Princess Charlotte Tells Press 'You're Not Coming' At Christening

Kate's brother James Middleton, and Kate's pregnant sister Pippa with her husband James Matthews - the brother of former Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews - were also among the guests.

Prince Louis of Cambridge is being christened in the Chapel Royal, watched by his older brother Prince George and big sister Princess Charlotte.

Kensington Palace published details of the Royal christening Monday morning, hours before the service at The Chapel Royal, St. James Palace.

The 11-week-old will be baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, in the palace's Chapel Royal.

Prince William and Kate Middleton's third child, Prince Louis, will be christened today, on 9 July, 2018.

As per usual, the prince's godparents do not include any siblings of Prince William or Kate Middleton, but instead the diverse group features close friends and extended family of the couple, as reported by Entertainment Weekly. William and Kate were to host a private tea afterwards.

Louis' godmothers are Lady Laura Meade, Hannah Carter, and Lucy Middleton. The Queen Mary's Floret Earrings, Her Majesty has been pictured wearing on very special occasions, were gifted to Queen Mary as a wedding gift from Sir William Mackinnon in 1893, and subsequently inherited by the monarch following her death in 1953.


So you can only imagine my glee at seeing all the pics from the christening of Prince Louis of Cambridge.

In addition to similar facial expressions, Princess Charlotte also appears to share similar lips, eyes, and nose as her mom.

Van Cutsem's father was one of Prince Charles's closest friends. As the palace further explains, "the original gown was subsequently worn for all Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren".

The gown Louis worn was created in 2008 by fashion designer and dressmaker Angela Kelly.

They were served slices of cake taken from a tier of William and Catherine's wedding cake, the Palace said.

According to tradition, water from the River Jordan was used at the christening.
