What really happened at Prince Louis' Royal Christening

What really happened at Prince Louis' Royal Christening

Prince William was an RAF search-and-rescue pilot, while his brother, Harry, served as an air traffic controller and helicopter pilot with the Army Air Corps - serving two tours of duty in Afghanistan. The royal has previously worn the earrings at formal occasions including the Garter Day ceremony and the State Opening of Parliament, and on Monday Kate sported pearl versions of the stunning design at her son's christening.

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

Bride's close friend Priyanka Chopra (R) attended the ceremony with Markle's "Suits" co-star Abigail Spencer.

Prince Louis, who snoozed peacefully through proceedings, appeared to know he was in safe hands.

Per royal tradition, Prince William will inherit his father's title, Prince of Wales, when Charles takes over the throne.

While attending her little brother Prince Louis' christening on Monday, Princess Charlotte was caught on camera delivering a stern message to photographers.

"She loved all the old classics and Harry had the brilliant idea of starting a little library of first editions for Louis, Charlotte and George to enjoy as they get older".

South Africa's Erik van Rooyen began the day with a four-shot lead but struggled to a 74 to finish alongside Rahm on 12 under. Not wanting to miss out, Knox hit a monster birdie to take a share of the four way lead.


Princes Harry and William were always fond of English author Alan Alexander Milne (known as A.A. Milne professionally), so a book about Pooh Bear sounded like the right way to start the first-editions library.

In April, she delighted fans when she accompanied her father and brother to the Lindo Wing to meet Prince Louis for the first time and began waving as soon as she stepped out of the family vehicle. I think you'll be just fine.

Pelly, who married Elizabeth Wilson in 2014, will now have his chance, trusted with a reading of Ephesians 3: 14-19 at the christening.

The christening took place at Chapel Royal at St James's Palace.

All the royal ladies in attendance-including the Duchesses of Cornwall, Cambridge and Sussex, as well as a couple of stray Middletons-stepped out wearing their Sunday best, and there were several stand-out looks.

Following the service, guests were invited to a private tea at Clarence House, home to Prince Charles and his wife Camilla.
