Like George in 2013, Louis wore his wearing his finery to the Chapel Royal at St. James Palace; and like with both George and Charlotte, the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby will be performing the christening honors.

This was the Duchess of Sussex's first royal christening.

Prince Louis was christened with water from River Jordan, which was flown in especially for the event.

The christening of Prince Louis will take place inside The Chapel Royal, a location with strong ties to the royal family.


The 11-week-old prince, whose full name is Louis Arthur Charles, was born on April 23 and is fifth in line to the British throne.

Prince Louis, the third child of Britain's Prince William and wife Kate, has been christened at a small, private ceremony overseen by close family but without his great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth.

However, the 92-year-old queen and her husband Prince Philip were not among the guests.

Little baby Louis wore a handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, the palace said, which was made by the queen's longtime dressmaker, Angela Kelly.


It's days like today that make being a mom so special for Kate Middleton.

The UK's Press Association said the decision is understood not to have been taken for health reasons and was mutually agreed by the Queen and Louis' parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, some time ago.

Queen Victoria and Prince Albert Wednesday in the chapel, and the heart of Queen Mary is buried inside. The group ― Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, Lady Laura Meade, Mrs. Robert Carter and Lucy Middleton ― was announced prior to the ceremony, in a statement put out by Kensington Palace.

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.


Prince Louis' godparents most closely reflect the list of Princess Charlotte's godparents as there are no major royals on the list.
