Kate Middleton and Prince William made no secret about Prince George's fussy ways as a newborn.

Unlike his baby sis Princess Charlotte, the future king kept mum and dad up at all hours of the night those first few weeks months. Even so, Prince George was a perfect little angel back at his royal christening in October 2013!

Baby George, who wore his father's then-172-year-old Honiton lace royal gown, "was such a good boy, actually," Kate later told reporters. "We were very lucky, he's not always like that."

Inside the Chapel Royal at St. James' Palace, William reportedly joked of George, "It's the first time he's been quiet all day!" And per the U.K.'s Telegraph, Georgie even appeared to wave at his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, while being bounced in his dad's arms. Such a charmer!

There were 23 people at George's christening--including Uncle Prince Harry! The royal redhead might not be able to make it to Charlotte's christening this Sunday—per People, he's likely to leave for his three-month trip to Africa just before the big day— but the rest of the royal and Middleton families are expected to attend. George's seven godparents (and the six spouses among them) attended his christening, and presumably Charlotte's godparents (and their spouses) will be present for hers.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Rev. Justin Welby, presided over George's christening, and he will perform the service at Charlotte's as well. Charlotte's Christening, however, will take place at at St. Mary Magdalene Church at the queen's Sandringham estate in Norfolk.

Let's hope for everyone's sake Charlotte and George are both in a good mood this Sunday for the princess' christening!
