Hurrah! It’s time for our favourite Royal Couple to celebrate one of the happiest baby milestones...
Kensington Palace have announced today that Royal bundle of joy George Alexander Louis of Cambridge is ready to to be dipped in the font. The ceremony will take place on 23rd October at The Chapel Royal in beautiful St James’s Palace.
Only close friends and family are expected to attend the private service, which be officiated by The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby. As for the Godparents we're really hoping naughty Harry makes the cut.
And just when you thought this little family couldn’t get any more perfect Kate Middleton, Wills and baby George have announced today they have sealed the deal with a family crest.
The conjugal coat of arms is made up of the Middleton family coat of arms (granted to the family ahead of their marriage in 2011) joined together with Wills’ existing crest granted to him by the Queen on his eighteenth birthday.
The crest wasn’t always a dead cert, though. First it was passed before the beady eye of HRH who was required to give the marriage her seal of approval giving it the go ahead last year (and you thought your in-laws were scary). Luckily, the crest got the thumbs up, completing an idyllic year for the couple, who welcomed gorgeous baby George back in July.
Baby George does not yet feature on the shield, but the design does feature a touching memorial to Princess Diana in the form of a Spencer family shell.
Your child’s baptism, christening or naming day is one of the first milestone events whether they’re a few months old or pushing five.
What they’ll wear is important - you’ll probably want to keep it afterwards as a momento of a special day. If you haven’t got a huge budget, hit the high street where you’ll find a great range for boys and girls of all ages plus lots of lovely accessories too. These are our favourites
