Britain's royal baby, Prince George, will be christened on Wednesday.

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

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

The guest list is 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 have been quick to return to the routine of royal engagements, guarding their privacy at home and leaving George out of the public gaze.
