All hail the future king!
At just 3 months old, Prince George hit all his royal marks in a series of intimate photos shot just after his christening on Oct. 23. But the little heir also has no trouble making himself heard.
His maternal grandmother, Carole Middleton, "did say he has a nice pair of bellows on him – a good set of lungs!" Middleton family friend Martin Fidler tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story.

A lot of doting parents have their baby's handprints as a keepsake, but Pippa Middleton has reportedly gone one step further – she's had her nephew Prince George's hands and feet cast in silver.
The Daily Mail reports that the party planner arranged to have the sculptures made as a christening gift for the 3-month-old and his parents, Prince William and her sister, Kate.
According to Wrightson and Platt, the company that makes the sculptures, it takes 30 seconds to make the mold by placing the baby's feet in a jelly-like mixture of water and a seaweed-based powder (which is a long time to stop a newborn from wriggling around).

Call it The George Effect. The newly christened prince is following in his mother Kate's footsteps and causing items to sell out in stores.
Every time Kate wears a Zara or Topshop dress, fans rush to buy their very own, and the 3-month old prince is causing a similar frenzy in the princess's hometown of Bucklebury.
Middleton family friend Lynda Tillotson, who runs L Interiors, tells PEOPLE she's almost sold out of a commemorative mug she created to mark the birth of the royal heir.

The joy of succession.
On Thursday, the Palace released four official portraits showcasing the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their son, Prince George, taken after the young royal was christened on Wednesday.
In one of the historic photographs taken by celebrity photographer Jason Bell Queen Elizabeth sits with three generations of heirs – the Queen, 87, poses with son Prince Charles, 64, grandson Prince William, 31, and 3-month-old Prince George. The image pays homage to a photograph taken in 1894 of Queen Victoria with her four living immediate heirs at the christening of then Prince Edward Albert of York.

When Time visited Queen Elizabeth's Balmoral estate in preparation for its new cover story on Prince Charles, writer Catherine Mayer spotted a smart Silver Cross pram – what Americans call a baby carriage – with a navy blue canopy and cover, standing in a hallway by the side door.
That was not the only passing of traditions that the magazine reported.
