(CBS News) Prince William and Kate have set a date for the christening of their baby boy, Prince George.

The christening will take place on Oct. 23 at the Chapel Royal in St. James' Palace in London, Clarence House announced Friday.

He will be christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby.

George is the first child for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The public has only gotten to see him twice since his July 22 birth -- first when he left the hospital with his parents, and again when two photos of the new royal family were released last month.
