The third child of Prince William and wife Kate was christened Monday at a royal chapel.

Princess Charlotte and Prince George hold the hands of their father Prince William while Kate, Duchess of Cambridge holds Prince Louis as they arrive for his christening service.

The Duchess of Cambridge looked lovely in a white dress holding Prince Louis, who was swathed in the same historic gown his siblings wore for their christening ceremonies.

Prince Louis godparents are Lady Laura Meade, Hannah Carter, Lucy Middleton, Nicholas van Cutsem, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher and Guy Pelley.

Kensington Palace released further details about the christening today, including who will be attending and Prince Louis' godparents. She also wore her hair in a low chignon, topped with a white, flowered headpiece.

Prince William and Kate Middleton opted for "O Jesus, I have Promised" and "Lord of All Hopefulness" as the hymns for the christening ceremony.
