He had the hungry cry. Only Diana seemed to be able to keep him calm.

I don't expect that many people will actually eat that cake; it's just there to keep up the tradition. (I wouldn't want to eat fruitcake if it was freshly-baked, because I just don't like it).


I'm sure they'll serve other desserts at the reception.

Re. wedding cake for Christening - Cepe has explained it extremely well, it is done all the time and it is not horrible.

Christmas puddings also can be left for ages, I have a Christmas pudding from Christmas 2011 which will be eaten this year - but by some people's standards, this is a very short period of time.

George looked rather unimpressed but managed to keep a stiff upper lip, like a true British royal.

Good show, little chap!

That face!!! If George were any cuter it would be illegal, I think. You just want to kiss those chubby cheeks! (Yes, I melt around babies. I regret nothing.)

Such a bonny little boy! He's somewhat better looking (to my eyes) than William was as a small child and it will be interesting to see whom he resembles most as he grows. It's difficult to say at this age, particularly as baby's change so much, but he seems a little more Middleton to me. Not that it matters one jot - he is who he is.

It really looked like a happy and pleasant gathering, didn't it? The ladies were all beautifully dressed, and the gentlemen......did anyone else notice what a great advertisement for Savile Row tailoring that they presented? William, in particular, with his tall and athletic physical frame, looked absolutely outstanding; the cut of his suit was exquisite. It always surprises me that so much attention revolves around the ladies' outfits whereas the style and aplomb of the gentlemen is so often overlooked.

Zara looked very well, too, which was good to see. It's pleasing that one royal was included as a godparent and one, whom it's to be assumed, will have quite a lot of contact with George as her child grows up with him.

Looking forward so much to seeing the official photographs with Her Majesty and her three heirs.

To me he looked just like his mother! And looks to be a good boy!

I too wish Kate had worn a piece of significant, historical jewelry.

Why was George in a replica gown? Was it that he was too big for the one his father used? His father, william, was christened at a much younger age.Zara looked better than I have ever seen her. All were beautifully dressed, except Pippa's hat.

Did I notice that the clergy do not bow to HM?

The original gown is far too fragile to be worn, so a duplicate was made.

it is a tradition in the Uk for many,many years.
That's traditional here in NZ also, and the fruit-based cakes are used precisely because they keep well and are robust enough for little slices to be mailed in wee tins to people who couldn't attend the wedding. The top tier of the wedding-cake is kept as a Christening-cake, or First-Anniversary cake.

I think he has dark eyes even now, but their shape are more like Williams. He is a bit too small to say what he will look like when grows up.

Unrelieved white again for Camilla. Sigh.

George looked very calm and took it all in stride; I do like his serious expression and clasped hands. And what a bruiser; what is it about chubby baby cheeks that turns us into cannibals?

Those chubby cheeks are something else. I just know his parents slobber them down as much as possible.

I ( personally) find excluding William's aunt,uncles and his cousins (thought he was really close to Peter,Autumn,york sisters) rather tacky.........sure they may have wanted to keep in simple, but these relatives are very important...........and what's another half dozen people..........its not like William,Kate,Charles & Camilla have had to do all the cooking,housekeeping,serving...............when its all said and done...friends come & go, but family (where you like it or not) always remains............Again, (personally) I would find it very hard to accept that kind of slight/cold shoulder..family is still family...........
No one has to agree with me............just my own personal feeling!

Then I would advise you never visit me, as we usually have both Christmas Cake and Carrot pudding in our freezer for more than a year sometimes if we don't have any big gatherings here during the Holidays. In fact, we had Christmas Cake last week as my Dad was in hospital and we had far more important things to worry about than making goodies.

As long as it's properly preserved, and w/the Royals you can be assured of that, it's not a problem. Plus w/the brandy in that thing, which is a traditional way of making Christmas Cake/Fruitcake, once again not a problem.

I think little George looks like Catherine and his cheeks are adorable. He's a chunky little fellow.
