the following people to be Godparents to Prince George:

Mr Oliver Baker (Oliver Baker attended the University of St Andrews with The Duke and Duchess)

Mrs David Jardine-Paterson (Emilia Jardine-Paterson attended Marlborough College with The Duchess)

Earl Grosvenor (Hugh) (Earl Grosvenor is the son of The Duke of Westminster)

Mr Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton (Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton served as Private Secretary to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry from 2005-2012 and continues to serve part-time as Principal Private Secretary and Equerry)

The Hon Mrs Michael Samuel (Julia Samuel was a close friend of The Princess of Wales)

Mrs Michael Tindall (Zara Tindall is The Duke of Cambridge’s cousin)

Mr William van Cutsem (William van Cutsem is a childhood friend of The Duke of Cambridge)

Prince Charles wore the precious silk and lace gown when he was baptised at Buckingham Palace in December 1948.

Prince William himself wore the original Victoria gown when he was christened on August 4, 1982.

Prince George wore the hand made replica of the Royal Christening Robe. The original dress, created for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter Victoria, Princess Royal in 1841, was worn by more than 60 royal babies, including Prince William himself. However it is now said to be incredibly fragile. A replica by the Queen's dressmaker Angela Kelly was first worn by James, Viscount Severn, in 2008.

The Lily Font and water from the River Jordan was used during the baptism.

Following the service, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall gave a private tea in Clarence House. Guests were served slices of christening cake, which is a tier taken from The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding cake.
