Guest list, godparents announced for Prince Louis' christening

Guest list, godparents announced for Prince Louis' christening

The duke and duchess have always emphasized their desire for their children to have normal lives, rather than "growing up behind palace walls".

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

She's a natural royal and seems to be a lot more confident than her shy older brother, Prince George.

If there was one member of the royal family who appeared unconcerned at the Queen's decision not to attend the christening of Prince Louis yesterday, it was the star of the show himself.

The following year, Prince William missed the Royal Family's traditional Christmas lunch to attend the memorial service of Mr Pelly's father John, who owned two Toyota-Subaru garages in Kent.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle gave major relationship goals at their fairytale wedding.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have pledged to back unique projects from all the 53 member-countries of the Commonwealth. Meghan Markle only officially joined the royal family two months ago, but she's already sounding the part.

While the Duchess of Cambridge is known for reusing her outfits, she isn't as well known for reusing food.

The young pair were joined today by Spanish nanny Maria Borallo as they watched the display.

The palace says Louis will wear a replica of the royal christening gown that was made in 1841 (no wonder they needed to make a replica) created by the queen's very own dressmaker. Meanwhile the design, although reminiscent of a lady's flowing dress (and reportedly made to reflect Queen Victoria's own wedding gown), was considered unisex and graced both male and female babies. It was carefully washed with spring water after use and stored in a dark room, the Telegraph reported, to keep it in its best condition. Afterward, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hosted a tea party at Clarence House and served a portion of their wedding cake that they had saved since 2011.

As People notes, the ceremony was conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby.

His eldest sibling Prince George, 4, clutched his dad Prince William's hand and had his trademark look of vague distaste on his face (god I love this kid) while sister Princess Charlotte, 3, looked mostly confused. Interestingly, Robert is the brother of Sophie Carter, another close friend and confidant of Kate Middleton. He has been banned from driving three times, including twice for drink-driving and once for speeding.

Carole and Michael Middleton, Prince Louis's other proud grandparents, kept to the blue theme with Mrs Middleton wearing a pale blue dress from Suzannah paired with a matching hat and white heels. She is the daughter of the 8th Earl of Romney.
