  • The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have made some very special plans for Prince George's christening day tomorrow...

    Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, has some exciting plans in place for her baby son’s big day tomorrow.

    It’s been revealed that the royal mum will host an ‘informal tea party’ ahead of Prince George’s christening tomorrow, for close friends and family who haven’t made her intimate guest list, according to one British tabloid.

    The third in line to the throne will be christened at St James’ Palace at 3pm tomorrow, Wednesday 23 October. And while the service is entirely private, there WILL be official photographers at the entrance to capture the arrivals, so it’s likely we’ll get a glimpse of the three-month-old baby Prince for the very first time since we met him outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in July.

    For those who didn’t make the 60-strong guest list, Kate Middleton and Prince WIlliam are said to be holding a small tea party before the service. Among those attending are believed to be some of the couple’s university friends from St Andrews, William’s former colleagues from the RAF Search and Rescue team in Anglesey, and family members who weren’t invited to the ceremony.

    On Thursday, following the intimate event, a picture to commemorate the special day will be released by Kensington Palace. It will show the Queen with her three future monarchs – Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince George.

    The outfits, the baby George cuddles, the guest list, the Godparents – there’s SO much we’re excited about. We’ll bring you all the news and pictures as they land tomorrow. What we wouldn’t give to an invitation to Kate‘s tea party, though…
