The Palace also confirmed that Kate Middleton and Prince William's youngest child will wear the handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, made by Angela Kelly, Dressmaker to The Queen.

While she might not have the movie star glamour of her sister-in-law Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton has rarely put a foot wrong when it comes to playing the flawless wife to Prince William, and doting mum to their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Louis' other godparents are: Nicholas van Cutsem, whose family is close to the royals; William's school pal Harry Aubrey-Fletcher; Laura Meade, who is married to William's close friend James Meade; Kate's schoolfriend Hannah Carter; and the duchess's cousin Lucy Middleton.

The Queen and Prince Philip won't attend the christening.

The duchess also wore cream for the christening of her first son, George, sporting a higher-necked dress with a ruffle and leaving her long hair down and loose.

It might have been Prince Louis' christening on Sunday, but there's no denying that his big sister Princess Charlotte stole the show.

Princess Charlotte left royal watchers chuckling when she appeared to issue a stern warning to photographers at her brother's christening.


The Palace also announced that the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would all be in attendance.

It was the first time the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children have been seen together as a family of five.

For both Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte's christenings, Kate opted to accompany the look with a low bun, however for Prince George's she wore her hair loose.

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, and the Middleton's parents and siblings all attended the service. Something about the not-quite-perfect hair 'do made Meghan more approachable-one of us, even.

Those names may not sound familiar to the public, but they are notable people in the royal family's lives.

The private ceremony is expected to last around 40 minutes, but the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will not be among the attendees.

The candid moment was shared on Instagram in a now-viral video by hrhprincgeorge, a popular fan account for Prince George and the British royal family.
