Prince Louis to be christened next month

Prince Louis to be christened next month

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, will conduct the christening.at the Chapel Royal, St James's Palace, London.

With Prince William in the Middle East on official duties at the end of June, his christening is likely to fall some time in July.

Royal watchers have already been treated to some photos of newborn Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte together, in images taken by mum Kate Middleton.

The Prince was born Louis Arthur Charles at 11.01am on 23 April at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington weighing 8lbs 7oz.

The family event is sure to make for some memorable moments, especially with his older siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who regularly steal the show with their cuteness.

Prince George's christening took place in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace in October 2013, five months after he was born.

George was three months old when he was baptised, while Charlotte was only nine weeks. "His big sister, Lady Louise Windsor, had been the last royal to wear the original gown", the site notes.

The move was a significant nod to William Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth's role as head of the Church of England. The original garment was created for Queen Victoria for the christening of her eldest daughter, Princess Royal Victoria, but is now considered too fragile for use.

Charlotte's baptism in 2015 involved the Cambridge family walking to church past well-wishers.

Prince William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have named their third child.

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