Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed their baby boy on April 23, 2018. And soon after, the Kensington Palace announced in a statement that, “The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge.”

With the Royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the focus shifted from the baby but he's back in the cynosure with a big event of his life. The 11-week-old Prince Louis, the youngest son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, was christened on Monday at the The Chapel Royal at St James's Palace in London with the entire Royal family by his side. His siblings Prince George, four, and three-year-old Princess Charlotte also joined in the ceremony and the family of five made their first public appearance together.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle apart from Kate’s pregnant sister Pippa with her husband James Matthews also arrived at the chapel. The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle wore olive green Ralph Lauren. However, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip did not make it to the occasion.

The Prince was seen in a hand made replica of the Royal Christening Robe, made by Angela Kelly, Dressmaker to The Queen. The original robe was made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin in the year 1841 for the christening ceremony of Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter. And he looked adorable as she slept his way through the 40-minute ceremony. His mother Kate Middleton, who carried his youngest son in his arms, was seen in a lace and satin dress.
