Prince William and Duchess Kate christen third child Prince Louis

Prince William and Duchess Kate christen third child Prince Louis

Princess Charlotte, Prince William, Prince George arrive at the Chapel Royal at St James' Palace as Kate Middleton carries Prince Louis, who is christened on July 9, 2018.

Prince George and 3-year-old Princess Charlotte as well as Kate's parents Michael and Carole, her brother, James and sister Pippa were also in attendance.

As she exited the church following Louis's christening, holding hands with her dad Prince William, she cast a somewhat concerned glance at the group of photographers watching them.

The godparents included Hannah Carter, a school friend of the Duchess, and Lady Laura Meade, who is married to Prince William's friend and Princess Charlotte's godfather, James.

Thankfully for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, their youngest son, Prince Louis, was very well behaved during his eagerly anticipated christening, and the 11-week-old stayed fast asleep as his mum carried him into the chapel.

Those who met them said that they praised Belfast people saying that they were "so friendly and warm".

The Duke and Duchess look so happy - do you have a message of congratulations for the young royal family?

The Queen and Prince Phillip will not be attending the event, as Her Majesty is travelling back from Norfolk today.

Being the best big sister to Prince Louis she could be, little Charlotte chose to take a pamphlet from Prince Louis's christening with her as a souvenir.

Prince Louis is fifth in line to the throne.

The gesture comes nearly two months after the princess gave a little wave to the world on the steps of St George's Chapel at the royal wedding in May. Alexander McQueen has previously designed Kate's wedding dress as well as ensembles for the previous two christenings as well. For her daughter Charlotte's christening on July 5, 2015, Kate wore a attractive white coat by Alexander McQueen and a white fascinator by Jane Taylor - a similar look by the same designers. After their wedding on May 19 at Windsor Castle, Harry and Meghan made their balcony debut together in June for the annual Trooping the Colour ceremonies marking the Queen's official birthday.
