Prince Louis to be christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury next month

Prince Louis to be christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury next month

As of Wednesday, we know what's next up on the royal schedule that'll draw the family together once again: Prince Louis's christening. "Obviously events such as Meghan and Harry's wedding and Trooping the Colour were exceptions and Louis is expected to be christened in the summer".

The attractive day will take place at the Chapel Royal at St. James's palace in London and will be conducted by Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury.

He was presented with satchels for Charlotte and her brothers Prince George, four, and two-month-old Prince Louis during a visit to Liverpool earlier this week.

The world will get a glimpse of the newest royal prince very, very soon.

It is modelled after the wedding dress Queen Victoria wore for her marriage to Prince Albert in 1840, a year before the birth of their first child.

In 2015, his sister Princess Charlotte was christened at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, a royal estate near England's eastern coast.

Interested in Royal Family?

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rev. Justin Welby will perform the christening. Princess Charlotte's christening took place at St. Mary Magdalene church in Sandringham. Though royal christening services are private events, the family typically appears before the cameras on the way into and out of the chapel.

The Queen, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall are set to attend. The original, made of Honiton lace and white satin, was used up until 2004 but is now too delicate to be worn.

The third son of Prince William and his wife Kate, Duchess of Cambridge was born April 23 and is fifth in line to the throne. Certain parts of their eight-layer confection were reserved for the christenings of their children, an age-old royal tradition.
