After Prince George’s christening, guests will continue the celebration with a private reception.
According to an official press release distributed on Oct. 23 by Kensington Palace:
Following the service, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall will give a private tea in Clarence House. Guests will be served slices of christening cake, which is a tier taken from The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding cake.
The 8-tier cake was designed by Fiona Cairns, and was made from 17 individual fruit cakes, topped with cream and white icing.
