Prince William and Kate Middleton Take Prince George to Christening, Name Seven Godparents

Prince George made his first royal appearance in three months today, October 23 — as proud parents Prince William and Kate Middleton carried him into St. James Palace in London for his christening.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were all smiles as they showed off the little prince outside the Chapel Royal — the baby dressed in a lace and satin christening gown that's a replica of one worn by every royal baby since 1841.

This isn't any ordinary baptism, though, since George is in line to become king and thus supreme governor of the Church of England.

CNN reports that the ceremony's attendees included George's great-grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip; grandfather Prince Charles; grandparents Carole and Michael Middleton; uncles Prince Harry and James Middleton; and aunt Pippa Middleton.

Additionally, William and Catherine named seven godparents for George prior to the christening, a mix of friends and family — Zara Tindall, Oliver Baker, Emilia Jardine-Paterson, William van Cutsem, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, Julia Samuel, and Earl Grosvenor.

Following the ceremony, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, will host a tea at Clarence House and serve christening cake — i.e. a tier of Kate and William's wedding cake, which is bound to be delicious, even two years later.

So nice to see you again, your Royal Cuteness!
