Happy, happy, joy, joy!
It's almost the day when Prince William and Duchess Catherine's baby boy Prince George will be royally christened. In fact, it's tomorrow!
A lot of folks were curious when the Royal Palace revealed that the event would take place at the Chapel Royal since that is not the usual place where the royal christening occurs.
But apparently Prince William wanted it to be there in part because his late mother Princess Diana's body was kept there before her funeral in 1997.
Here's what a source said:
"It's a special place for William. Having the service there is his way of involving his mother, who he so wishes could be here for all of this."
The guest list for the 45 minute ceremony has been talked about a lot lately because of its apparently very small size. And that still appears to be the case! There is less than fifty people on the list with "close members of both families" invited as well as the midwives who helped deliver the baby!
The royal couple have also urged the potential gift givers to give to those who are needy instead of them!
Here's what the palace said:
"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are incredibly grateful for the support and goodwill being expressed at this happy time. Their Royal Highnesses are grateful, too, for the many gifts they have already received. To harness this extraordinary generosity of spirit, they suggest people might at this time look to support those more in need; perhaps a children's charity local to them. Alternatively, you could look to support Imperial College Healthcare Charity, which is the charity of the hospital where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's baby was born."
Prince George will be having his royal christening clothes designed by a Angela Kelly who is the fashion designed to Queen Elizabeth II, and it will be a replica of Victoria, Princess Royal for the christening she was a part of all the way back in 1841.
Talk about ancient history!!!
And, "they have to follow a pretty tight schedule so if George is crying, the show must go on!" No spoiled babies here!
Sounds like this royal christening is going to be one HUGE spectacle, and we cannot wait!!!
