The next royal engagement for baby George will be his christening, which will be held October 23. For the occasion, it's rumored that the baby will wear a "replica Honiton lace gown, originally designed for Queen Victoria and worn by her eldest daughter in 1841." Will's brother Harry, his grandmother the Queen, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall as well as Kate's parents Carole and Michael Middleton (and Pippa, we assume) will all attend the private ceremony. Official photos of the family will be released after the ceremony. [Maire Claire UK]
