Happy 36th birthday, Prince William!

Details of the godparents are yet to be announced but it's thought Prince Harry and new bride Meghan Markle won't get called up to the duty.

In fact, the Duchess of Cambridge appears to regularly match Charlotte's outfits to her own, particularly at official events.

"Kate is on maternity leave reportedly until October", royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told Express.

The announcement comes days after speculation that his Christening would happen between of June and first weeks of July. Kensington Palace (right inset) and the Royal Family social media accounts also marked the occasion the messages. "Harry and Meghan were there lending royal support to his cousin", Fitzwilliams said.

Prince William has revealed that Princess Charlotte is already "obsessed" with fashion - after being gifted a pink satchel embossed with her name.

In 2015, his sister Princess Charlotte was christened at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, a royal estate near England's eastern coast.

On April 23, two months ago, another heir to the British Royal throne was born: Prince William and Duchess Catherine's son, Prince Louis. Traditionally, royal baptisms have been a time for lovely family photos, which means brothers George and Louis will be pictured alongside each other for the first time ever.

Prince William and Kate Middleton add the young prince will be christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. "These photos, and the images of the family arriving, will be seen as a compromise by the Cambridges".

Next month, Prince Louis will be christened at St. James' Palace in an official ceremony.
