Royal Christening

The Baptism of the Infant Son of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took place at 3.00 p.m.  on the 23rd October, 2013, in the Chapel Royal, St. James's Palace.

The Lord Archbishop of Canterbury, assisted by the Lord Bishop of London (Dean of Her Majesty's Chapels Royal) and the Reverend Prebendary William Scott (Sub-Dean of Her Majesty's Chapels Royal), baptised the Infant Prince who received the names George Alexander Louis.

The Godparents were: Mrs. Michael Tindall, Earl Grosvenor, the Hon. Mrs. Michael Samuel, Mrs. David Jardine-Paterson, Mr. Oliver Baker, Mr. William van Cutsem and Major James Lowther-Pinkerton.

Lord Grosvenor is heir to the Duke of Westminster (born at Omagh, County Tyrone, and raised at Ely Lodge, County Fermanagh).

Their Royal Highness' choice of Hugh Grosvenor is a shrewd and judicious one, given that he will inherit his father's vast estates and wealth in central London and elsewhere.
