Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announce date for Prince Louis' Christening

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announce date for Prince Louis' Christening

Both George and Charlotte were both also baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Who will christen Prince Louis?

Little Louis will likely be christening in the same gown his siblings wore on their big day - a replica of the historic royal christening gown first worn by Queen Victoria's daughter, also named Victoria, in 1841.

The mother-of-three is taking time off from royal engagements in order to spend time with her sons and Princess Charlotte, three. It's the same place Prince George was baptized, but Princess Charlotte's was held at St. Mary Magdalene Church at the Queen's Sandringham estate in Norfolk, according to BBC News.

Royal fans are set to get their first glimpse of the newest member of the Cambridge clan, with the announcement of Prince Louis's Christening.

His outfit was nearly identical to that of William's as he was taken to meet baby Harry for the first time.

The trio were cheered on by congregating crowds of well-wishers.

His brother Prince George was christened at a similar time, and was baptised about 13 weeks after he was born on October 23, 2013.

"Judging by the previous christenings, and the importance of the day for the family, Louis' christening will be a private affair, perhaps no surprise there". Ahead of the wedding, Welby baptized Meghan.

"The Cambridges are well aware of the media spotlight on and interest in their family - we saw that with the recent photos of Prince George and Princess Charlotte playing at the polo match".
