Prince Louis christening: Kate Middleton arrives with sleeping son | Daily Star

The 3-year-old looked angelic as she walked in holding hands with her dad, Prince William, and carrying what appeared to be a program for the church service.

Kate, dressed in an ivory dress and matching hat, and William were joined by William's father Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, along with younger brother Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, dressed in olive green.

Prince Louis' christening was the first time that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made a public appearance with all of their children.

The royal family gathered today to celebrate the christening of Prince Louis, the three-month old of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Royal expert James Brookes said earlier that Prince William and Middleton would make a compromise at Prince Louis' christening.

The decision is understood not to have been taken on health grounds, and to have been mutually agreed by the Queen and the Cambridges some time ago.

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

The Duke and Duchess have asked six close friends and family members to become Louis' godparents.

While all eyes were on Prince Louis during his royal christening, we couldn't help but notice the venue's sweet connection to Princess Diana. Every subsequent royal christening, until that of James, Viscount Severn, in 2008, featured the original gown of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will also be guests, as will Kate's brother James Middleton, and Kate's pregnant sister Pippa with husband James Matthews - the brother of former Made in Chelsea star Spencer Matthews. The main dish of tea was the wedding cake (or rather, the rest of his part), Kate and William, which they keep with 2011. Designed by Fiona Cairns, the eight-tiered cake was made up of 17 individual fruit cakes decorated with cream, white icing, and almost 900 individually iced flowers and leaves.
