In an historic ceremony which brought together four generations of the Royal Family, the three-month-old future king was christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury in the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace yesterday.
Dressed in a handmade replica of Queen Victoria’s daughter’s christening robe, George bore a striking resemblance to his father at a similar age.

As they walked out it was Kate’s turn to hold baby George, who appeared to be slightly dozing under the watchful eye of their part-time nanny, Jessie Webb.
Afterwards there was just enough time for tea and a slice of christening cake (in line with tradition, a tier of the couple’s wedding cake from 2011) at neighbouring Clarence House before the Queen had to get back to business at Buckingham Palace.
Today an historic set of photographs taken at that tea will be released to the public.
The photographs will, for the first time in more than a century, show a monarch and three living heirs: Prince Charles, 64, Prince William, 31 and George.
The last occasion such a picture was taken was in 1894 when Queen Victoria was photographed with her son Edward VII, grandson George V and great grandson Edward VIII.

WILLIAM AND KATE'S 22 GUESTS TO ENJOY TEA AND WEDDING CAKE''
The centrepiece was the extraordinary cake that William and Kate enjoyed at their wedding reception.
On April 29, 2011, Prince William and his new wife cut the first slice of the magnificent eight-tiered cake, but one of the tiers was saved for yesterday. Maker Fiona Cairns spent five weeks working on it along with her large team.
Kate had asked for the Joseph Lambeth technique of cake decoration, where intricate piping is used to make three dimensional scroll work, leaves, flowers and other adornments.
