Intimate christening for Britain's future King George

Intimate christening for Britain's future King George
Text size Aa Aa

In an intimate gathering with just close relatives and friends, Britain’s Royal baby George has been christened.

The intimate affair took place in the Chapel Royal in St James Palace in London. The future King of England wore a white satin robe – a replica of one made in 1841 for the christening of Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter.

Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, performed the ceremony and officially welcomed baby George into the Church of England.

His parents Kate and William are adamant to give their son as ‘normal’ a life as possible, out of the public eye. For this reason, they broke with family tradition and chose the Chapel Royal rather than Buckingham Palace for the special event.
