Prince Louis' Godparents Compared To Princess Charlotte & Prince George's: The Major Differences

Princess Charlotte looked precious in a blue dress and matching headband while Prince George sported a short-sleeved white shirt and navy shorts.

For the christening of George, Kate and Will's first born, in October 2013, Kate again wore a cream Alexander McQueen coat-dress, this one with a large ruffle down the center of her chest and on her waist.

While it was widely reported that the 36-year-old recycled the look from her daughter's christening at Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding in May, eagle-eyed fans noted subtle differences. The original, retired in order to preserve it, was worn for all royal baptisms since 1841.

He was baptized at the Chapel Royal on the grounds of St James's Palace in London, just like his older brother George.

After the small service, guests were served slices of fruit cake from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding cake. Lady Laura Meade also made the list following on from her husband, James Meade, who is Princess Charlotte's godfather.

Why did William and Kate chose St James's Palace for Louis' christening?

The family of five stepped out for the first time looking picture ideal.




During the ceremony, his seven godparents were also named, including Prince William's cousin Zara Tindall and many of their closest friends. It was a surprising move at Princess Charlotte's christening on July 5, 2015.

Other notable christenings at the church include Princess Charlotte's great-great-grandfather King George VI in 1896.

The Duke of Sussex reportedly purchased a first edition copy of "Winnie-the-Pooh" by AA Milne for his youngest nephew.

Royal christenings are usually private affairs and most royal babies have been christened at royal palaces.

The three-year-old was seen confidently shaking hands with the Archbishop of Canterbury and The Dean of The Chapel Royal, The Right Reverend and Right Honourable the Lord Chartres before heading inside for the ceremony.

It was where the coffin of William's mother Diana lay before her funeral to allow her family to pay their last respects.
