Prince George’s Christening!

This afternoon, Prince George showed his sweet rounded baby face for the first time since his departure from St. Mary’s Hospital nearly three months ago. The constant snapping of photos by the surrounding paparazzi didn’t even phase Britain’s youngest royal. The future king waved and smiled to his family and the camera as his father held him and his mother beamed with happiness. Kate and Wills were the picture of pure joy as they stood outside the chapel, waiting for the special ceremony to begin.
