• Prince George's playmates: young royals heirs destined for the throne

    Prince George will have plenty of royal playmates to choose from, including the three other young male heirs destined for the throne. CLICK ON PHOTO FOR FULL GALLERY Newly christened George of Cambridge joins Prince Christian of Denmark, Prince Moulay Hassan of Morocco and Prince Hisahito of Japan as the world's youngest male heirs.

  • Bonny baby Prince George takes after Kate, but William and Diana get a look in too

    When William and Kate introduced Prince George to the world, his father quipped that luckily the little boy had inherited his mother's looks.

  • William and Kate rewrite the royal rulebook to make George's christening an informal family affair compared to his father's

    While Prince George's christening paid subtle tributes to Princess Diana throughout, in many ways her memory also reflected how much the monarchy has moved with the times. Right from the moment the venue was announced it was clear that Prince William and Kate wanted to do things their own way. The new parents decided to forgo the grandeur of Buckingham Palace for the more intimate Chapel Royal at St James's Palace.   Just 23 guests joined them at the ceremony compared to the large 60-strong gathering at William's baptism in 1982. Afterwards, he was whisked away by his nanny Barbara Barnes while
