Kate Middleton and Prince William name Jason Bell as their official christening photographer

Kate and Will have named Jason Bell as their official christening photographer


Prince George's christening will be captured on camera by award-winning British photographer Jason Bell, it's been confirmed. 

The London-born fashion and portrait pro is famed for having captured a whole host of huge celebrities in the past, from David Beckham and Scarlett Johansson to legendary designer Tom Ford, as well as being known for creating iconic film posters such as Bridget Jones's Diary, Billy Elliot and Love Actually.

Although Jason's celebrated photographs are held in very high esteem and can be seen hanging in the National Portrait Gallery's permanent collection, tomorrow's royal occasion will see the 44-year-old taking on his biggest role yet. 

Bell, who has never snapped a member of the monarchy before, will be amongst the royal rabble at Clarence House tomorrow morning to capture Kate Middleton, Prince William and little George's special day straight after the official service at St James's Palace.

While the christening itself will be entirely private, Jason will be on hand to capture guests arriving in the morning and to also take that all-important picture of the Queen with her three future monarchs – Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince George - after the ceremony, which will then be released to the public by the Palace. 

It's a huge job, but we reckon Jason's up to the challenge!
