From the duchess's side, Kate's parents Michael and Carole, brother James, pregnant sister Pippa and her husband James Matthews were there.

According to sources, when the Royal Family greeted the Archbishop of Canterbury he was pleased to see Louis looking, "very relaxed and peaceful".

"A "feu de joie" (ceremonial gunfire) and a spectacular fly-past of RAF aircraft past and present illustrated the history and might of the Royal Air Force and showed just how far its aircraft have evolved in the past century", the royal family's website states.

To hear more about what happened at the royal christening - including Charlotte's sassy quip to photographers and the meaning behind Meghan's khaki dress - listen to the latest episode of New Idea Royals.

"I'm delighted and privileged to be christening Prince Louis today - a precious child made in God's image, just as we all are", Archbishop Justin Welby said on Twitter before the ceremony.

"She loved all the old classics and Harry had the brilliant idea of starting a little library of first editions for Louis, Charlotte and George to enjoy as they get older". People cheered as the handsome Markle walked down the aisle accompanied by Prince Charles and 10 young page boys and bridesmaids, while Harry waited in a dark formal military dress.

And William's first day at Jane Mynor's nursery school went went swimmingly, the young prince returning home with a finger mouse and his Postman Pat thermos.

Louis' baptism comes after it was recently revealed he will have no less than six godparents, who are all friends or family of Their Royal Highnesses.

The woman of the hour, Catherine, Duchess of Sussex, continued her tradition of wearing cream to all her children's christenings in Alexander McQueen.

The christening took place at Chapel Royal at St James's Palace.

The Duchess of Cambridge took the gorgeous look out of storage in the summer of 2016 for one of the Queen's famous garden parties at Buckingham Palace, though this time she wore a nude pump.

Following the 40-minute service, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge gave a private tea at Clarence House.
