Prince Louis christened at private ceremony

GettyPrince Louis christening The chosen godparents have been announced

The Royal Christening Robe was made in 1841 for the christening of Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Victoria, Princess Royal.

The christening itself is quite the family tradition, Royal Central U.K. notes, adding Prince Louis also wore a replica of the now-famous Honiton lace christening gown.

Following the service, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will give a private tea at Clarence House.

An old friend of Prince William and Prince Harry, the 36-year-old will be attending the christening in London among friends and family of the Duke and Duchess of Cambrige.

Frozen or not, just save us a slice of the royal cake, please.

There they would be joined by the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex along with other guests. Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, Lady Laura Meade, Mrs Robert Carter and Lucy Middleton all agreed to the honor prior to the ceremony. When Prince Louis was born she tickled everyone with her confident waving at cameras as she strolled up the steps of the Lindo Wing.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, also married Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at their wedding last month, and called his forthcoming duty at Prince Louis' christening "very nerve wracking" but also "a great privilege".

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

Kensington Palace said William's father Prince Charles and his wife Camilla would be present along with younger brother Prince Harry and his wife Meghan.

Their mother, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, walked beside them, holding the newly christened Prince Louis.

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

Princess Charlotte has a reputation for being confident in front of the cameras that follow her and her family everywhere.

At the baptism of Prince George in 2013 at the same chapel, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a cream-coloured Alexander McQueen dress with a distinctive ruffle down the chest.
