Prince Louis's Christening Shares a Date With Another Important Royal Event

Prince Louis's Christening Shares a Date With Another Important Royal Event

The 11-week-old, who is fifth in line to the throne, will be baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace.

Pippa Middleton flaunted her growing baby bump in an elegant summer dress while braving the crowds at Wimbledon with her brother James.

The young prince will wear the same christening gown that his siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte wore for their baptisms.

There is speculation that William's outgoing private secretary, Miguel Head, could be chosen to perform the role. The children's nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo is also thought to be on hand in her traditional Norland uniform to look after the young royals during the 40-minute church service, just as she took charge of the bridesmaids and pageboys at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's royal wedding in May.

When Prince William and Kate Middleton were choosing a date for this important event, it's likely their main reason for picking July 9 was that it fit the busy schedules of those involved, but it actually has a very sweet royal significance, too.

She wasn't concerned because it's not unusual to hear the lions overnight, so she brushed off the commotion. An axe and three pairs of shoes and gloves were found later when police and an anti-poaching unit arrived.

In the sweet family photos, a small Kate Middleton wears a attractive white christening gown while her parents and other family and friends smile happily at the event.

Here are 13 times Kate Middleton and Princess Charlotte had the flawless mother-daughter style.

His brother Prince George was christened at a similar time, and was baptised about 13 weeks after he was born on October 23, 2013. The intricate, cream-coloured lace gown is a replica of the one worn by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's eldest daughter, Victoria, during her baptism.

The Queen's first great-grandchild Savannah Phillips weighed 8lb 8oz in 2010, and the newest addition to the Windsors, Zara Tindall's daughter Lena, born last month, weighed 9lb 3oz.

Pippa's pregnancy circulated when her sister was due to give birth to Prince Louis. His son Louis, the third child of the family, was born this spring.
