The youngest son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge, was christened on 9th July 2018 at the Chapel Royal in St. James' Palace in London. Attending the royal baby's big day were his parents Prince William and Kate Middleton, and his siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who were cutely dressed in co-ordinating blue, as the family of five made their first public appearance for the special occasion.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were also present, as well as other members of the family and close friends –although, sadly Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip were not in attendance for their great-grandson's christening.
Watch below as family, friends and baby Prince Louis arrive at the Chapel Royal.
The christening was an intimate ceremony performed by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, and after the christening the family travelled to Clarence House for official photographs and a private tea reception hosted by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Guests were served a slice of wedding cake from Kate and William’s royal wedding, which took place seven years ago!
