Inside Prince Louis' Christening at The Chapel Royal

Inside Prince Louis' Christening at The Chapel Royal

Kate looked radiant as she pushed the vintage Millson pram that her grandmother-in-law the Queen used in the 1950s for her sons Prince Andrew and Prince Edward. For her daughter Charlotte's christening on July 5, 2015, Kate wore a attractive white coat by Alexander McQueen and a white fascinator by Jane Taylor - a similar look by the same designers.

Kate's sister Pippa is expecting her first child.

Prince George, who will turn five next week, and Princess Charlotte, three, looked adorable as always as they accompanied their parents and new sibling to the private service.

Royal observes also believe that Kate's decision to wear white or cream at the Christening of Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and now Prince Louis is because the colours perfectly complement the Royal Christening gown, worn by all three children. Older brother Prince George walked in holding Prince William's other hand, while Duchess Kate carried their baby brother in his heirloom lace christening gown.

The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby welcomed the royals at the entrance to the chapel.

Prince Louis was born on April 23 and is fifth in line to the British throne.

Cheeky Princess Charlotte tells photographers 'You're not coming!'
As you may be aware, Prince Louis was christened yesterday and the royal event was the source of much media attention. Following the service, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will give a private tea at Clarence House .

Instead, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose close friends and extended family members to be Louis' godparents.

Nightclub owner Guy Pelly is set to become one of six godparents to Prince Louis today. Van Cutsem is one of four brothers who have been close to William and Harry since they were little. Carter is a college friend of Kate's, and she and her husband Robert live in the county of Norfolk near Anmer Hall, William and Kate's country home.

She was dressed in another Peter Pan-collared dress, similar to the blue frock she wore at the christening on Monday.

Harry Aubrey-Fletcher: He went to Ludgrove School and Eton with William and his father is the Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire.

Princess Charlotte appears to be emulating her mother with a more grown-up hairstyle - wearing her longer locks in a centre parting.

'I remember the Battle of Britain being fought in the skies above us and we shall never forget the courage and sacrifice of that time, ' she added, referring to the decisive encounter between the air forces of Britain and Nazi Germany over southern England in 1940.
