She’s just like every other mom! While attending her youngest son Prince Louis’ royal christening at the Chapel Royal at St. James’s Palace in London on Monday, July 9, Kate Middleton unexpectedly uttered the most relatable mom comment ever. Seriously, the moment was priceless!
According to People, Kate joked about her snoozing baby son staying asleep while chatting with the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby before the blessing ceremony. When the Archbishop allegedly made a comment about the sleeping child, Kate reportedly quipped, “Let’s hope he stays like this!”
We’re not sure if Louis woke up during his christening ceremony inside the church, but we do know he was the sleepiest Cambridge child at Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis’ royal baptisms. When George, 4, was christened back in October 2013, the tiny tot was wide awake while posing with his mom and dad, Prince William, for photos before the service.
Then, when Charlotte, 3, stepped out for her christening in July 2015, not only was she spotted with her eyes wide open while riding in her stoller during the family’s walk to the church, but she was later photographed having a tiny crying fit outside the chapel. (Charlotte is known for throwing some pretty cute tantrums, after all!)
Though George, Charlotte, and Louis obviously had many blessing day differences, the sibling trio did all wear the same royal christening gown during their baptisms. “Today Prince Louis wore a replica of the Royal Christening Robe which was made in 1841 for the Christening of Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter, Victoria, Princess Royal. The gown was subsequently worn by Prince Louis’ great-grandmother The Queen, grandfather The Prince of Wales, and his father The Duke of Cambridge at their Christenings,” the royal family’s official Instagram account explained. So cool!
