We present to you, Prince Louis Arthur Charles.

The youngest member of the royal family came into the world on the 23rd of April 2018, and on the 9th of July was christened at the Chapel Royal on the grounds of St. James’s Palace.

The Archbishop of Canterbury welcomed little Louis into the Church of England, surrounded by friends and family.

Prior to the ceremony, Kensington Palace announced the Prince of Cambridge’s godparents as Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, Laura Meade, Robert Carter, and Lucy Middleton.

Five of the 6 are close friends of Duke and Duchess, William and Catherine (as is their personal tradition), while Lucy is Kate’s cousin.

Those in attendance included proud grandparents, Prince Charles and Camilla and Michael and Carole Middleton, as well as aunts and uncles James and Pippa Middleton and newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Louis’s great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, was not present due to her hectic work schedule.

Following the affair, Prince William and Kate hosted a private tea at Clarence House, where a tier of their wedding cake was served as Louis’ special christening cake.
