Prince George William and Kate

Photos from Prince George's christening

All eyes were on three-month-old Prince George this Wednesday as he made his second public appearance to be christened in front of family and friends.

The Duchess of Cambridge looked gorgeous in a cream-coloured ruffled Alexander McQueen dress and a Jane Taylor fascinator.

But it was His Royal Highness who stole the spotlight. Before entering the ceremony, Will and Kate proudly showed off the tiny royal. Wearing a delicate christening gown (an exact replica of the one worn 172 years ago by Queen Victoria's first daughter), Prince George sure looked the part of a future King.

While many royal christenings take place at Buckingham Palace, Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge broke tradition by having Georgie baptized in a private 45-minute ceremony at Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace.

Guests included Queen Elizabeth II, her husband Prince Philip, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, and of course, proud aunt and uncle Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton. Prince George's seven godparents were also likely in attendance.
