Kate Middleton Is All Smiles In Official Christening Portrait

Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, takes centre stage in Prince George's official christening photograph.

Kate Middleton is all smiles in her beautiful ivory Alexender McQueen dress, as she perches the adorable Prince George on her knee in the official christening portrait of her son and family.

Bringing together four generations of royals, the official christening photographer Jason Bell (who is renowned for his portraits of high profile celebrities) captured both sides of the family at Clarence house after baby George’s big moment.

Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla Parker-Bowles and a grinning Prince Harry all stood behind the Queen and Kate for the photo, while Pippa, James, Carole and Michael Middleton posed behind William.

With Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince George altogether, this is the first photo in almost 120 years that shows the Queen with three future kings, and the first in a long time to have real historical significance.

The family photo echoes the intimate nature of the christening, which was attended by members of the royal family, Kate's immediate family and Prince George's seven Godparents.

While the Queen, Charles and William were all christened at Buckingham Palace, Kate and William chose to break with tradition and have their son christened at the Chapel Royal  - it was here that Princess Diana’s coffin lay before her funeral.

Speaking about the christening at a gala event last night, Kate said Prince George had been a "very good boy". He certainly behaved well for the cameras, and looked gorgeous in his lace christening gown.

We can't wait to see more of the little prince.
