Do Kate and Wills have other plans for baby George Alexander Louis' christening?

Now that Kate Middleton and Prince William have decided on a name for the new Prince of Cambridge, it's time to start planning the christening of little George Alexander Louis.

But while in the past there have been Royal guidelines on how the ceremony should be carried out, it seems that Kate and Wills may have other ideas.

Talking to Vogue.co.uk, a spokesperson for St James' Palace said that this time around, there'll be 'no traditional royal protocol that the Duke and Duchess must adhere to,' and that how baby George's ceremony is carried out 'depends entirely on the family.'

Traditionally, Royal babies (including William) are christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury, in the Music Room of Buckingham Palace. Just a small group of close friends and family are normally in attendance, with a single photograph being issued to the press afterwards.

Given Kate and Wills openness with the nation so far however, there's speculation that things could be a little different for the christening of George.

While it's thought the baby will still wear a replica of a Honiton lace robe initially made in 1841 for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, where, when and how the ceremony is conducted could be given a more modern revamp.

Whatever happens though, we'll all have to wait for the Queen to return from her summer holiday in Balmoral. Jeeze!

What do you think? Reckon Kate and Wills should shake things up?

Personally, we'd like a live stream direct from the event with regular Twitter and Instagram updates...
