All The Adorable Photos From Prince Louis' Christening


Most recently, Prince George was baptised within the Chapel in 2013 by the same reverend who will officiate Louis' ceremony, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.

Welcome (officially) to the world, little Prince Louis.

Kate Middleton stunned, once again, at the christening of her third child, Louis, in London on July 9.

Queen Elizabeth, 92, has also begun to scale back her duties because of her advancing age, handing over some of her responsibilities to her heir, Prince Charles.

Also attending are Kate's parents, her brother and sister and Louis's six godparents, who are close friends or relatives of William and Kate.

Coach explains Joe Root drop decision as India ODI Series looms
With Rohit at his best, India hardly had to break a sweat as they overhauled the target of 199 with more than an over to spare. In T20 you need players who can manipulate the strike and can keep you in the entire game and that is a skill that Joe has.


Louis will wear the handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, which in 2008 replaced the original which had been worn for all royal christenings since that of Queen Victoria's eldest daughter in 1841. Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were not present at the christening of their sixth great-grandchild Monday afternoon, according to a guest list released by Kensington Palace earlier in the day. Though royal christening's usually occur in Buckingham Palace, the chapel has a special place in the monarchy, having housed several important occasions. Like his siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte before him, Louis will be dressed up in an article of clothing that carries the weight of history.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended Prince Louis' royal christening.

For his godmothers, Prince William and Kate Middleton named Lucy Middleton, who is one of Kate's cousins, Lady Laura Meade, a friend of the family whose husband James is also godfather to Princess Charlotte and Hannah Carter, a college friend of Kate's.

Expected to be in attendance at the christening are Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla, Duchess Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, the Middleton family, and all of the godparents and their spouses.
