Outside St James's Palace crowds gathered to catch a glimpse of Kate and William's baby son, who was today seen in public for only the second time since he was born in July. Some royal watchers camped outside the palace for more than 24 hours to obtain a good vantage point to watch the guests arrive, but the ceremony was private. Britain's three-month-old future monarch, Prince George, wearing a long christening robe, arrived in his father's arms with his mother by their side, and appeared to wave at his great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, although it was really a case of William moving his son's hand up and down; they joined the few royals attending his baptism, described as an 'intimate family affair'. Only the Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry saw the heir to the throne baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, in the little known Chapel Royal this afternoon. 
William and Kate hired photographer Jason Bell to take official pictures, which are expected to include a historic multi-generational photograph of the queen with three future monarchs: her son Charles, her grandson William and her great-grandson George.
