Kate Middleton and Prince William released a new official portrait from Prince George's christening today. The photos, taken by celebrity photographer Jason Bell, are the only pictures of the private family event that was sanctioned by Buckingham Palace. On Oct. 23, Kate and William christened Prince George at the Royal Chapel in St. James' Palace in London, but, aside from the 22 invited guests, no one got to see what went on inside the ceremony. However, there were plenty of photos of the royal christening that took place outside the chapel, with William and Kate, who wore an Alexander McQueen dress, taking turns holding George in his christening gown, which is a replica of the Royal Christening Robe that has been used since Queen Victoria's time. Guests included the Queen, Kate and William's parents and siblings, George's nanny, and the seven godparents, which included William's cousin, Zara Tindall.
Prince William and his brother, Prince Harry, popped up in Gayton, England, on Saturday to celebrate the wedding of their close friends Lady Laura Marsham and James Meade. The brothers were joined by Prince William's sister-in-law, Pippa Middleton, at the affair, which Kate Middleton was expected to attend as well. Prince William has had a busy week of appearances since he and Harry attended the funeral of their father's friend on Wednesday before joining in on the BGC Partners Charity Day in honour of the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks. Prince William also had a date night on Thursday with his wife at the Tusk Conservation Awards in London. Kate sparkled in a Jenny Packham gown for the occasion, which was her first big night out since giving birth to Prince George back in July.
