Royal Baby Update! Prince George’s Christening Plans

Tomorrow, the royal family will gather for Prince George’s christening ceremony and we’ve got a few more updates to share beforehand…

The M&B office can’t wait until tomorrow – the chance to catch another glimpse of baby George at his christening.

Kensington Palace has revealed today that the event’s photographer will be Jason Bell, a contemporary choice who Kate and Wills decided on. Jason is a well-established portrait photographer with his work appearing in Vogue and Vanity Fair, among other places. He’ll be photographing the family at Clarence House, following the service.

The ceremony is taking place at Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace, at 3pm and understandably it’s a private affair with a small number of friends and family as the guests, meaning that we won’t be able to respond to the ‘What did Kate wear?!’ questions until the official photographs are released. The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby will conduct the service.

Prince George himself is thought to be wearing a remake of the classic royal family silk christening gown, after the original one was laid down to rest in 2004 after 167 years of use. But perhaps Kate and Wills will break with tradition and dress George in one of these high street options.

So far, we’ve only had two sightings of Kate and Wills’ son – first on the steps of the Lindo Wing a day after he was born and secondly in the official family photographs taken by Michael Middleton – and we can’t wait for a third chance to coo over him.
