Family Guy Christening


Those Welsh corgis better watch out!

A beer-swilling Brian Griffin is giving one of Queen Elizabeth II's precious pets a sniff in a hilarious new photo in which Family Guy is spoofing the official Prince George christening portrait by inserting baby Stewie in for the royal baby alongside animated versions of Kate Middleton, Prince William and other members of the royal family.

In the pic, Prince Charles looks a little concerned by the tot with a football-shaped head and evil grin being cradled in his daughter-in-law's arms, while Prince Harry is easily identified by his shock of orange hair.

The photo is intended to get fans psyched for the Nov. 4 DVD release of the show's 12th season in the U.K., which includes the episode "Chap of the Manor," a send-up of many things British that was included in the show's 10th season in the U.S.

But this isn't the first time that Seth MacFarlane's sitcom has paid homage to the glamorous royal family.

Following the royal wedding, Brian asks Peter in an episode about the book he's reading, Science & Health and the Key to the Scriptures.

"I figured I'd give it a shot," Peter replied. "I mean wouldn't it be cool if you could pray really hard for something and it actually happened?"

He puts his hand together in prayer and apparently his fantasy is to be Kate Middleton, because the scene flashes to real-life footage of the newly married Duke and Duchess of Cambridge riding to Buckingham Palace on their wedding day, with Peter's cartoon face plastered on the bride's body.

"I am so happy for me. I deserve this," he says contentedly. "When do you think the queen is gonna die?"

Moving on...

As U.S. television has its way with the royal family on these shores, Prince William is continuing his day-to-day routine of being a royal mensch.

He has scheduled a visit to watch two surgical procedures, a breast reconstruction and a tumor removal from a bladder, at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Chelsea on Nov. 7.

"He is president of the Royal Marsden so he needs to know about and get to see as much of the work that goes on there as possible," a Kensington Palace spokesperson told London's Daily Express.

On Nov. 26, Taylor Swift and Jon Bon Jovi are scheduled to perform at Centrepoint's Winter Whites Gala at Kensington Palace. William is a patron of Centrepoint, which aids homeless youths.
