Former Royal photographer Ian Pelham-Turner, who took the first official photographs of Prince William, says many things have changed since then.

The time afforded for photographs has roughly halved from seven minutes to just four, and the photographer is now allowed to address his Royal subjects directly:

He also told Daybreak that he had been expecting to see a photograph of the Queen holding Prince George, mirroring a family portrait of Queen Victoria with her three male heirs.

Queen in buoyant mood after Prince's christening

The Queen was in buoyant mood after Prince George's christening, telling guests at a Buckingham Palace reception how much she had enjoyed the event.

She greeted the Bishop of London The Right Reverend Richard Chartres - who had been at the St James's Palace service earlier today - with a warm smile.

The Queen, wearing a metallic blue and taupe dress with matching jacket by Angela Kelly, gave a gesture of mock surprise as she told him: "I haven't seen you for such a long time."

Discussing the christening, she added: "It was very nice though, wasn't it?"

The Bishop also spoke to the Duke of Edinburgh about George's behaviour during his special day, commenting: "Ah, he behaved!"

He was one of the guests at the reception for The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust, of which he is patron.

Others in attendance included former Prime Minister Sir John Major, who is chairman of the board of trustees, and Secretary of State for International Development Justine Greening.

Cabinet gives gift of toy box to Prince George

The Cabinet's christening gift to Prince George is a hand-crafted pine toy box made by Hibba Toys UK of Leeds.

I think it was suggested as an appropriate gift by the Palace. Every member of the Cabinet is contributing.

– Prime Minister David Cameron's official spokesman

Ministers are also making a charitable donation to the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
