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.

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.

Prince George's Christening: Who's Who & What's What

A big day for little Prince George.

Lightly jiggled in his father's arms, the 3-month-old looked slightly perplexed at the attention as his parents, Prince William and Kate, greeted clergy at the doors of the baby's special christening service.

Led by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the 35-minute, private ceremony started at 3 p.m. London time (10 a.m. ET) at the Chapel Royal in St. James's Palace.

Shortly after her arrival with Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth spoke with William and Kate, with smiles all around. Kate – in an Alexander McQueen outfit and nude-and-ivory Jane Taylor hat – greeted George's great-grandfather with a kiss on both cheeks and a small curtsy.

As if to underscore the continuity of the monarchy, there, too, at the chapel door were Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

The birth of Prince George is being marked in many ways, and now jewelry is on the list.

The collection's designer, Claudia Bradby, has worked with the Duchess of Cambridge before and draws her inspiration from the Middleton crest, which features three acorns to represent their three children – Kate, Pippa and James.

"Mighty oaks from little acorns grow – that's the saying and the sentiment behind it," Bradby tells PEOPLE, adding: "Plus, it has some relevance to them as a couple because the inspiration for the design was drawn from her own family crest."

Prince George's Life Will Be a 'Carbon Copy' of How Diana Raised William & Harry

In the safe, easy-going environment of the Middletons' Bucklebury home, Prince William, Kate and Prince George are settling into their new life as a family.

But as the demands of royal life inevitably take over, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will try to strike a balance between creating a relaxed upbringing with that befitting the status of a prince.

As they raise "Georgie" – as grandpa Prince Charles has dubbed him – the young couple will take guidance from how the late Princess Diana managed things, sources say.

"It'll be a carbon copy of how William and Harry were brought up, because of their mother," a friend tells PEOPLE. "However she's painted, her greatest legacy is her sons. The way they've been brought up and the way she taught them to think for themselves and to lead a normal life."
