Prince Louis to be christened by Archbishop of Canterbury on Monday

Just like his siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the young prince will be baptized into the Church of England, the state church of England, of which the queen is Supreme Governor.

Ladbrokes says Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, is unlikely to be asked to guide baby Louis in the Christian faith.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's choice of godparents for their son have been kept under wraps until the day, but there has been speculation that they may choose Prince William's private secretary Miguel Head - who is leaving his role later in the month. In the sweet family photos, a small Kate Middleton wears a handsome white christening gown while her parents and other family and friends smile happily at the event.

It is fitting to see the lovely pictures of Kate Middleton's baptism as her third child's special day approaches. Other people in the running include William's cousins, Peter Phillips, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie or Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor, and his beloved former nanny Tiggy Pettifier - previously Tiggy Legge-Bourke.

The robe is a replica of the intricate lace and satin dress made for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter in 1841.

For Prince George's christening, Prince William's wife opted for a white dress with ruffle detail.

Early on, Louis appeared to be a model baby.

His father said he had "thrice the worry now" when he left hospital with Kate to take the infant home to Kensington Palace.

"Sleeping's going reasonably well so far, so he's behaving himself, which is good", he added.

It has a poignant meaning for the Windsors.
