Prince Louis christening: Queen and Duke of Edinburgh to miss event

10 July 2018

The Duchess of Cambridge holds Prince Louis, while Prince William holds the hands of Prince George and Princess Charlotte as they arrive for Prince Louis' christening service at the Chapel Royal, St James's Palace, London.

But three-year-old Charlotte was caught in a sassy moment as she told off photographers as Kate Middleton, Prince William, Prince George and Prince Louis left the chapel.

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

It will be the first time the new family of five will be seen together in the public.

His six godparents were announced as: Nicholas van Cutsem; Guy Pelly; Harry Aubrey-Fletcher; The Lady Laura Meade; Mrs Robert Carter; and Miss Lucy Middleton.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte have stolen the show at their brother's christening, playing up to the waiting media outside The Chapel Royal.

Prince Harry and Meghan Duchess of Sussex at the christening of Prince Louis at the Chapel Royal, St. James's Palace.

Yesterday was the day young Prince Louis got christened.

Louis is fifth in the line of succession to the British throne after his grandfather Prince Charles, his father William and his older siblings George and Charlotte. Instead, it is the Queen's busy schedule that kept her away from the event, but her absence was a mutual decision between the monarch, Prince William, and Kate Middleton. She's 92, you know.

While it was widely reported that the 36-year-old recycled the look from her daughter's christening at Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding in May, eagle-eyed fans noted subtle differences.

The cheeky pair, who welcomed little brother Prince Louis in April, were spotted at the window of Buckingham Palace watching the RAF 100 flypast at around 1pm.

Will and Kate chose two hymns, two lessons and two anthems for the christening. All yes were of course on little Louis, but also on Charlotte's gorgeous little outfit which consisted of a baby blue dress, matching shoes and the cutest bow hairband by Pepa & Co.
