Prince Louis's christening: Royals to gather for baptism at St James's Palace

Prince Louis's christening: Royals to gather for baptism at St James's Palace

Thankfully for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, their youngest son, Prince Louis, was very well behaved during his eagerly anticipated christening, and the 11-week-old stayed fast asleep as his mum carried him into the chapel.

His Royal Highness Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge may be only 2 months old, but it looks as though he's already living like a royal a.k.a. receiving gifts that cost thousands of dollars.

Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, officiated Prince Louis' christening.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex joined Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, Queen Elizabeth, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla at the RAF Centenary where they all attended a Royal Air Force Westminster Abbey service.

Prince Louis' six godparents are all friends and family of Prince William and Middleton: Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, Lady Laura Meade, Mrs. Robert Carter and Lucy Middleton.

Royal babies are baptised in the same intricate cream lace christening gown.

Friday's indictments come ahead of Tuesday's scheduled meeting between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. The statement notes that they began "spearphishing" volunteers and employees of Clinton's campaign, including its chairman.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall - William's father and stepmother - attended the ceremony, as did Catherine's parents, siblings and brother-in-law, according to Kensington Palace.

Unsurprisingly considering her adorable performance at the hospital when she went to meet her little brother, Princess Charlotte stole the show again.

She was recently seen sticking out her tongue at photographers while arriving at Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding in May.

For Prince Louis' ceremony, Kate opted for Alexander McQueen - the same designer to make her wedding dress and other christening outfits, and has always worn a hat too.

The chapel holds tremendous significance for the royal family: Louis' elder brother Prince George was also christened there, and the chapel was where the late Princess Diana's body was laid before her funeral. So we're going to guess the little royals had more fun in their off-site viewing area.

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