There will be pics, but only for the family and friends.
So no pics will be published and there will be no pics in the morning papers!!!
1 picture will be released.

Thank you so much, it's such a cute picture! Too bad his sister is not involved in it

I just happened to be online when the BBC posted the article. No enlarged version yet. Must have been released at 21:00. It is a lovely picture though.

From what I understand that is the only pic. No enlarged version, unless you mean one of better quality.
I must say that this is not what the newspapers were expecting, and in the coming days thay will have a lot to say about it.

Don´t know but I have a feeling that little Viscount Severn has the same eye problem like his sister. His eyes look, compared to his head very small in a strange way.....

What a darling photograph of a very robust and alert young baby! Whatever his food allergy, it is no more...He looks as if he is well-fed.

I am very upset and disappointed about Lady Louise not included in the photo. Very odd, indeed.

I would like to add I am very glad Prince Philip got to see his grandson's Christening....I was deeply worried he might miss it for some reason due to his health. I am sure this is a happy weekend for all at Windsor. The celebration of both young and old lives..Congrats and good wishes to both James and his beloved granny, HM The Queen.

Sophie looks absolutely beautiful and little James looks adorable. I do wish there had some photos of the entire family and the god-parents.

Perhaps Edward is smart enough to somehow have ownership and control over what is released to the public through the media regarding his family. He may be setting a precedent that William and Harry will be following with their families as well. As much as I would want to see tons and tons of family photos of private events, perhaps Edward is going down the correct path. Maybe one day he will publish his own family album....

James is beautiful baby...very healthy looking. Sophie and Edward seem very happy. I only wish Louise could have been in the picture. I should imagine it will be a long time until we see them again.

If you look at the larger photo at the royalist website, the childs eyes look normal.

The Royalist - Private Christening For Edward & Sophie's Baby James

I think the smaller photo on the bbc website just makes his eyes look strange.

Lovely photo of the happy couple with their lovely little boy.

I am still disappointed Louise was not included in the family portrait....Omissions often lead to whispers that something is not right.

The last photo we saw of Lady Louise was her watching her grandmother through a window---here's a link:

She looks fine to me--actually, she is a beautiful child. It's a pity we don't see her more. Have there been any other recent sightings?

That picture was from November of last year when the Queen was on her way to open Parliament and Louise was watching out the window.

According to the Mail on Sunday the Christening was attendinded by Prince Andrew, Princess Anne and Tim Lawrence and the Rhys-Jones. None of the younger royals nor Prince Charles attended.

I must say that me and several royal correspondant were expecting something more Litchfield. I suppose you get so used to the way you see Christenings that you don't like any other. Do you perfer the new style or would you rather have seen a formal Litchfield pic, with the people standing behind chairs?
