Prince George christened

The christening of Prince George has taken place in the Chapel Royal at St. James´s Palace in London.

The prince, third in line to the throne, was baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
The christening was private, with only senior royals, four members of the Middleton family, the seven godparents and their spouses among the 22 guests. The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh attended the ceremony.

The duchess carried her newly christened son out of the chapel after the ceremony, and the guests then left for tea hosted by the Prince of Wales at Clarence House.

 Prince George, son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, was born in London on 22 July.
