The announcement was made on Twitter by Kensington Palace.

"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.

He is the youngest brother of Prince George and Princess Charlotte and is fifth in line to the British throne.

Britain's royal palace says Prince Louis will be christened July 9 by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.

The service will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Most Reverend Justin Welby, who also baptised George and Charlotte. Traditionally, royal baptisms have been a time for lovely family photos, which means brothers George and Louis will be pictured alongside each other for the first time ever.

"Judging by the previous christenings, and the importance of the day for the family, Louis' christening will be a private affair, perhaps no surprise there".
