Prince Louis Christened In Front Of Royal Family

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge name Guy Pelly, formerly of East Malling, as one of Prince Louis' godparents Guest list, godparents announced for Prince Louis' christening

The christening came at the start of a busy week for the monarch, who is due to attend celebrations in London marking the centenary of the Royal Air Force Tuesday and to meet US President Donald Trump in Windsor on Friday.

He is also one of Queen Elizabeth II's seven great-grandchildren.

This isn't the first time the young royal's confident personality has come out after she was caught excitedly skipping at a polo event with her mum, Kate Middleton.

His eldest sibling Prince George, 4, clutched his dad Prince William's hand and had his trademark look of vague distaste on his face (god I love this kid) while sister Princess Charlotte, 3, looked mostly confused.

In 2013, Prince Louis' older brother, Prince George, was also christened by Welby at the Chapel Royal.

On Monday just before the christening, the palace confirmed that the gown would be worn by Louis once more to continue the royal tradition. While Harry also wore a blue suit and light blue tie, Meghan opted for an olive Ralph Lauren dress with a matching headpiece and Manolo Blanik pumps.

Prince Louis is the fifth in line to the British throne.

The Cambridges have previously chosen close friends and confidantes for the role. While Princes William and Harry looked smart in coordinating navy blue suits.

Hannah Carter: Formerly Hannah Gillingham, she went to school with Kate at Marlborough College. William was an usher in their wedding and James Meade is godfather to Princess Charlotte.

Princess Charlotte appears to be emulating her mother with a more grown-up hairstyle - wearing her longer locks in a centre parting.

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.

Prince Louis' first godmother is Lady Laura Meade. The stiletto came in a nude shade and paired beautifully with the christening robe - a replica designed by Queen Elizabeth's dressmaker, Angela Kelly - draped over the 11-week-old baby in her arms.
