Taken in the Morning Room at Clarence House following Prince George's christening Wednesday, the infant takes center stage throughout the series.

His always fashionable mom (follow the link for a Kate Middleton fashion breakdown) steals the show as well. And William's alright too. Just kidding.

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 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.

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.

"She spoke to some of her best girlfriends after the birth and described the birth as perfect," a source told Vanity Fair's longtime royal reporter Katie Nicholl.

"She said it was straightforward and there were no complications. She wanted a natural birth and she was so happy she was able to have one."

This on top of the fact that throughout her entire first pregnancy, Kate Middleton, 31, only looked pregnant from the front with a perfect baby bump.
