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 William and Kate were nowhere in sight, but British high society still managed to snag itself a royal and a Middleton Saturday night.
Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton were on hand to attend the splashy Boodles Boxing Ball at London's Grosvenor House Hotel.
The annual charity gala, which is now in its fourth year, benefits a foundation for terminally ill children and a trust for injured soldiers.

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."

Now that Prince George is here (after a long wait), the next question is: who will Prince William and Kate choose to be their son's godparents?
Preparations are already underway for the future king of England's christening, which is set to take place in the fall, but there's a lot of speculation over who the newborn's six godparents will be – the royal family traditionally chooses three men and three women.
According to British betting firm Ladbrokes, William's brother, Prince Harry, and Kate's sister, Pippa Middleton, are the firm favorites, but the list of other contenders even includes soccer star David Beckham (at 16/1 odds)!

A beloved sister – and now, a doting aunt.
Pippa Middleton, aka Auntie Pippa, is thrilled at the arrival of her nephew, Prince George, and has already been helping sister Kate in her early days of motherhood.
Pippa, 29, says she's "very excited about my sister's baby" and "so happy to be an aunt, as I love kids," a source close to the Middletons tells PEOPLE.

After a busy Wednesday that included a visit from his paternal great-grandmother, the Queen, and a road trip to the Bucklebury home of his maternal grandparents, the Middletons, William and Kate's new arrival can now focus on his next official duty: becoming the center of attention for his parents.
"There'll be a little bit of time when they get to know the baby. A little bit of downtime," an aide tells PEOPLE.
But the new mom and dad aren't facing their new roles alone – Pippa Middleton and boyfriend Nico Jackson have already been to Kensington Palace to help take care of the newborn and help the Duke and Duchess settle in, the aide adds.

For once, the much-photographed Kate and William managed to avoid the cameras, when the soon-to-be mother was driven to the hospital from Kensington Palace early Monday morning – though officials will not say if William was behind the wheel.
What they would say is that the royals arrived at St. Mary's Hospital before 6 a.m., while photographers on the scene say that the convoy was spotted around 5:30 a.m.
William and Kate and their entourage drove in two vehicles – a sedan and a town car – on side roads behind the hospital's private Lindo Wing before entering the building through the entrance to the Mary Stanford wing.
It's only two or three steps across a small sidewalk from the car to the hospital door.
