Who will christen Prince Louis?

Louis Arthur Charles - to give him his full name - was born on 23 April.

While Louis' big brother, Prince George's christening was also held at St. James's Palace's Chapel Royal, Princess Charlotte's ceremony took place at Sandringham's St. Mary Magdalene church in Norfolk - in the same church where her late grandmother Princess Diana was christened.

Prince Louis will be baptised at the same place as his older brother George.

Royal watchers have already been treated to some photos of newborn Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte together, in images taken by mum Kate Middleton. The christening gown has been passed down to each generation and worn by 62 royal babies.

Prince Louis will wear a a replica lace and satin dress created for Queen Victoria's eldest child, 177 years ago, like his older siblings.
