Previous christenings 

The christenings of William and Kate’s other two children were small, intimate affairs. Only 22 people attended the christening of Prince George, held on October 23, 2013.

He too was christened at Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace in London by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The small affair saw only senior royals, four members of the Middleton family, seven godparents and their spouses invited to the ceremony.

His godparents are Zara Tindall, Emilia Jardine-Paterson and Julia Samuel, as well as William van Cutsem, Hugh Grosvenor, the Duke of Westminster, Oliver Baker, and Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, a former private secretary to William.
