Kate, William and Prince George arrive at St James's Palace for the royal christening


Kate Middleton stepped out for Prince George's christening this afternoon looking gorgeously feminine in a cream ruffle Alexander McQueen dress and matching fascinator. 

Kate, Prince William and three-month-old baby George arrived at St James's Palace at 3pm, with dad Will happily bouncing their little one in his arms as they greeted the Archbishop of Canterbury at the entrance of the Chapel Royal. 

The 31-year-old Duchess of Cambridge, who will be hosting a celebratory tea party in Clarence House after the service, continued her royal style parade in a chic cream McQueen dress with front ruffle detail and an elegant Jane Taylor hat. 

The future King was also dressed for the occasion, sporting a royal-regulation replica lace Honiton gown in what was the stylish tot's first official public appearance since his birth. 

Other guests seen entering the Palace were George's newly-announced Godparents, the Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry, as well as Kate's parents Michael and Carole, brother James and little sister Pippa, who opted for a classic cream Suzannah trapeze coat and beaded pillbox hat by British milliner Edwina Ibbotson.

The special ceremony won't be allowing photographers inside, but tomorrow an official portrait will be released showing the Queen with her three future monarchs – Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince George.

Could Kate just have worked the chicest royal christening outfit in history? We think so.
