I don't think Her Majesty would mind to have a 17th realm!

I would offer Brazil to her, but we already have a pretender, Prince Luiz.

As for who should have been invited, I think they got it right, with the families of both sides balanced, with grandparents and siblings. Catherine doesnt have any grandparents

dont really see how people have cause to complain. And what was wonderful to see was the happiness on the faces of Catherine and William. Their entire focus was George
Agreed! And I have to say, what a joy to see Catherine and William beaming at their son's sweet face.

Earl Grosvenor...

...is very cute!

And speaking of cute, in the MYROYALS &HOLLYWOOD FASH, my favorite pictures are the ones where, after looking alert and dignified when William was holding him, he relaxes in Kate's arms, his eyes droop and close slightly, and he looks very comfy, almost like he's ready to nod off. Any mother (and father) will recognize that sweet pre-sleep look and posture.

Earl Grosvenor indeed is cute

... though, hands down, no one beats the cuteness of little George

I agree - I think they did a wonderful job. W&K under promised and over delivered. I never expected the photos leading in and out of the chapel. Seems they let only one AP camera in the courtyard to take photos.

There has been no other BRF christening televised; it is a private event. In fact, apparently Prince Charles name wasn't even released until his Christening. And the videos that were available of the photo shoots were released much later during HM's Christmas broadcast or one of the Royal Family documentaries. They have just become so commonplace now because of youtube.

And as for godparents..... None of Charles nor Diana's siblings were William's godparents. Pss Alexandra was the only family member as a godparent; the rest were friends of Charles and Diana (mostly Charles).

I think W&K got it right on their own terms - I'm looking forward to the release of today's official portraits.

Sources said there will be a pic of William, Catherine and baby, one with middletons and royals, one with godparents and one with the 4 generations.
Maybe this is a silly question: what do the godparents exactly do at the ceremony? Do the only attend or have specific functions?

I agree. I am American and do not view the RF as a brand by any means. I am fascinated by the history and traditions, but do not view them as property of any nation other than the common wealth. I seriously doubt they would delay releasing official photos in consideration of the U.S. time zones. Canada perhaps, but certainly not the U.S.

I don't understand why it has taken so long to release photos from the christening, but I am just happy to see one of the four generations and I really hope the Queen is holding George.

I just think it is super nice that they announced the time in advance so we don't have to spend all day checking for photos! Maybe they chose a later time in order to be sure of being able to meet it!

Peter Hunt ‏@BBCPeterHunt 3m Kate on George at christening: He was such a good boy actually, we’re very lucky - he’s not always like that...(1/2)

Peter Hunt ‏@BBCPeterHunt 1m
