Prince Louis Christening date When is Prince Louis Christening

Kate looked radiant as she pushed the vintage Millson pram that her grandmother-in-law the Queen used in the 1950s for her sons Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.

The Cambridges stepped out for the first time ever as a family of five, with Kate carrying her serenely sleeping prince, while dad held the hands of both George and Charlotte.

But just because the Duke and Duchess of Sussex won't be Prince Louis' godparents, doesn't mean they won't play an important role in the infant's life, as they will always be his aunt and uncle. While some fans might have expected Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to be chosen for this role, the newlyweds did not make the cut.

Louis, who was born April 23 in London, will be officially baptized into the Church of England in the traditional christening ceremony on July 9 at the Chapel Royal in St. James's Palace, also in London.

Louis will have six godparents, including close friends and family members of the royal couple. His sister looked sweet as ever in a pretty blue floral print dress, a matching Alice headband and the most adorable blue Mary Jane shoes with white socks.

Rescue workers and troops have been struggling in the mud and water to save lives. "So many people called. Hiroshima prefecture has been severely affected by rains. "This is a situation of extreme danger".

The tradition of this particular christening gown harkens back to Queen Victoria, who commissioned the garment for the royal baptism of her daughter Victoria in 1841; you can glimpse one of its earliest representations in a painting of the event from the era.

Following the service, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are set to give a private tea at Clarence House.

They include Guy Pelly, once dubbed the "court jester" to William and Harry for his wild ways that were often cited as a bad influence on the brothers in their youth, running their favourite drinking haunts.

Prince Charles and Camilla also came out for the christening.

Louis is fifth in the line of succession to the British throne after his grandfather Prince Charles, his father William and his older siblings George and Charlotte.
