Nearly 3 months to the date after his July 22 birth, Prince George will be receiving the sacrament of baptism on Oct. 23, 2013.
His parents Kate Middleton and Prince William selected The Chapel Royal room as the baptism site, breaking from royal tradition. Most royal baptisms have taken place in the Music Room at Buckingham palace. Prince William was baptized there, but Will and Kate wanted a more intimate and personal location for George’s ceremony.
The Chapel room holds special importance to the royal family, since Will’s late mother, Princess Diana, lay in wait there before her 1997 funeral. Now the room will have happy memories to look back on, as it will be the site of George’s special sacrament.
Prince George’s Christening Guests
Prince George’s christening is a very intimate affair — only a select group of the family’s closest friends and family will be participating in the ceremony. In fact, only 22 people made the official guest list, which includes Prince George’s seven godparents, whose names were revealed by the Palace just hours before the ceremony on Oct. 23.
