Prince George's Christening: Meet the Players

Oh, happy day! From the parents to the godparents, see who participated in the future king's baptism


Following a centuries-old tradition, HRH Prince George of Cambridge was baptized an Anglican in a private ceremony Wednesday at St. James's Palace, with proud parents Prince William and Duchess Catherine by his side. The 3-month-old baby, born July 22, wore a replica of the royal christening robe, made by Angela Kelly, dressmaker to the Queen. The original robe, of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was made in 1841 for the christening of Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Victoria, Princess Royal, and was subsequently worn for all royal christenings, including those of the Queen, her children and her grandchildren (with the exception of James, Viscount Severn).
