"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 Monday. Welby recently officiated at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, on May 19.

Prince Louis was christened with water from River Jordan, which was flown in especially for the event.

The 11-week-old prince, whose full name is Louis Arthur Charles, was born on April 23 and is fifth in line to the British throne.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were missing from the small family affair.

Britain's Prince Louis, son of Prince William and Kate Middleton-the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge-will be christened today in a private ceremony in London. Prior to the christening William and Kate announced six friends and family members to be Louis' godparents.

Croatia ends Russia's run in shootout
Croatia will now head to Moscow where they take on England in the second semifinal to be played on Wednesday, July 11. Nicknamed "the Fiery Ones", that team has stood as an example to their successors ever since.

The Queen and Prince Philip won't attend the christening.

Prince Louis now sits at fifth in line to take the throne after his grandfather Prince Charles, father Prince William, big brother Prince George and big sister Princess Charlotte.

Prince Louis was carried into the chapel by his beaming mother, wearing the handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, which in 2008 replaced the original which had been worn for all royal christenings since that of Queen Victoria's eldest daughter in 1841.

The Chapel is located within the grounds of St James's Palace, in London, and has been home to many significant royal events throughout history. Buckingham Palace said their busy week of engagements, not health problems, was the reason, according to the Press Association.

Expected to be in attendance at the christening are Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla, Duchess Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, the Middleton family, and all of the godparents and their spouses. The three godmothers are Hannah Gillingham-one of Kate's school friends-cousin Lucy Middleton and Laura Meade, wife of Prince William's friend James Meade, who is Princess Charlotte's godfather.
