Royal Family steps out for Prince Louis' christening

Princess Charlotte, three, left her brother Prince George, four, in stitches as she was seen squishing her nose against the window before making a series of hilarious faces towards the crowds.

What will Prince Louis wear? Prince Louis godparents are Lady Laura Meade, Hannah Carter, Lucy Middleton, Nicholas van Cutsem, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher and Guy Pelley.

"I'm delighted and privileged to be christening Prince Louis today - a precious child made in God's image, just as we all are", Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said on Twitter. His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge is fifth in line to the throne, and the sixth great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth. White gowns, or "robes", were christening fashion going back to the 1700s, according to the archives at the Victoria and Albert Museum. The Queen, rather out of character, changed her shoes midway through the event.

However the Queen, 92, and Prince Philip, 97, were notable absences as it was confirmed that they were unable to attend the christening service due to their busy royal schedules.

The last thing she will want to do is upstage the bride or worse, look like she would rather be anywhere else but at the wedding. Now the only question remains is how Kate Middleton will act or what she will even wear to Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding.

The original gown has been worn for all Royal christenings since, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren.

"It was made from scratch, from sketching it out, to embroidering the lace on a special silk-based tulle", aide Angela Kelly told PEOPLE.

The high street also stocks variations of Princess Charlotte's sweet ribboned accessory.

Nothing gets past Princess Charlotte.

For the christening of George, Kate and Will's first born, in October 2013, Kate again wore a cream Alexander McQueen coat-dress, this one with a large ruffle down the center of her chest and on her waist.

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.
