The little prince arrived in the arms of William and was seen wearing a replica of the Honiton lace royal christening robe, in which the Duke was also christened. The christening ceremony was held in the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace and began around 3 pm on October 23, 2013, while people gathered in front of the chapel to celebrate the happy occasion.

Guests started arriving in the afternoon and Prince Harry, Zara Tindall and her husband Mike were the first ones to arrive for the ceremony. Earlier, the Kensington palace confirmed that there will be a 45-minute service and will be performed by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby.

The Duchess of Cambridge was seen wearing an Alexander McQueen dress for the occasion. Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton read the lessons during the christening, but they missed out on being pronounced as godparents. There were just 22 guests for the service, including the Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry.
