Prince George will be christened later today at the Lily Font with water from the River Jordan, Kensington Palace has announced.
The Lily Font is a silver baptismal font which was commissioned by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1840 for the birth of their first child, Victoria, Princess Royal. It was first used at The Princess Royal’s Christening in 1841 and has been used at every Royal christening since then.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have released four official photographs from Prince George’s christening
Prince George was christened today in a small, private service at the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace.
Royal christening celebrations are steeped in tradition and history, and Prince George's, though intimate, will be no different.
