The cheeky statement earned a smile from her father, Prince William, who held Charlotte and Prince George's hands as they left the for post-christening reception party.

Kate was heard saying she "hopes he stays like this", as her tot lay dozing in her arms, describing him as "very relaxed and peaceful" when speaking to the archbishop.

During the ceremony, his seven godparents were also named, including Prince William's cousin Zara Tindall and many of their closest friends. Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, Lady Laura Meade, Mrs Robert Carter and Lucy Middleton all agreed to the honor prior to the ceremony.

After the 40-minute ceremony, the families went to Clarence House for a tea party where guests were to be served slices of the traditional christening treat, a tier taken from Will and Kate's 2011 wedding cake.

Royal fanatics, who had been camped outside the hospital wing for several days in anticipation, jumped for joy and popped open champagne as the news of his birth was announced.
