Duke William and Duchess Kate Middleton have confirmed details of the baptism ceremony for their son, George Alexander Louis; who is third in line to the throne and he was born on July 22 at St Mary's Hospital in London. The christening of the young prince has been eagerly awaited by people across the country and is sure to be followed by fans of the Royal Family across the globe.
Event: George Alexander Louis christening
When: Wednesday, October 23 at 3pm
Where: Chapel Royal at St James's Palace
Who: Attending the christening are Prince George's grandparents, Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Middletons, will be there to watch, The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and Prince Harry.
The christening service is private and expected to last about 45 minutes. Usually, royal baptism happened to be in Buckingham Palace as their tradition but at this time, it will be Chapel Royal at St James's Palace. The reason why William chose this place for it has sentimental memories with her mother, Princess Diana. There are expected six godparents for Prince George and only three of them have been officially announced. Fergus Boyd, a university friend and former flatmate of the Duke and Duchess will serve as godfather, as will Hugh van Cutsem whose daughter Grace was a bridesmaid at the royal wedding and Kate's childhood friend Emilia D'Erlanger. The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby will perform the christening. The full guest list has not been announced, although it is believed to be a relatively small gathering.
