Prince Louis christened while beaming royal family look on

Prince George and Princess Charlotte

Prince George and Princess Charlotte

It's likely that Louis will have five godparents, as does Princess Charlotte, whereas Prince George, a future king, has seven.

Kate Middleton's internal fashion mantra lately: "When it's right, it's right".

The christening of Prince Louis was held in the Chapel Royal at London's St James's Palace on Monday afternoon and the royal family looked in great spirits - and totally stylish - for the special event.

The day began with a service at Westminster Abbey followed by a speech by Queen Elizabeth II at the Buckingham Palace.

The retired actress was seen looking to her husband for reassurance as she joined senior royals, and was spotted nervously fidgeting with her hair.

Kate Middleton went with an icy blue dress by her go-to designer, Alexander McQueen, and a hat by Sean Barrett.

China vows to 'fight back' after U.S. threaten $200bn tariffs on goods
The Trump administration announced plans to levy tariffs on another $200 billion of Chinese goods as trade tensions escalate. High-level talks between the two countries starting in May failed to deliver a breakthrough to head off a trade war.

All the royal ladies in attendance-including the Duchesses of Cornwall, Cambridge and Sussex, as well as a couple of stray Middletons-stepped out wearing their Sunday best, and there were several stand-out looks.

But while all eyes were on the outfits of her grandsons' wives, Duchess Kate and Duchess Meghan, HELLO! noticed something unusual about the Monarch's footwear.

"I'm delighted and privileged to be christening Prince Louis today - a precious child made in God's image, just as we all are", Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said on Twitter.

So Uncle Harry and Auntie Meghan bought a first edition Winnie-the -Pooh for Prince Louis to mark the occasion at the royal price tag of $10k.

Prince William and Prince Harry were decked out in their military finest. Pelly is a longtime friend of both William and Kate, and he was the one who planned William's bachelor party. Guests will be served slices of christening cake, which is a tier taken from The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding cake, which was designed by Fiona Cairns.

Elsewhere, Sophie Carter - who already acts as a godmother for three-year-old Princess Charlotte - is among the list, and so is Lucy Middleton, a cousin of the Duchess.
