Prince Louis Christening date When is Prince Louis Christening

Traditionally, royal christenings usually occur in Buckingham Palace, but for Prince Louis the royal parents chose St James's Palace in London.

According to a Pop Sugar report, not only does Princess Charlotte look like her mom, the Duchess of Cambridge, but the little girl also looks like her paternal great-grandma (granny?), Queen Elizabeth II.

The Queen and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, didn't attend the christening, but it was a decision made "some time ago" and wasn't due to health reasons.

Meghan opted for an olive ensemble for Monday's christening of nephew Prince Louis, her first royal baptism since marrying Prince Harry.

Following the service, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are set to give a private tea at Clarence House.

And just yesterday, the Duchess of Sussex attended Prince Louis' christening wearing a deep green bespoke Ralph Lauren draped dress-paired with a low, slick ponytail.

Queen Elizabeth, 92, has also begun to scale back her duties because of her advancing age, handing over some of her responsibilities to her heir, Prince Charles.

In 2015, his sister Princess Charlotte was christened at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, a royal estate near England's eastern coast.

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the spiritual leader of the world's Anglicans, lead the service in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace.

Instead, Prince William's friends Nicholas van Cutsem, fellow Etonian Harry Aubrey-Fletcher and nightclub owner Guy Pelly will serve as godfathers.

Royal babies are baptised in the same intricate cream lace christening gown. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were behind them.

It was also revealed Monday that the Duke and Duchess had chosen two hymns, two lessons and two anthems for the christening.

He was set to wear the same gown worn by his older siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

It's not the first time the three-year-old has been spotted in the boutique brand; both she and Prince George were kitted out in the same designer for the wedding of Pippa Middleton and James Matthews.
