The Official Family Photos of Prince George’s Christening

The future King of England and I want to eat him up with a spoon!

Happy Prince George is shown with his parents, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Four generations. The Queen and her three successors, Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince George.

I just adore how happy Her Majesty looks. Cornflower blue is a lovely colour on her. I would like to know WHAT is in her handbag though. It is in close proximity in every photo. :)

It has been over 120 years since such an event has happened previously. In 1894 Queen Victoria was shown with her great grandson, Edward VIII along with his father and grandfather, George V and Edward VII.

The official portraits were taken in the Morning Room at Clarence House by  photographer James Bell.

I can’t help but take in the furnishings of the room. The sofa upon which the Duke and Duchess sat was created by Thomas Chippendale in approximately 1773.

Beautiful pictures. Thanks for posting Laura. I would have loved to see a picture of the Queen holding the baby. I wonder if they took one?

I'm a faithful reader, but don't often comment. Today, I just had to say THANK YOU. I love your posts about the royal family. I have been interested in them since I was a child and watched Charles and Diana's wedding. Thanks you so much for gathering all the best photos and putting them beautifully for us to enjoy! Mary

i think he is adorable, and it is a lovely family picture; and they are a lovely family. God help them and bless them. a slight observation.... struck me as odd, though, surely could be a silly observation...He is without his wedding ring.... my husband goes without his due to the work he does and that, frankly, age has added a few pounds so it doesn't fit well, anymore. just paying attention to detail...
