The royal baby slept through his entire, much-anticipated entrance for the royal christening on Monday. He was even napping peacefully in the arms of his mother, Kate Middleton, when she greeted Archbishop Justin Welby, who led the ceremony. When the archbishop pointed out the sleeping prince, Princess Kate responded, “Let’s hope he stays like this!”

Kate honored the occasion by wearing an Alexander McQueen dress, the same designer she wore for her older children’s christenings and her own wedding.
