I didn't think the crowd sounded hysterical, but I could only watch the feed that focused on the entrance to the chapel. A few people were dressed colorfully but, like you, I would be surprised if that hadn't been the case.

George is very calm, at least for the few moments we saw him.

Prince George is almost the spitting image of William at the same age!

Thanks for posting the link of the departure. Zara looks terrific.

Awww, Baby George's got a pout, just like his mother. The rest of his face is quite William, I believe.

I don't understand how using the lily font from the Crown Jewels, in a replica gown by the AoC in a royal chapel is breaking tradition. It is not like the AoC is using drool from Lupo to christen George :)
IMHO they've included the most important traditions while putting their own stamp on the event.

I suspect this is in reference to the old men who dress up weird - sort of like the "town cryer" who got himself all over the press when PG was born.

I find it interesting that they choose 7 godparents, rather than 8. It's not as though they have a shortage of female friends.

To me, it didn't look that there were that many people out there watching and waiting. George's christening just didn't garner the attention of the public enough for mobs to congregate such as the royal birth did. It was what it was. A small, private family ceremony.

Carole looked very good today, much better than Pippa, whose hat was not right for her somehow. And Camilla's outfit is nice and proper.

Catherine looked very sweet I found her very elegant!
George is too cute and beautiful and for the moment he's the spitting image of William... But I think he is going to look like Kate a little bit as he grows up...
A silly question : Isn't the frozen cake disgusting? I mean... 2 years have passed! (Sorry I am italian and I can't help thinking of food
P.S.: Who was holding P. George as he was being christened? Parents or godparents?

Yes I agree about Pippa's hat - a little too fussy. I thought Zara looked blooming in the nicest possible way. The shade of blue suited her.
On another point, is it likely there would have been flowers in the Chapel? - just trying to picture the setting.

George looks very much like Kate, looks like her genes dominated. Brown hair, button nose, full cheeks. Looks like she has been feeding him well also.

Yeah, it sounds unhealthy to have a frozen fruit cake two years old. Yuck!!

I bet William & Catherine slobber those apple cheeks down whenever they get a chance. A very beautiful family, can't wait for the official pictures.
