Princess Charlotte waves at christening

After all, when Kate grew up, she wasn't a member of the British Royal Family like Charlotte, which likely accounts for the differences in hairstyle and poise.

The service for Prince Louis was attended by guests including Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, and newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan.

Prince Louis was christened at St James's Palace yesterday so it has been a busy week for the royal family.

Crowds at St. James's Palace for the christening of Prince Louis of Cambridge in the Chapel Royal.

She told Welby that Louis was "very relaxed and peaceful", adding: "I hope he stays like this". (This church has its own significance for the royal family: it was where Charlotte's late grandmother, Princess Diana, was herself baptized.) Also at her christening, Charlotte's five godparents were officially named, including some of her parents' nearest friends and relative.


Britain's Princess Charlotte of Cambridge and Britain's Prince George of Cambridge hold hands with their father, Britain's Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, as Britain's Prince Louis of Cambridge is carried by his mother, Britain's Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

When Prince Louis is baptised on Monday at the Chapel Royal, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to keep to convention.

Prince Louis was christened today.

The gown Louis worn was created in 2008 by fashion designer and dressmaker Angela Kelly.

Twitter users also noted her confidence, saying that while older brother George appeared uncomfortable at all the attention, Charlotte seemed to revel in it. Afterward, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hosted a tea party at Clarence House and served a portion of their wedding cake that they had saved since 2011.


The cheeky pair, who welcomed little brother Prince Louis in April, were spotted at the window of Buckingham Palace watching the RAF 100 flypast at around 1pm.

Welby will use the Lily Font, commissioned by queen Victoria for the baptism of her first child in 1841.

Pelly, who has been a loyal friend to both Prince William and Prince Harry despite a reputation for encouraging them astray, has previously run night spots including Mahiki and Whisky Mist.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, went the Kate Middleton way of things and wore a single colour head to toe.
