What a magnificent (and elegant) way to welcome tiny Prince Louis to the faith and the royal family.

It might have been Prince Louis' christening on Sunday, but there's no denying that his big sister Princess Charlotte stole the show.

He was baptized at the Chapel Royal on the grounds of St James's Palace in London, just like his older brother George.

Instead, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose close friends and extended family members to be Louis' godparents.

What's the history behind the gown that was used since 1841?

The Queen and Prince Philip did not attend. At affair, the 34-year-old socialite donned a gorgeous baby blue dress to her nephew's outing that cut a similar style to the Alexander McQueen number her 36-year-old royal sis wore to her 2017 wedding.

He wore the handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, which was commissioned by the Queen in order to preserve the original. She definitely didn't upstage the bride with that recycled fashion choice, but she still looked awesome. The new version was made by the Queen's dresser, Angela Kelly. But ultimately time got the best of it.

He is also one of Queen Elizabeth's seven great-grandchildren.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, also married Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at their wedding last month, and called his forthcoming duty at Prince Louis' christening "very nerve wracking" but also "a great privilege".

What did Princess Charlotte wear?

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

As they left, Princess Charlotte, three, clutched an order of service as a souvenir, while Prince George, four, peered calmly at his baby brother.

It was the first time the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children have been seen together as a family of five. His brother, William van Cutsem, is Prince George's godfather.

Prince Louis, the third child of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - Prince William and Kate Middleton, has been christen ed at a private ceremony.
