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

Ahead of her wedding, Meghan was herself christened and confirmed in the Chapel Royal by the Archbishop, who also married the couple last month.

The youngest of the Cambridge family will be christened on Monday 9 July this year.

The ceremony will take place at the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace in London, where Louis's older brother George was also baptised.

Louis, the Queen's great-grandson, is fifth in line to the throne.

George's christening at the same venue in October 2013 was an intimate occasion, with only 23 guests attending.

The family event is sure to make for some memorable moments, especially with his older siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who regularly steal the show with their cuteness.

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.

However in 2008 a new replica was made as the original, worn by the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry among others, had to be carefully preserved after becoming worn down.
