Prince Harry spends $10K on nephew Prince Louis' christening gift

The outfit was reminiscent of what the Duchess of Cambridge has worn to both Prince George and Princess Charlotte's christenings.

Louis, the fifth in line to the British throne who was born on April 23, will be christened at The Chapel Royal of St James's Palace in central London.

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

Little Louis wore a frilly cream royal christening gown which was an immaculate replica of the intricate gown originally made for Queen Victoria's oldest daughter in 1841.

Prince Harry spared no expense after finding the flawless gift to mark nephew Prince Louis' royal christening on July 9, a new report reveals.

Her mother added a blue headband with a bow, to decorate Charlotte's hair.

They may be Royals, but at the end of the day Prince George and Princess Charlotte are just children - as they demonstrated today.

Prince Louis' Godparents Revealed Ahead of Today's Christening
The royal family ― sans Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip ― showed up for Prince Louis Arthur Charles' christening on Monday. Prince Harry bought a very special (and expensive) christening gift for Prince Louis , who is due to be christened today.

Louis' godparents, who will be announced on the day, will take part in the private 40-minute traditional religious ceremony, which begins at 16:00 BST.

So you can only imagine my glee at seeing all the pics from the christening of Prince Louis of Cambridge. Prince William was by Kate's side, supportive as ever.

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.

At her christening on July 5, 2015 at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene on the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, Princess Charlotte wore the very same christening gown.

Others were quick to notice the resemblance of Pippa's dress to the "matronly" Alexander McQueen dress Duchess Kate sported at her younger sister's nuptials back in May.
