Royal christening who is Nicholas Van Cutsem

Prince William and Kate Middleton's third child, Prince Louis, will be christened today, on 9 July, 2018. Later this week, she will host President Donald Trump for a meeting at Windsor Castle.

So in 2004 one of Queen Elizabeth's aides was tasked with coming up with a replica to match the original, which required working with a team of expert craftspeople to recreate the garment, hewing as closely as possible to the now-traditional fabrics and design.

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

Kate's younger sister Pippa Middleton and her husband, James Matthews were also present.

The event took place at The Chapel Royal, St. James Palace in London, and even though the Queen missed the service, everyone was "comfortable with the arrangement" said an insider.

Prince Louis' six godparents were also there.


"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". In April he underwent planned hip surgery, but attended the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just a few weeks later, walking unaided. They were joined by Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall. His brother, William van Cutsem, is Prince George's godfather.

They include the Duchess' cousin Lucy Middleton and Guy Pelly, a childhood friend of William's. He helped organize William's bachelor party and is married to an American, Holiday Inn heiress Lizzie Wilson. His mother, Lady Carolyn Herbert, was also close friends with their mother, the late Princess Diana.

Mr. Harry Aubrey-Fletcher attended both Ludgrove prep school and Eton with William.

The Duke and Duchess look so happy - do you have a message of congratulations for the young royal family?

Pippa and her big sister have a similar taste in fashion, as Pippa wore a stunning baby blue Alessandra Rich dress which looked similar to the Alexander McQueen frock that the Duchess wore at her wedding in 2017.

According to tradition, water from the River Jordan was used at the christening. Just after marrying Harry, Meghan surprised us not by continuing to step out in daring, sexier dresses (compared to other royals like uber conservative Kate Middleton, that is) and cool-girl designers like Altuzarra, but instead by taking a sleepier approach.
