Britain's Prince Louis christened without Queen

Royal christening who is Nicholas Van Cutsem

As per usual, the prince's godparents do not include any siblings of Prince William or Kate Middleton, but instead the diverse group features close friends and extended family of the couple, as reported by Entertainment Weekly.

The Duchess joined William, along with Prince Charles and Camilla and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex - who were all present at yesterday's christening.

Prince Louis has been christened during a 40-minute service at the Chapel Royal at St James' Palace in London.

From the duchess's side, Kate's parents Michael and Carole, brother James, pregnant sister Pippa and her husband James Matthews were there. Look familiar? It should, as it's the same Alexander McQueen design she wore three times before in a creamy white shade for Prince Harry's and Meghan Markle's wedding in May, Trooping the Colour in 2017 and Princess Charlotte's christening in 2015.

Prince Louis was christened yesterday at St James's Palace by Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Thankfully for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Louis was very well behaved during his eagerly anticipated christening, and the 11-week-old stayed fast asleep as his mum carried him into the chapel.




Welby will use the Lily Font, commissioned by queen Victoria for the baptism of her first child in 1841. The christening cake served at the tea is a tier taken from William and Kate's eight-tier wedding cake.

Cutest expected participants: Brother Prince George, third in line to the throne, who turns 5 on July 22, and sister Charlotte, 3, the fourth in line.

When Prince Louis is baptised on Monday at the Chapel Royal, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to keep to convention. Meanwhile the design, although reminiscent of a lady's flowing dress (and reportedly made to reflect Queen Victoria's own wedding gown), was considered unisex and graced both male and female babies.

William was holding Prince George and Princess Charlotte by the hand and could be heard to encourage them as they made their way to the chapel.

Louis will have three godfathers as well; Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly and Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, all longtime friends of William.
