Prince George will have his christening on 10/23/13 at the Chapel Royal in St. James' Palace. The news arrived on Sept. 27 when CBS News reported that the royal couple has chosen a date for the religious occasion. Many photos of Prince George are expected on the happy day which will mark the baby's first public appearance since his parents introduced him to the world at St. Mary's hospital back in July.
Prince William and Kate Middleton will likely bring their baby to the Chapel Royal themselves -- yes, that means that Prince William will (once again) be driving, something that isn't very common amongst the old-school royal family.
Prince George's christening will be attended by most of the royal family including the Queen and her husband, Prince Philip. Kate's parents, Michael and Carole will also be in attendance as will all of George's chosen godparents. So far, only one has been confirmed: William's pal Guy Pelly was asked last month. Other presumed godparents include Kate's sister, Pippa Middleton, and William's brother, Prince Harry. In all, Prince George will have six godparents, something that's not uncommon in the royal realm.
As far as the actual christening goes, Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby will do the royal honors.
Prince George's christening will likely be a huge ordeal but it will not be as big as the royal wedding.
