Or it could be used during the queens Christmas broadcast or some other later production. We forget that none of the videos of prior christening videos were released at the time of the christening, always a documentary or Christmas broadcast. Don't give up hope ...it still may exist.

I agree, but as Michelle said, perhaps we'll get a video of the christening at HM's Christmas Speech. I bet a video of the photo of George smiling would've been cute.

I think that the Christening of the Future King should have been a mucht more big event than it was...I udnerstand their way of beeing private but we are talking abut the future king on England not also their baby...and...it was a very small and private event...

Regarding the christening being closed from the public, it's not William and Catherine being private, christenings in the BRF have always been private. It's only in the Scandinavian royal families (and some other European RFs, I'm not sure which as they're neither as big nor televised here in Denmark as the Norwegian and Swedish (the Swedish in particular) ones are) that it is customary to televise the christenings and make them big and public.

I think it is highly unlikely that the Queen would send out a Christmas card of herself holding George without the Duke in the picture as well (as the card would be from both of them), which really defeats the purpose of the historic photo where the different generations of present & future monarchs are pictured together.

Also why would the Cambridges send a christmas card with the queen and George without them. We have never seen any Christmas cards from the Cambridges.

I would think if the Queen wanted a baby George shot for her card- it is the Queen holding George with Philip.

Well, no sense in arguing about whether it will or won't be on her Christmas card - we will know in very short order.

I would love to see a photo of the Queen holding George - it's just as much historic value as the four generations together, and I think that a photo of just the two could be far more emotionally packed.

But I'd like to see the DoE with the baby too.

I do hope we get to see another of George with triumphant fists in the air.

Maybe we'll have some glimpse of the event thanks to a TV program on a later date. Like this :



Maybe for the 2013 Christmas speech ...
Or maybe not. As always there is a great difference btw some wishful thinking and the down to earth approach of the Windsors. As this poor chap will have to grow up under the scrutiny of the public eye, some privacy is very welcome imo.

Yes, I think this is the most likely opportunity to see more pictures from the Christening. The Queen often features footage of major events from the year in her Christmas broadcasts and shapes part of her message around them. What could be more appropiate for a Christams message than the birth of a new baby, and having filmed the photoshoot at previous royal christenings, I think we can be fairly optimistic that this was also the case at George's Christening.

I'm sure there's got to be a photo of HM holding George; with all the photos that had to be taken at the christening one (or several) must exist, and I'm sure with the DoE as well. It's too important, not only for the historic value but also as personal family photos with great-grandparents holding their great-grandson. I'm sure we'll see these photos eventually and I won't stress over any not being released currently.

I don't think they took pics of the queen or the duke holding George...someone on twitter made a good point when the christening pictures were released that when is the last time you saw the queen holding a baby that wasn't her own...we haven't.

If there is video footage of the photo shoot I don't think its likely we will see it...will and kate are very private people..I see them keeping it for themselves.


I think if they were going to have her take a picture with the baby it would of been the 3 kings photo..and they probably thought it was better to have the father hold the baby...considering if it wasn't mom or dad the baby probably would have screamed its head off.

I for one don't care if there wasn't a picture of the queen holding George...I understand a lot of people want to see that but I enjoy the pictures they release and won't be disappointed in least if there are no photos of that.

Sorry to labour this conversation, but as someone pointed out much earlier in this thread, we do have pic in the public domain of her with her first grandson

I just hope people don't get their hopes up too much for a pic or footage....to be disappointed if it doesn't happen. I guess at this point we'll find out in a month or so...I imagine those cards start getting released in early dec.

I think the queen or charles will use the 3 kings picture (the one already released) as their christmas card.

Will I am sure there is a picture of the Queen holding her Great Grandchild ( and of all three in fact) but just because they never released one doesn't mean there is not a photo the Queen holding Prince George. I bet she held him when he visited balmoral but those photos will stay private and within the family and probably won't be made public for a long time.

Though I know it's highly unlikely, how great would a Christmas card with the Queen, Prince Philip and their three great-grandchildren, Savannah, Isla and George, be? I would absolutely love that.

I certain that there are at least a few private pictures of both HM and Prince Philip holding little George as well.

That would be amazing! All three great-grandchildren!
