Despite still being on maternity leave after giving birth to Prince Louis only 11 weeks ago, it is understood her mother Kate felt it was "important" to attend today's celebrations.

In addition to the cake, Prince Louis's christening gown was also recycled.

Will and Kate chose two hymns, two lessons and two anthems for the christening.

While it was widely reported that the 36-year-old recycled the look from her daughter's christening at Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding in May, eagle-eyed fans noted subtle differences.

Other notable guests there to toast Prince Louis were Prince Charles and Camilla, Kate's parents Carole and Michael Middleton, her sister Pippa and her husband James Matthews, and hot bearded Middleton brother James.
