The Queen and Prince Philip will not attend Prince Louis's christening

Louis is the third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and is fifth in the line of succession to the British throne after his grandfather Prince Charles, his father William and his siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Kate's cousin Lucy Middleton has been named a godmother; her brother, Adam Middleton, now serves as one of Princess Charlotte's godfathers.

While grandparents, aunts and uncles will all be present for the special day, the little one's regal great-grandmother and great-grandfather will not be taking a seat inside The Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace in London.

The new Royal Baby was born on April 23, and today, his parents announced who will act as godparents.

Lady Laura Meade, pictured with husband James at the 2018 royal wedding, has been named one of Prince Louis's godmothers.

Prince Louis will be christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.

Meghan topped off her look with an olive green Stephen Jones hat and matching pointed heels while Prince Harry looked dashing in a dark suit.

The Scotsman managed to chase it up to the green, but Fox's approach was much closer by virtue of his easier shot. Although Fox would invariably bring it to a playoff, this was an equally spectacular effort.

The ceremony will be in front of 40 close friends and family. For Princess Charlotte's big moment in 2016, Middleton dressed in head to toe white in an Alexander McQueen dress (which she wore again in 2017), with delicate silver jewelry and a flower-filled fascinator.

Prince Louis will wear a replica christening gown designed by The Queen's dressmaker, Angela Kelly, which replicates the gown commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and used for royal births until 2003.

At his christening on October 23, 2013 at the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace in London, Prince George was dressed up in the newly made replica of the classic Victorian christening gown.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will host a private tea party at Clarence House following the christening, where guests will be treated to christening cake made from a tier of the couple's wedding cake.

Prince Louis was decked out in the same christening gown that Prince George and Princess Charlotte have worn before him.
