Little Prince Louis has been christened! The youngest in the brood of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was ushered into the royal family’s faith as he was christened Monday morning in an intimate ceremony with royal family members and close friends.


Prince Louis, who is 11- weeks old, was christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, in the Chapel Royal at St. James’s Palace.

The infant prince wore the historic Honiton lace and white satin gown first worn by James, Viscount Severn, at his christening back in 2008, reports Inside Edition.

The report added that the gown is a replica of the baptismal outfit first worn by Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter, which was passed down for all royal baptisms up until Lady Louise Windsor’s christening in 2004.

The Archbishop took to Twitter to air his delight at the baptism.

“I’m delighted and privileged to be christening Prince Louis today — a precious child made in God’s image, just as we all are,” the Archbishop tweeted. “Please join me in praying for him and his family on this special day.”

Details released by the royal family include the Duke William and Duchess Kate of Cambridge asking six people to act as godparents for Prince Louis.

The three godfathers and three godmothers are all childhood friends and relatives, the Inside Edition report added.

While great-grandma Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip weren’t able to attend due to ‘scheduling conflicts,’ big brother and sister Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 3, were in attendance at the ceremony that lasted a little over 40 minutes.

It’s also the first time the family was seen in public as a family of five, the report added.
Duchess Kate’s sister, Pippa Middleton, attended the ceremony, as did her brother James Middleton; with Prince William’s father and step-mother, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also in attendance.
