Prince Louis’ Godparents Aren’t Who You’d Expect

Uncle Prince Harry and his bride, Duchess Meghan of Sussex, were there, plus his maternal grandparents, Carole and Michael Middleton, aunt Pippa Middleton Matthews and her husband James Matthews, and uncle James Middleton.

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

A royal source said it had been agreed some time ago that the 92-year-old queen would not attend the small, family affair and her absence was not due to any health issues. And, she will be hosting President Donald Trump this Friday at Windsor Castle.

Louis' baptism comes after it was recently revealed he will have no less than six godparents, who are all friends or family of Their Royal Highnesses.

It wasn't the only tradition the royal couple chose to stick to for Louis' christening, also using the historic £11,447 Lily Font.

This was the first time the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stepped out with all three children.

The three-year-old was walking hand-in-hand with her dad Prince William after the service at the Royal Chapel at St James's Palace told waiting photographers: "You're not coming".

Kate Middleton and Prince William left Prince Louis at home to attend the 100th birthday of the Royal Air Force Tuesday morning.

Others were quick to notice the resemblance of Pippa's dress to the "matronly" Alexander McQueen dress Duchess Kate sported at her younger sister's nuptials back in May.

"She loved all the old classics and Harry had the brilliant idea of starting a little library of first editions for Louis, Charlotte and George to enjoy as they get older".

Heir to the throne Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, his son Prince William and wife Kate, and Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, all joined the queen on the palace balcony for the display.

She was dressed in another Peter Pan-collared dress, similar to the blue frock she wore at the christening on Monday.

His elder brother George was also christened at the Chapel Royal, but sister Charlotte's christening was at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham. The christening cake served at the tea is a tier taken from William and Kate's eight-tier wedding cake.

Aubrey-Fletcher is yet another longtime friend of William's, according to People.
