Prince Louis' Christening Details Announced By Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge

It will be at a different chapel to Princess Charlotte's.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s third child Prince Louis will be christened at 4pm today [Monday 9 July].

The ceremony will take place at The Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace, in London. The 11-week-old, who is fifth in line to the throne, will be christened by The Archbishop of Canterbury, Reverend Justin Welby.

Prince George, four, and three-year-old Princess Charlotte will be there for their younger brother’s big day. It will be the first time the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children have been seen together as a family of five.

He will reportedly be dressed in the same cream gown used for George and Charlotte. The robe is a replica of the lace and satin dress made for Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter in 1841.

Prince Louis’ godparents, who will be announced on the day, will take part in the 40-minute traditional religious ceremony.
