The christening of Prince Louis will take place inside The Chapel Royal, a location with strong ties to the royal family.

Also attending are Kate's parents, her brother and sister and Louis's six godparents, who are close friends or relatives of William and Kate.

William and Kate appeared for the first time with their three children at Prince Louis' christening.

Prince Louis had his royal christening on July 9, 2018.

Louis' godparents are a mix of close friends and family members: Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, The Lady Laura Meade and Robert Carter are all friends of the Duke and Duchess' and and Lucy Middleton is Kate's cousin.

However, the decision for them not to attend Louis' baptism at St. James's Palace in London was understood to have been mutually agreed by the sovereign and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge some time ago, and was not health-related.

The Prince has promised to build an exclusive library for Louis in memory of Princess Diana and the 1926 AA Milne classic is the library's first book.

Louis will wear the replica of the royal christening robe, first used in 2008.


Prince Charles and Camilla also came out for the christening. As the palace further explains, "the original gown was subsequently worn for all Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren".

With both fabrics sourced from United Kingdom locations, and a local seamstress chosen to craft the piece, Queen Victoria supported local industries through her fashion choice.

He is one of Queen Elizabeth's seven great-grandchildren.

The Chapel is located within the grounds of St James's Palace, in London, and has been home to many significant royal events throughout history.

What did Princess Charlotte wear?

At his christening on October 23, 2013 at the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace in London, Prince George was dressed up in the newly made replica of the classic Victorian christening gown.
