But the two were not at the ceremony.

Meghan was christened and confirmed in the oak-panelled Chapel Royal by the archbishop, who also married her and Harry in May.

Pippa Middleton, who is expecting her first baby in the fall, was among the first of the guests to arrive at the chapel.

Louis is fifth in the line of succession to the British throne after his grandfather Prince Charles, his father William and his older siblings George and Charlotte.

This is the first time the family of five has been seen as a full unit in public, People reported.

For her daughter Charlotte's christening on July 5, 2015, Kate wore a attractive white coat by Alexander McQueen and a white fascinator by Jane Taylor - a similar look by the same designers.

The six godparents and their spouses were also due to attend.

Those who met them said that they praised Belfast people saying that they were "so friendly and warm".

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have asked Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, Lady Laura Meade, Mrs. Robert Carter and Lucy Middleton to be godparents for their youngest child.


Guests were enjoyed slices of fruit cake from a tier of William and Kate's eight-tier wedding cake at the swanky do.

Proud parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made their way into the service in London with their three children.

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the spiritual leader of the world's Anglicans, lead the service in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace.

It's days like today that make being a mom so special for Kate Middleton. The duo accompanied their mother Kate to the Houghton Horse Trials in Norfolk and once again looked impeccably well turned out in casual attire. It was a surprising move at Princess Charlotte's christening on July 5, 2015.

Prince Louis' godparents most closely reflect the list of Princess Charlotte's godparents as there are no major royals on the list. On Monday just before the christening, the palace confirmed that the gown would be worn by Louis once more to continue the royal tradition.

At her first royal christening, the former "Suits" actress gave a nod to her US roots by wearing an olive-toned design by popular American designer Ralph Lauren.

Prince William could then be heard telling Charlotte: "Well done".

The cozy (seats less than 50) chapel's long history (it was built starting in 1540) is steeped in royal connections and ceremonies. Kate actually re-wore that same cream coat at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in May 2018. The new version was made by the Queen's dresser, Angela Kelly.

The Prince has promised to build an exclusive library for Louis in memory of Princess Diana and the 1926 AA Milne classic is the library's first book.
