Prince George's Christening Set for October


Kate Middleton, Prince William


Kensington Palace has released a statement to announce that Prince William and Kate Middleton's son Prince George will be christened at The Chapel Royal, St. James' Palace.

Prince George's christening date has been set for next month. A statement released on Friday, September 27 by Kensington Palace reads, "Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to announce the christening of Prince George will take place on Wednesday, 23rd October at The Chapel Royal, St. James's Palace."

"Prince George will be christened by The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby," the palace adds. According to Daily Mail, the couple chose Chapel Royal because it is "an historic, quite intimate chapel." A source explained, "It is something they have been thinking about for some time and they just very much liked personally."

Prince George is likely to wear a replica of Honiton lace gown which was worn by Queen Victoria's eldest daughter in 1841. The robe has been used by generation after generation of royal infants. The last royal baby who wore the robe was Prince Edward's daughter Lady Louise Windsor in 2004.

There were several names who were reported to be Prince George's six godparents. Prince William's best friend Thomas Van Straubenzee, his former private secretary Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton and ex-nanny Tiggy Legge-Bourke as well as Kate Middleton's sister Pippa, brother James and friends are in the running.

"Details with regard to godparents and guests will all be announced in due course," a source told E! News. "Close family and friends will, of course, be present," the source added.
