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


One of Prince George's first visitors at Kensington Palace was his great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth, who was described as being "delighted" with the news of the newest Cambridge – the Queen spoke with William and Kate upon arriving at the chapel with her husband Prince Philip, another role model for the prince. In fact, the "Louis" part of George Alexander Louis (the prince's full name) is reportedly a tribute to Prince Philip, whose grandfather was Prince Louis Alexander of Battenberg. At the ceremony, Kate greeted George's great-grandfather with a kiss on both cheeks and a small curtsy.
