Prince Louis to be christened at Chapel Royal, Kensington Palace reveals

It was also announced that the event will take place at The Chapel Royal, St James's Palace with the little prince being christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.

"If you look back at the birth of Princess Charlotte, she was born on May 2 and her christening was July 5", said Jess Ilse, editorial assistant at the Royal Central.

Prince Louis will be baptised at the same place as his older brother George.

Louis was born in the private Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London, on St George's Day, weighing 8lb 7oz.

During the christening, which will be followed by public photos, the site adds royal babies tend to have their godparents around, as well as the most senior clerics of the church.

The robe is a replica of the intricate lace and satin dress made for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter in 1841.

Prince George is yet to be seen together with both his younger siblings, with the youngest Prince missing recent events including his uncle Prince Harry's wedding and the Queen's Birthday Parade, Trooping the Colour.

It's been a big year for Welby, who also presided over the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle last month.

However, she gave herself more time to recover after the birth of Charlotte and didn't resume royal duties until the princess was four months old.

Royal fans are set to get their first glimpse of the newest member of the Cambridge clan, with the announcement of Prince Louis's Christening.

Since his birth on April 23, young Prince Louis of Cambridge has stayed mostly (and understandably) out of the spotlight.

"We'll no doubt have the official christening photos, as we did with Prince George and Princess Charlotte", he continued.
