Prince George has charmed the public once again after waving and smiling to the waiting crowds who had gathered outside the church where his sister is due to be christened this afternoon.

The toddler, who is nearly two, held his father Prince William's hand as the Royal family made their way up the path to the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham where Princess Charlotte will be christened.

Prince George was dressed in red shorts and a white shirt with red embroidery for the princess' christening while the nine week-old guest of honour was dressed in an elaborate cream lace and satin royal christening gown.
