The Royal Family gathered at The Chapel Royal in the grounds of St James’s Palace on Monday for the christening of Prince Louis.
The third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was baptised into the Church of England, by The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby.
At just 11 weeks old, Prince Louis slept through much of the service and looked adorable while doing so dressed in a handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, made by Angela Kelly, Dressmaker to The Queen.

A number of special guests were invited to witness the historic moment, including The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Just before the ceremony, the Royal Family released a list of the Prince’s six godparents, all of whom are friends or family of Their Royal Highnesses. They include: Mr. Nicholas van Cutsem, Mr. Guy Pelly, Mr. Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, The Lady Laura Meade, Mrs. Robert Carter and Miss Lucy Middleton.
Following the service, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hosted a private tea at Clarence House where invited guests were served slices of christening cake, which is a tier taken from The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding cake.
Adorable images and video of the Royal Family making their way to the service have since been shared on social media for us all to enjoy.
At his christening, Prince Louis wore a handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, made by Angela Kelly, Dressmaker to The Queen – the original Royal Christening Robe, of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was made in 1841 for the christening of Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter, Victoria, Princess Royal ?PA
