Le prince George, promis au trône d'Angleterre, a fait mercredi à Londres sa deuxième brève apparition publique à l'occasion de son baptême, révélant un visage joufflu et des cheveux clairs dans une robe de satin et de dentelle crème.

Les photos officielles, prises par le photographe Jason Bell, viennent d'être dévoilé et nous montrent une famille royale plus heureuse que jamais.

royal family

En rupture avec la tradition, ses parents, le prince William et son épouse Kate, ont opté pour une cérémonie intime, sans le faste usuel de la famille royale.

Seuls 22 invités - dont seulement six membres de la famille royale, au premier rang desquels la reine Elizabeth II, souriante en tenue bleu roi - ont assisté à la célébration religieuse d'une demi-heure dans la chapelle du palais Saint-James.
