Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby will baptize Prince George on Wednesday this week. Here he talks about the gift and promise of baptism:
The Archbishop of Canterbury has said he hopes the “extraordinary” baptism of Prince George will inspire others to seek the same ceremony.
The Most Rev Justin Welby will perform the christening at the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace on Wednesday.
In a YouTube film released ahead of the service, the archbishop said he hoped people would not view baptism as only for a future king or “special people”.
