Royal Family Reveals Prince Louis' Godparents

Queen Elizabeth, 92, and her 97-year-old husband Prince Philip attended the christenings of Louis' older siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Used by royals since Queen Victoria's time, that little church was a sentimental choice because it's where Prince William's late mother, Princess Diana, was herself christened in 1961 when her Spencer family was living on the Sandringham estate.

The three-year-old was seen confidently shaking hands with the Archbishop of Canterbury and The Dean of The Chapel Royal, The Right Reverend and Right Honourable the Lord Chartres before heading inside for the ceremony.

Instead, Prince William's friends Nicholas van Cutsem, fellow Etonian Harry Aubrey-Fletcher and nightclub owner Guy Pelly will serve as godfathers.

Markle's first look for the Irish trip is posh, simple, and will definitely please her Irish counterparts-who we know Queen Elizabeth has had some trouble with (her first ever diplomatic visit was in 2011).

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also announced their youngest son's godparents a few hours before the service.

In the past Charlotte's confident nature has charmed the public, she waved in glee at fans outside the wedding of her uncle Harry and Meghan Markle.

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

In addition to the royal family, members of Kate's family - her parents, Michael and Carole, brother, James, and sister, Pippa - are also attending the christening.

As with her other two children, Kate opted for a white dress by Alexander McQueen for the occasion and a ivory floral headpiece by Jane Taylor.

Prince Charles and Camilla also came out for the christening.

Britain's Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge holds Britain's Prince Louis of Cambridge on their arrival for his christening service. Pint-sized Prince George looks cute as a little button in his navy blue shorts and white top with Peter Pan collar and blue piping around the sleeves.

The christening took place at Chapel Royal at St James's Palace.
