Here's the first look of Prince Louis at his royal christening

His parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, his siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, his grandparents, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall were in attendance among others.

Prior to the RAF celebration, Middleton was seen in public at Prince Louis' christening on Monday.

As for Prince Louis's christening, it will be performed by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the same bishop who christened Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

In the morning, Queen Elizabeth, Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Charles, and Camilla all attended a service honoring the milestone at Westminster Abbey in London.

Louis was dressed in a cream, frilly lace royal christening gown - a replica of the intricate robe made for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter in 1841.

According to Kensington Palace, the couple named several of their closest friends along with a few distant relatives as the prince's godparents including Mr. Nicholas van Cutsem, Mr. Guy Pelly, Mr. Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, The Lady Laura Meade, Mrs. Robert Carter, and Miss Lucy Middleton. Kate Middleton went with an icy blue dress by her go-to designer, Alexander McQueen, and a hat by Sean Barrett.




Kate Middleton stunned, once again, at the christening of her third child, Louis, in London on July 9.

"You're not coming", the 3-year-old royal told waiting members of the media Monday after her little brother's baptism at St. James' Palace.

When the royal family got together yesterday, sans Queen Elizabeth, for Prince Louis's christening, all eyes were obviously on the little man of the hour.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte holding onto their father Prince William\'s hands as they leave the chapel.

She was recently seen sticking out her tongue at photographers while arriving at Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding in May. Kate looked happy and at ease during one of her rare official appearances since the birth of Prince Louis.

The final guests were the young prince's six godparents and their spouses, all of whom are friends or family of the Duke and Duchess.
