Prince George's christening took place today at St. James Palace in London, with parents Kate Middleton and Prince William beaming proudly from ear to ear.

As the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge pulled up in a dark blue sedan and made their way to the courtyard, a tiny cry could be heard from the guest of honor.

William held his baby boy, who was wearing the traditional lace-and-silk baptismal robe, first fashioned for Queen Victoria's son, the future King Edward VII, in 1841.

Kate Middleton wore a cream-colored skirt suit and matching fascinator by Alexander McQueen, whose creative director, Sarah Burton, also designed her wedding dress.

She also donned a matching hat by Jane Taylor and had her long hair brushed to the side for the special event, which was small by royal standards.

The queen and her husband Prince Philip attended the event Wednesday, along with Prince Charles, his wife Camilla, Prince Harry and other royals.

Kate’s parents Michael and Carole, and her sister Pippa Middleton and brother James Middleton were also on the guest list, but not many more made the cut.

William and Kate have asked seven people to be Prince George's godparents. His cousin Zara Phillips is on the list, which consists mostly of old friends.

Born on July 22, the youngster is third in line for the British throne.

Pippa Middleton read from the Gospel of St. Luke and Prince Harry read from the Gospel of St. John at the intimate gathering, palace officials said.

Palace officials said tradition would be followed and water from the River Jordan - where Christians believe Jesus Christ was baptized - would be used.

Prince Charles and wife Camilla plan to host a private tea afterward at their Clarence House residence, following the taking of some formal portraits.

Expect a multi-generational photograph of the queen with three future monarchs: her son Charles, her grandson William and her great-grandson George.
