Prince Louis was last seen shortly after his birth in April when he was taken home by his parents, Kate Middleton and Prince William, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

This is one of the few photographs of the little prince.

And the christening itself is quite the family tradition, Royal Central U.K. notes, adding Prince Louis will also wear a replica of the now-famous Honiton lace christening gown.

The Royal Family Instagram account shared a photo of William with his grandmother the Queen, 92, with a similar celebratory message.


The tot will be baptised on July 9 at the Chapel Royal of St James's Palace in central London. Meghan and Harry jet off to Dublin for their two-day visit the day after the christening, so it's also flawless timing for the newlyweds.

While the two-month-old royal will be christened in the same church as his older brother George, his sister Charlotte's ceremony took place in Sandringham's St Mary Magdalene church in Norfolk, Brides reports.

The Duke of Cambridge has said Princess Charlotte will be "obsessed" with a pretty pink satchel gifted during a recent visit to Liverpool. It's also likely that Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie will make an appearance, along with Charles' wife, Camilla.

Prince William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have named their third child.


George's christening at the same venue in October 2013 was an intimate occasion, with only 23 guests attending.

Born on April 23, His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge is fifth in line to the throne, and the sixth great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth.
