The Baptism of Prince George - 7

This photo is of deep significance. We see Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II (the Throne) with The Prince of Wales (First in line of Succession to the Throne), with the Duke of Cambridge (Second in line of Succession to the Throne), and with Prince George (Third in line of Succession to the Throne).

We give thanks to God for our Constitutional Monarchy.

God save our gracious Queen,
long live our noble Queen,
God save the Queen!
Send her victorious,
happy and glorious,
long to reign over us,
God save the Queen!

Thy choicest gifts in store
on her be pleased to pour,
long may she reign:
may she defend our laws,
and ever give us cause
to sing with heart and voice
God save the Queen!

This post concludes our celebrations of the 60th Anniversary of the Coronation. What a year it's been - I shall never forget my visit to Buckingham Palace on 14 July. I shall of course be posting Her Majesty's Message to the Commonwealth on Christmas Day.
