Snaps will not be released till Thursday

William and Kate have asked Jason Bell to be the official photographer at the christening of their son, Prince George. Mr. Bell will take the official photographs at Clarence House following the service in the Chapel Royal, a spokesperson for the young royals said today.

Jason Bell is a well-established portrait photographer. Many of his photos have been acquired for the National Portrait Gallery for their permanent collection. He has received a number of awards, including The Royal Photographic Society’s Terrence Donovan Award for outstanding contribution to photography and the Best British Black and White Photographer at the British Picture Editor’s Awards.

He was made an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society in September 2011.

The official pictures will not be released until Thursday, the day after the event, the palace said.

Let's hope he can do better than Kate's dad!
