Coo-ee Louis: Baby Prince to be christened

Coo-ee Louis: Baby Prince to be christened

After Meghan Markle confirmed her father Thomas won't attend the wedding, Prince Charles offered to walk the bride down the aisle.

While proud parents Prince William and Duchess Kate made a dapper duo, the proud mother of three turning once again to Alexander McQueen and Jane Taylor for her look, it was their kids - Prince George and Princess Charlotte - who took home the award for cutest coordinated siblings!

Nightclub owner Guy Pelly is set to become one of six godparents to Prince Louis today.

Prince Louis wore the same christening robe that his elder brother and sister wore to their christenings.

The newest addition to the royal family (if you don't count Meghan of course) was christened in the Royal Chapel at St James' Palace.

Prince Louis, the youngest son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, has been christened in a private ceremony.

Prince Louis of Cambridge's christening this week was steeped in tradition - from his elaborate gown to the lily font that's been used in the baptism of royal babies for nearly 200 years.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge started their own tradition when it came to christening their children, making the "personal decision" to have their first child, Prince George, baptised at the intimate Chapel Royal at St James's Palace.

Mrs Carter is a schoolfriend of the Duchess, while Miss Middleton, a solicitor, is her cousin.

The 11-week-old Prince wore the Honiton lace and white christening robe that was also worn by Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

She kept her eye on the press pack as she and the rest of the family headed off for a private afternoon tea at Clarence House. A royal source said it had been agreed some time ago that the queen would not attend and her absence was not due to any health issues. Louis was born on April 23 - St. George's Day, England's national day - at St Mary's Hospital in central London weighing eight pounds and seven ounces (3.8 kilogrammes).
