First Photos of Prince George’s Christening

Screen Shot 2013-10-23 at 10.02.16 AM

In the first photos of Prince George at his christening, Kate Middleton and Prince William look every bit the proud new parents at the royal event.

Posted via Twitter, the shots showcase the royal family enjoying the 45-minute ceremony at the Chapel Royal at St. James’s Palace in London, England on Wednesday (October 23).

Looking lovely in a cream-colored dress with ruffle detailing by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, the Duchess of Cambridge is photographed with her husband and their baby boy, who wore a replica of the Honiton lace and white satin gown created in 1841 by Janet Sutherland.

Only 22 guests were in attendance at the private ceremony – including the queen; Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh; Prince Charles; Camilla Parker Bowles, Duchess of Cornwall; Prince Harry; Carole Middleton; Michael Middleton; Pippa Middleton; and James Middleton.

After the christening, the group headed over to Clarence House for a reception hosted by Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. “It will just be a small champagne reception,” a source tells Us.

    Hopefully, with this kid, the equine curse from all the in-breeding among the royals will end. He is very normal looking.

      The problem of royal inbreeding was much more common in the physical appearance of those in family lines such as the Hapsburgs, a line of whom was wiped out by inbreeding. It never did affect British royalty nearly as much. At any rate, it wouldn’t have any effect on the appearance of Baby George. Royal inbreeding was done to secure monarchial lines and territories, something not as important nowadays in Europe.

    The Hapsburgs were terribly inbred and developed strange chins but other than that, there’s no inbreeding to speak of.
