Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announce date for Prince Louis' Christening

Royal baby latest

The duke and duchess confirmed the service would take place on July 9 at the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace, London.

It's the quickest christening out of all of the Duke and Duchess' children.

George was also christened in the Chapel Royal, but Charlotte was baptised at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham.

Louis was born at the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in London's Paddington, on St George's Day.

He will wear a cream lace and satin gown also used for the christenings of his elder siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Kensington Palace, which oversees events for the Prince and his wife Kate Middleton, shared a photo of William at a black tie event, captioned: "Happy birthday to the Duke of Cambridge!" James, Viscount Severn, was the first baby to wear the new outfit at his christening in 2008.

Born on April 23, His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge is fifth in line to the throne, and the sixth great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth.

His next public appearance is likely to be his christening, for which no public date has been announced.

Last month, the prince, who is president of the FA, had to miss the FA Cup final to fulfil best man duties at his brother Harry's wedding.

According to Fitzwilliams, Prince Harry and Markle's attendance in the event is already a representation for the royal family.

Christenings are a must for royal babies.

George's christening at the same venue in October 2013 was an intimate occasion, with only 23 guests attending. His parents Princess Diana of Wales and Prince Charles kept the young Duke polished as a child - as you would expect for a boy who was set to someday inherit the thrown.
