The Palace officials said that "close members from both families" will attend the christening function, reported the Express. Reverend told the newspaper that he was delighted at the honour.  "I am delighted to be invited to conduct the baptism of HRH Prince George. It is a great privilege and honour and will without doubt be an occasion of immense joy and celebration.  I am looking forward to welcoming him into the family of the church," he said.

For the special occasion, the  royal Mint announced that they will make unique set of coins marking the christening. This would be the first time the UK Royal family will be making coins dedicated to the christening, reported the Mirror.

"The Royal Mint has celebrated moments of national significance for over 1,000 years and it was felt appropriate to produce the first-ever set of Royal christening coins to mark the christening of our future king. As a British institution, The Royal Mint has played a central role creating works of art as official commemorations of landmarks in the history of the Royal Family for hundreds of years. These coins will be a fitting addition to that long tradition," said Shane Bisset of the Royal Mint, according to the tabloid.

Prince George was born on July 22 in a London hospital and is third in succession line to the British throne.
