The UK's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge typically guard their privacy and make sure every photo released of their child is a well orchestrated event.

Until now! It looks like the royal couple has invited a photographer inside their home capture some intimate moments with Prince George ... or not.

Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince George look-alikes recently posed for spoof pics capturing the family's intimate moments, with great results:

Photographer Alison Jackson, known for staged photos featuring celebrity look-alikes, found models who are the spitting image of William and Kate.

She then took all sorts of family-themed pictures that we'd never see from the royal family in real life, but other people actually would share on Facebook.

Kensington Palace has released more details of the plans for Prince George's christening, which will take place in a 45-minute ceremony on October 23.

The three-month-old son of Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, will be christened at 3 p.m. on that day in the chapel in St. James Palace.

The Archbishop of Canterbury will conduct the service, which will be attended by HRH Queen Elizabeth II along with her husband, Prince Philip.

Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, William's brother, Prince Harry, and Kate's family, Carole, Michael, James and Pippa Middleton, will also be there.

It is believed the 31-year-old new father has chosen the Chapel Royal for his son's intimate service in a tribute to his late mother, Princess Diana.

It's where her coffin lay for a week before her burial in August 1997.

Kate Middleton and Prince William have named three godparents for their newborn baby Prince George, and their choices are a break from tradition.

Bypassing Prince Harry, Pippa Middleton, and the usual royal suspects, Will and Kate instead tapped three old friends from childhood and college:

  1. Fergus Boyd, a friend from the University of St. Andrews
  2. Emilia d’Erlanger, a long-term friend of Prince William who also has known Kate Middleton since their time at Marlborough College
  3. Hugh van Cutsem, one of his oldest childhood pals

No other members of the royal family have ever selected as godparents friends who didn't have royal ties. William and Kate: They're just like us!

Young heir to the throne Prince George will be privately christened on October 23, when he is just over three months old, according to the royal family.

George Alexander Louis, Parents

The venue holds special significance, as the Chapel Royal at St. James' Palace is where Princess Diana's coffin lay before her Westminster Abbey funeral.

Indeed, the BBC reports that the Henry VIII-built chapel is a very small space, which means the baptism will likely only be for close family and friends.

George's dad, Prince William, was christened at Buckingham Palace in 1982.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Revered Justin Welby, will perform the christening of William and Kate Middleton's first-born child next month.

Kate Middleton and Prince William, who just welcomed their first child July 22, already want another baby, according to a celebrity gossip tabloid report.

They're even "eyeing" being pregnant by Christmas, according to Life & Style.

Kate Middleton: Baby No. 2?

It seems crazy to think that not even two months after becoming parents, they're looking to get pregnant a second time, but does that mean it's untrue?

Their families were reportedly STUNNED by this "announcement" of theirs.

The proof, and how the tabloid would possibly know, of course, is unclear.

But the timing is perfect, the magazine claims, and the duo's siblings - Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton - reportedly helped influence the joyful decision.

Kate Middleton was at Prince William's side for the inaugural Tusk Conservation Awards at the Royal Society in London Thursday night, and she looked amazing.

What else is new, right?

Arriving with a tuxedo-clad William at 7:10 p.m., Kate Middleton wore a drop-waist, floor-length, pale gold sequin gown by designer favorite Jenny Packham.

Although similar to an existing design, Kate's dress was custom-made, and costs approximately $6,300 ... no need to crash Jenny's website this time.

William, who is leaving the British military to focus on charity work, presented two awards for outstanding achievement in the field of African conservation.

Prince William is leaving the armed forces after more than seven years to focus on royal duties and charity work, Kensington Palace said Thursday.

William was a pilot with the Royal Air Force Search and Rescue Force.

Known to his RAF comrades as Flight Lt. Wales, he had been stationed at a search-and-rescue base on the remote Welsh island of Anglesey since 2010.

He has lived there with Kate Middleton and now Prince George.

In the next few weeks, the family will move into their official residence at Kensington Palace, as William considers a "number of options" for public service.

For now, the 31-year-old will focus on his royal duties. He will also expand on his conservation work, dealing particularly with endangered species.

In the new tell-all book Kate: The Future Queen, author Katie Nicholl claims Kate Middleton didn’t just luck into her happily ever after with Prince William.

“There were too many coincidences,” Katie tells celebrity gossip magazine In Touch of the way the duo got together years ago, implying Kate scripted it.

For starters, the author points out, consider Kate Middleton's choice of school.

“They actually first met through friends in the summer of 1999, before college,” reveals Nicholl, who says that encounter must have had a major impact.

Kate gave up her spot at a prestigious university to go to his school instead.

Suffice it to say, new motherhood agrees with Kate Middleton.
