Royal family: Queen and Prince Philip to miss Prince Louis' christening

GETTYThe Red Arrows will take to the skies to commemorate the RAF’s 100th anniversary

Prince Louis, the third child of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - Prince William and Kate Middleton, has been christen ed at a private ceremony. And, she will be hosting President Donald Trump this Friday at Windsor Castle.

Earlier, the little royal showed off her good manners as she shared a polite handshake with the Archbishop of Canterbury as she arrived for the christening.

Her pale blue coat dress might have looked extra familiar though, because Kate basically wore the same thing to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's royal wedding in May, only in yellow.

They included friends and family members of the couple, but no siblings.

In other christening-related news, Kate wore a stunning McQueen ensemble, Meghan chose Ralph Lauren and Harry gave his new nephew Louis a very, VERY expensive present.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also announced their youngest son's godparents a few hours before the service.

The Duchess of Cambridge appeared to make a special gesture to involve her tragic mother-in-law in her grandson's christening.

Louis was carried into the chapel by his beaming mother, wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening robe, which in 2008 replaced the original that had been worn for all royal christenings since that of Queen Victoria's eldest daughter in 1841.

Nicholas Van Cutsem, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, and Guy Pelly are Prince Louis' godfathers.

Despite still being on maternity leave, after giving birth to Louis only 11 weeks ago, it is understood Kate felt the celebrations were important to attend if she could, having also taken part in Louis' christening yesterday.

Charles, Camilla, William, Harry and Meghan will also meet veterans, personnel, charity representatives and those from the civil service in a reception after the spectacle.

Kate Middleton was confirmed there before she Wednesday Prince William in 2011, and following her death, Princess Diana's coffin laid in the church a week before her funeral.

William was holding Prince George and Princess Charlotte by the hand and could be heard to encourage them as they made their way to the chapel.
