Prince Louis' christening to be held at Chapel Royal on July 9

It's the same spot that Prince George had his big day - although Princess Charlotte's was at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham. "Obviously events such as Meghan and Harry's wedding and Trooping the Colour were exceptions and Louis is expected to be christened in the summer".

He was presented with satchels for Charlotte and her brothers Prince George, four, and two-month-old Prince Louis during a visit to Liverpool earlier this week. Traditionally, royal baptisms have been a time for lovely family photos, which means brothers George and Louis will be pictured alongside each other for the first time ever.

"We'll no doubt have the official christening photos, as we did with Prince George and Princess Charlotte", he continued.

Kensington Palace said Wednesday that Louis will be baptized in a private service at the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace in London.


According to Fitzwilliams, Prince Harry and Markle's attendance in the event is already a representation for the royal family. His parents Princess Diana of Wales and Prince Charles kept the young Duke polished as a child - as you would expect for a boy who was set to someday inherit the thrown.

July the 9th, 2018- the day of Prince Louis' christening, will also mark the anniversary of the Queen and Prince Philip's engagement in 1947, exactly 71 years earlier.

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