Will and Kate buck tradition again with Prince George's christening
The royal family announced today their plans to christen Prince George at The Chapel Royal, a small private chapel located in St. James's Palace. Traditionally, previous generations of royals, including Prince William and his brother Prince Harry have been baptized in the music room at Buckingham Palace. However, this new royal family has been anything by traditional.
The ceremony will take place on October 23rd, presided over by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the head of the Church of England. Photographs from the event will be released shortly after the ceremony.

Now the guessing game continues as to who the godparents will be. Many have speculated William and Kate will buck tradition once more and elect their friends instead of their royal relatives. Rumor is William has already asked friend and nightclub promoter Guy Pelly to be a godparent. As for Kate, we'll have to wait and see who she chooses but we have a feeling Pippa will be a little upset if she isn't chosen.
