Kate Middleton and Archbishop of Canterbury joke about sleeping Louis

10 July 2018

Britain's Prince Louis, son of Prince William and Kate Middleton-the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge-will be christened today in a private ceremony in London. It will be a busy week, however, for her brother-in-law Prince Harry and new wife Meghan Markle, who were typically affectionate at today's ceremony before their whirlwind trip to Dublin tomorrow.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will attend, along with the Cambridges, Prince Charles and Camilla, the Middleton family and Prince Louis' godparents.

He was baptized at the Chapel Royal on the grounds of St James's Palace in London, just like his older brother George.

Louis is set to wear the same christening gown used by his siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The baby wore a handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, which was made in 1841 for the christening of Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, according to Kensington Palace.

And the Duchess Of Cambridge certainly didn't disappoint on Monday for Prince Louis's big moment.

It was a family affair for the Middletons, who all stepped out on Monday afternoon to celebrate Prince Louis' christening.

'Please join me in praying for him and his family on this special day'.

After the ceremony, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will serve guests christening cake, taken from one of the eight tiers of their seven-year-old wedding cake, at a private tea.

Charlotte, who is three, was christened in 2015 at the 16th-century Church of St Mary Magdalene on the queen's country estate in Sandringham in eastern England.

Prince Louis' godparents most closely reflect the list of Princess Charlotte's godparents as there are no major royals on the list. At first glance Meghan appeared to have styled her hair in her signature bun, but when she left the service with Prince Harry it became apparent that it was actually tied back into a sleek ponytail.

Hannah Carter is also a godmother to Prince Louis.
