Britain's Prince Louis to be christened in private ceremony

The christening of Prince Louis occurs in just two days, and ahead of that blessed event, adorable photos of Kate Middleton at her own christening surfaced.

And there's a reason why they've chosen to wait until July, as Prince George will have just finished school, as will Princess Charlotte, meaning they'll all be able to attend the special day as the whole family.

With a royal Christening to organise, three children under five and of course, being on maternity leave, it's looking unlikely the Duchess of Cambridge and husband Prince William will attend their favourite event this year.

Here are 13 times Kate Middleton and Princess Charlotte had the flawless mother-daughter style.

The tradition of wearing the gown started in 1841 when the original gown was made for Queen Victoria's first child Princess Victoria's baptism.

The godparents will most likely be close friends of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

England had a good opportunity to amass a huge total, but India fought back after the twin dismissals of the English openers. Pandya also played an unbeaten 14-ball 33-run cameo as skipper Virat Kohli (43; 29b; 2x4, 2x6) missed out on a half-century.

The 11-week-old will be baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, in the palace's Chapel Royal.

George, who turns five later this month, was also christened in the Chapel Royal. As well as sharing this historic date with his great-grandparents, his name itself pays tribute to Prince Philip's grandfather, Prince Louis Alexander of Battenberg, and his uncle, Lord Louis Mountbatten (whom both Philip and Prince Charles were close to).

Father of three William declared it was "thrice the worry now" when he left the hospital with the duchess to take newborn Louis back home to Kensington Palace.

Early on, Louis appeared to be a model baby.

"Sleeping's going reasonably well so far, so he's behaving himself, which is good", he added. Will she choose the same for Prince Louis' baptism?

Prince Louis will be christened in the Lily Font, a silver gilt font and bowl decorated in lilies, ivy and cherubs.
