Prince Louis's six godparents revealed ahead of christening


Water from the River Jordan will be poured from the Lily Font, a silver baptismal font commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1840, during the baptism.

Crowds at St. James's Palace for the christening of Prince Louis of Cambridge in the Chapel Royal.

The event took place months after the royal wedding and saw the attendance of close-knit members of the family, although Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip couldn't be present.

Another, taken just 22 years later, captures the proud Princess holding her eldest son, Prince Charles, on his own big day in December 1948.

Guy Pelly, renowned high society nightclub founder, will make up the sextet, after moving on from his hedonistic days with Princes William and Harry. As the palace further explains, "the original gown was subsequently worn for all Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren". The new version was made by the Queen's dresser, Angela Kelly.

The decision of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh not to attend the service at the Chapel Royal, St James's Palace, was revealed a few hours before the ceremony.

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.

It meant George became the first future monarch in modern times not to be baptised at Buckingham Palace.

It will be the first time the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children have been seen together.

While many eyes were on the 11-week-old royal baby who has not been seen in public since his birth on April 23, fans of the famous family were also curious to see what Kate would be wearing to such a special occasion.

Princess Charlotte has a reputation for being confident in front of the cameras that follow her and her family everywhere.

The small christening party saw Prince George and Princess Charlotte politely shake hands with the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Dean of Windsor, praised by their father who told them "well done".

Seriously, girl, you've got this whole smile-and-wave thing down to a science (and we can't get enough).

There they would be joined by the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex along with other guests.

Prince Louis has been christened in a private ceremony.
