All the Details on Kate Middleton's Look for Prince Louis' Christening

Lora Ball | 10 July, 2018, 18:48

The Cambridges have previously chosen close friends and confidantes for the role.

Britain's Prince Louis of Cambridge, the baby son of Prince William and his wife Kate, was christened yesterday but Queen Elizabeth II did not attend.

The 92-year-old monarch has a busy week ahead, marked by a visit from US President Donald Trump in Windsor on Friday.

Lady Laura Meade will Godmother to Prince Louis.

Royal christenings are usually private affairs and most royal babies have been christened at royal palaces.

Charlotte wore a pretty sleeveless floral sundress in pink, and she wore the same shoes as George, but in a cute pastel pink.

Now, all three of the Cambridge children have been christened in small, private ceremonies at the same venue, which holds special resonance for the family.

BBC reports that Middleton was overheard saying Louis was "very relaxed and peaceful", and joked to the archbishop that she hopes "he stays like this".
