Prince Louis Christened In Front Of Royal Family

Guests included newlyweds the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Princess Charlotte seemed impressed by Prince George's dance moves.

So you can only imagine my glee at seeing all the pics from the christening of Prince Louis of Cambridge.

It's been a busy week for the Cambridges, with Charlotte and George joining their parents at Buckingham Palace for a fly-past marking the RAF's Centenary.

It will be the first time the new family of five will be seen together in the public.

BBC reports that Middleton was overheard saying Louis was "very relaxed and peaceful", and joked to the archbishop that she hopes "he stays like this".

The royal couple also named six close friends and family members to be godparents to Prince Louis, who was born in April. The royal wore large clustered pearl earrings to finish the look and kept her makeup simple with a smoky eye, rosy cheeks and light berry lips.

Kate's younger sister Pippa Middleton and her husband, James Matthews were also present.

Barcelona eye move for Chelsea star Eden Hazard
Spanish giants Real Madrid have dropped their interest in French starlet Kylian Mbappe and won't be pursuing him this summer. If Real Madrid do indeed want to sign Hazard , they will certainly have to shell out staggering sums of money to do so.

Gazza's message for Southgate and his England squad
This is, of course, in no way connected with how our writers may or may not have been feeling themselves at the time. Incredibly, it has been signed by more than 130,000 people - and it has been growing by the minute.

It was a family affair for the Middletons, who all stepped out on Monday afternoon to celebrate Prince Louis' christening.

When Prince Louis is baptised on Monday at the Chapel Royal, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to keep to convention. Coincidentally, William and Kate attended the wedding of Robert and Hannah on their own one-year wedding anniversary in 2012.

Prince Louis's christening gown is the same one that was used by his siblings.

But it was in such fragile shape that the queen commissioned her dressmaker, Angela Kelly, to make a replica.

The chapel is where Queen Victoria married Prince Albert in 1840. He is fifth in line to the throne.

The christening took place at Chapel Royal at St James's Palace.

Another well-known name to appear on the list of godparents includes Guy Pelly, who is the owner of the London nightclub Tonteria. While Princes William and Harry looked smart in coordinating navy blue suits.
