Prince Louis to be christened in July

Posted June 21, 2018

Prince Louis will be seen in public for the first time since his birth, and just like his big brother Prince George, he'll be baptized at The Chapel Royal at St James's Palace in London.

With Prince William in the Middle East on official duties at the end of June, his christening is likely to fall some time in July.

He is the youngest brother of Prince George and Princess Charlotte and is fifth in line to the British throne.

'Prince Louis will be christened by The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby'.

Kensington Palace announced Wednesday that Prince Louis, the third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, will be christened on July 9.

Louis will be wearing the same cream lace and satin gown worn by George and Charlotte.

Christenings are a must for royal babies. Understandably, the gown had some wear and tear, so babies since then have used a replica commissioned by Queen Elizabeth, pictured below on Princess Charlotte.

Charlotte's baptism in 2015 involved the Cambridge family walking to church past well-wishers.

In keeping with royal tradition, Prince Louis will be baptized at the age of three months old. William and Catherine have picked mainly friends rather than royal relatives as godparents to their older two children, George, 4, and Charlotte, 3.

The Queen, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall are set to attend.

Royal fans are set to get their first glimpse of the newest member of the Cambridge clan, with the announcement of Prince Louis's Christening.

Ahead of her wedding, Meghan was herself christened and confirmed in the Chapel Royal by the Archbishop, who also married the couple last month.
