LONDON — Palace officials say Britain’s youngest royal, Prince George, will be christened next month in the Chapel Royal at St. James’s Palace.

George — whose full name is His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge — was born July 22. He is the first child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and third in line to the throne.

Kensington Palace announced Friday that George will be christened on Oct. 23 by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.

The palace said close members of both families will be present for the event, but did not elaborate.
