Just months after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, Prince Louis‘ christening is finally here. On Monday, July 9, the Kensington Palace Instagram account shared a clip of Kate Middleton, Prince William, Prince Louis, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Charles, Camilla Parker Bowles, and Prince Harry arriving at the special event.
“Members of the Royal Family arrive at the Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace for the christening of Prince Louis,” they captioned the clip of everyone walking into the church. And we must say, we’re huge fans of Kate and Meghan’s looks.
Kensington Palace previously announced the date for William and Kate’s son’s baptism in late June. “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to announce that the christening of Prince Louis will take place on Monday 9th July at The Chapel Royal, St. James’s Palace, London,” a statement on Wednesday, June 20 read. “Prince Louis will be christened by The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby.”
The couple even broke royal tradition with the details of the special event.”The service will begin at 1600hrs and will last approximately 40 minutes,” they shared. So, what was odd about the announcement? The fact that the service is beginning in the late afternoon, unlike the baptisms of George and Charlotte, which were both in the morning hours.
Prince Louis was born on April 23 and has remained out of the spotlight since coming home from the hospital. Aside from a photo of him with his little sister, Princess Charlotte, we haven’t seen much of the newborn. He missed Harry and Meghan’s wedding as well as Trooping the Colour and more royal events the past two months. He looks so cute today!
