Prince George, third in line to the throne, will be christened (with water from the River Jordan) today. It’s an event that will be celebrated with acres of newsprint, film, photographs, commemorative coins, postage stamps, free flights to Ibiza (for Prince George) and probably cupcakes too.

The little prince is the latest in a long line of royal babies to be christened in the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace.
