His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge is fifth in line to the throne, and the sixth great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth.

Britain's Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex leave after the christening.

(This church has its own significance for the royal family: it was where Charlotte's late grandmother, Princess Diana, was herself baptized.) Also at her christening, Charlotte's five godparents were officially named, including some of her parents' nearest friends and relative.

Little Louis could be seen sleeping soundly in his mother's arms, despite the loud flashing cameras nearby, as Kate strolled into the chapel wearing a white long-sleeved dress with matching fascinator.

That was the case for Kate Middleton whose third child, Prince Louis, slept through the majority of his royal christening on Monday, according to People.

But the decision for them not to attend Louis´ baptism at St. James´s Palace in London was understood to have been mutually agreed by the monarch and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge some time ago and was not health-related.

Louis will wear the replica of the royal christening robe, first used in 2008. The new version was made by the Queen's dresser, Angela Kelly.

Who are Prince Louis' godparents?

Welby, who will baptise the baby by pouring holy water from the River Jordan over his head, said the event would be "very nerve-wracking" but "a great privilege". "His big sister, Lady Louise Windsor, had been the last royal to wear the original gown", the site notes.

Following the 40-minute traditional religious service, guests attended a private tea which included slices of christening cake, from a tier taken from the duke and duchess' wedding cake.

Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge was born on April 23 - St. George's Day, England's national day - at St Mary's Hospital in central London weighing eight pounds and seven ounces (3.8 kilogrammes).
