PRINCESS DIANA'S GRANDSON PRINCE GEORGE CHRISTENED

Prince George, outside St. James Palace for his christening on Wednesday.

The historic Chapel Royal is where the baby’s beloved grandmother, Princess Diana, lay in wake before her burial in 1997.

Prince George was christened over a silver gilt font by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, who splashed water on the baby's head three times and marked his forehead with the sign of the cross.

The baby wore a long, lacy christening gown also worn by his father at his own baptism. The gown is a replica of the one first worn by Queen Victoria’s daughter and then passed down through the generations. The original 19th-century gown was replaced after being deemed too fragile for continued use.
