Kate, The Duchess of Cambridge, was pictured carrying 11-week-old Louis, while William, The Duke of Cambridge, held the hands of Charlotte and her four-year-old brother George.

Kate's sister, Pippa Middleton, was also in attendance, and looked lovely in an icy pale blue.

Louis' other godparents are: Nicholas van Cutsem, whose family is close to the royals; William's school pal Harry Aubrey-Fletcher; Laura Meade, who is married to William's close friend James Meade; Kate's schoolfriend Hannah Carter; and the duchess's cousin Lucy Middleton.

Just one day after attending the christening of Prince Louis, the royal family was out and about again to celebrate the 100th birthday of the Royal Air Force. She also wore her hair in a low chignon, topped with a white, flowered headpiece.

Prince Harry spent £8,000 on a first edition of Winnie-The-Pooh as a christening present for his nephew Prince Louis.

However, Prince Harry's bride had no brooch or bejewelled accessory in sight on her dress - the only member of the royal family to not wear one to the ceremony.

Of baby Louis, she gave birth at St. Mary's hospital in London, where was born the Prince George and Princess Charlotte. As we recently discovered rules like "no public display of affection allowed" and "the correct way a lady should cross her legs" is just a few of rules that the Royals have to abide by.

Prince Louis was baptised at the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace, a venue that is rich in royal history.

Prince Louis, the third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, will be christened in London, but his great-grandparents won't be there.

It's a festive week for the royal family.

The decision was not down to health reasons, Buckingham Palace said, and was made some time ago.

Photographer Matt Holyoak, who photographed the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh on their 70th wedding anniversary, will do the honours at Monday's ceremony. Diana was a big fan of all of the classic children's book and Harry hopes to create a collection of first editions for Louis, Prince George and Princess Charlotte to enjoy for years to come.
