Queen Elizabeth Reportedly Taking Meghan Markle's Side In Her Feud With Kate Middleton

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.

After being worn by 62 royal babies, including Queen Elizabeth II and Prince William, the gown was deemed too fragile to wear, so a replica was created to continue the tradition.

Kensington Palace said William's father Prince Charles and his wife Camilla would be present along with younger brother Prince Harry and his wife Meghan.

The Archbishop of Canterbury welcomed the royals, bending down to greet George and Charlotte, at the entrance to the chapel.

Prince Louis will be christened later in a private ceremony in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace. A royal source said it had been agreed some time ago that the queen would not attend and her absence was not due to any health issues.

Prince Louis will be christened in the Lily Font, a silver gilt font and bowl decorated in lilies, ivy and cherubs.

As Kate chatted to the archbishop while holding Louis, she could be heard describing her sleeping son as "very relaxed and peaceful". Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, wore an army green Ralph Lauren dress and hat by Stephen Jones.

This is the first time the family of five has been seen as a full unit in public, People reported.

Louis' godparents are a mix of close friends and family members: Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, The Lady Laura Meade and Robert Carter are all friends of the Duke and Duchess' and and Lucy Middleton is Kate's cousin.

There for the ceremony were Louis's grandfather the Prince of Wales, step-grandmother the Duchess of Cornwall and maternal grandparents Carole and Michael Middleton.

Also attending were Kate's parents, her brother and sister and Louis's six godparents, who are close friends or relatives of William and Kate.
