How terribly rude of you to hold your Christening while I am fighting a cold and bogged down by wedding planning, Prince George!
Any other week, I would have been putting everything on hold to scrutinize photos of the lace on Kate Middleton‘s hat, or whatever. But since today is t-minus 1 month until wedding day (eek!) and I’m also in the thick of it with planning for the Dallas family wedding, I am a bit distracted. Alas.
My first thought upon seeing the above photo of Prince George being held by his father was: “Holy hell, he looks exactly like William as a baby.”
What do you think? Do you see the resemblance? I mean, they’re not twins, but it’s also plain that Kate was not, say, boinking the postman.
And, why not, here’s another pic of the future Kings together:
“Oh my god, you’re going to be a King? I’m going to be a King, too! What are the odds?!”
Prince George’s Christening was the most exclusive invite in town: The Queen and Prince Philip were there, along with Prince Harry, Prince Charles, Camilla, and an army of Middletons.
But conspicuously absent were many of the senior royals, including Prince Andrew, Princess Anne, Prince Edward, or any of the royal cousins bar Zara Phillips Tindall, who is one of 7 Godparents. (The full list of Godparents is: Zara Phillips Tindall, Oli Baker, Emilia Jardine-Paterson, William van Cutsem, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, Julia Samuel, and Earl Grosvenor.)
James Middleton and Pippa Middleton. Luckiest. Family. Ever.
Kate relied on trusty designer favorites: a cream-colored Alexander McQueen dress, and a hat by Jane Taylor. Meanwhile, Pippa’s cream-colored coat and dress were by British designer Suzannah, with a hat by Edwina Ibbotson.
I’ve said it a million times before, and I’ll say it again. It is remarkable how much the royal family has changed in the past few decades, to say nothing of the past few years. A lot of it is thanks to Princess Diana’s influence on Prince William, but Kate Middleton herself has played no small part. I can’t wait to see what else she’s got up her sleeve.
