Kate Middleton Wows In White Dress For Prince Louis’ Christening

At Prince Louis' christening this afternoon at St James's Palace, the three-year-old was spotted hand-in-hand with her parents as she made her way into the chapel for the service.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were unable to attend the family ceremony. He even released the song "Diana", with lyrics boasting how the princess drove him "wild", how she is the "queen" of his dreams and questioning what she was doing with a guy like her husband.

The Font, said to weigh 21 pounds has been used at the christenings of all royal family newborns since Queen Victoria and Prince Albert commissioned it before the birth of their first child in 1840.

Prince George and his younger sister, Princess Charlotte, were snapped at Buckingham Palace watching a Royal Air Force flypast from a window.

The Duchess of Cambridge who is on her six-month maternity, not to return to her royal duties until October was a vision in white for her youngest christening.

Following the 40-minute traditional religious service, guests attended a private tea which included slices of christening cake, from a tier taken from the duke and duchess' wedding cake.

Louis is fifth in the line of succession to the British throne after his grandfather Prince Charles, his father William and his older siblings George and Charlotte.

Prince Harry was christened Henry Charles Albert David in December 1984.

Hours ahead of Prince Louis' christening on July 9, Kensington Palace revealed the names of the baby boy's godparents. His brother, William van Cutsem, is Prince George's godfather.

Royal christenings are steeped in tradition, with customs passed down through the generations.

As she left St James's Palace yesterday and headed to the christening party, she hilariously reminded the waiting photographers, "You're not coming".

The new robe was created by the Queen's dresser Angela Kelly. While Princes William and Harry looked smart in coordinating navy blue suits.

Hannah Carter: Formerly Hannah Gillingham, she went to school with Kate at Marlborough College.

The 33-year-old, who's expressed his desire to start a family on a number of occasions, sought counselling after 20 years of not processing his mother's death.

Aubrey-Fletcher is yet another longtime friend of William's, according to People.

Lucy Middleton: She is the Duchess of Cambridge's cousin and a solicitor.
