  • The Queen steals a secret cuddle with Prince George in unseen Christmas christening shoot. Get all the details...

    Kate Middleton and Prince William look every inch the proud parents in Prince George’s christening photos, as they joined the Queen for a set of history-making snaps last month.

    But new reports suggest more pictures starring just Her Majesty and baby George could emerge very soon.

    Renowned photographer Jason Bell captured the royal family’s special day at St James’ Palace, as Prince George was christened at The Chapel Royal on 23 October.

    Kate Middleton’s sister Pippa, brother James and parents Carole and Michael, then accompanied the royal family for the photoshoot at Clarence House.

    With the world watching on, it was the first time that four generations of monarchs had gathered for a picture for more than a century.

    But that’s not all. It’s also thought that the Queen requested a few extra snaps on the day, which she plans to publish on her next Christmas card.

    As many anticipated, Bell DID manage to photograph the Queen holding her great grandson, much like the Duchess of Cambridge is seen doing in the main photo. But the top-secret snap has been kept under tight security since it was taken.

    Now, as she tops up the not-so-modest 45,000 cards she had sent during her reign so far, the Queen is expected to print the family snap along with her festive greetings next month.

    The same picture may also appear on the Christmas card sent out by Kate and Wills.

    With the picture yet to go public, it’s set to be among the most-wanted christening memorabilia for collectors.

    We’re betting it’s adorable. Roll on Christmas!
