Britain's royal baby christened

LONDON - Britain's royal baby, Prince George, was christened Wednesday.

It's another landmark event for the country's monarchy, but George's parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, are determined to make it a small family affair.

George was baptized in St. James' Palace, and the christening was conducted by Britain's most senior clergyman, the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The guest list was so small that some of the most senior members of the royal family have not been invited.

Just three months ago William and Kate stepped out of St. Mary's hospital in London and introduced their new baby to the world. 

The couple has been quick to return to the routine of royal engagements, guarding their privacy at home and leaving George out of the public gaze.
