Prince George's Christening Photos Are Here!
The official christening photographs of 3-month-old Prince George, heir to the British throne, have been released. Shot by photographer Jason Bell at the Clarence House following the service, one photo features Prince George wearing a handmade replica of the royal christening robe, Kate Middleton clad in a cream-colored dress by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, and Prince William in a navy-blue suit.
It also shows an event that has not been seen for 119 years – a reigning monarch shown with three generations of future kings. The Queen, 87, clearly relished the historic moment, smiling with her son Prince Charles, grandson William and great-grandson George.
It is the first time such a royal family portrait has been taken since 1894 - when Queen Victoria
was pictured with her son, later Edward VII, grandson, later George V,
and great-grandson, who became Edward VIII.
Another image shows Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George, sitting together. “That photo is a big deal — it's the first time since 1894 that a reigning British monarch is photographed with three generations of heirs,” royal expert Victoria Arbiter tells Yahoo Shine. The first image was taken during the christening of the future Edward VIII and included Queen Victoria, her son Edward VII, her grandson George V, and her great-grandson Edward VIII.
Two families smile together in this touching photograph to
celebrate Prince George’s christening.
The stunning pictures were taken at a tea party hosted by George’s proud grandad Prince Charles and his wife Camilla in the morning room at Clarence House, London.
