The significance of the royal chapel where Prince Louis will be christened

The Duchess of Cambridge

The 40-minute ceremony will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, who was also involved in the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in May.

The christening marked Louis' second public appearance since his birth in April.

Welcome (officially) to the world, little Prince Louis.

Prince Louis of Cambridge, fifth in line to the throne, has been christened in the Chapel Royal. Four days after his birth, William and Kate announced his name, revealing that his official moniker was to be Prince Louis Arthur Charles.

The decision of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh not to attend the service at the Chapel Royal, St James's Palace, was revealed a few hours before the ceremony.

Kate, Duchess of Cambridge carries Prince Louis as they arrive for his christening service at the Chapel Royal, St James's Palace, London, Monday, July 9, 2018.

The prince's six godparents were among the guests including the Duke's close friend Guy Pelly, who was once dubbed William and Harry's "court jester" for his wild ways. As the palace further explains, "the original gown was subsequently worn for all Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren".

Prince William and the former Kate Middleton were joined at the christening by both of their families.

Prince Louis' elder siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, have also worn the garment.

The prince will be baptized in the Lily Font, a silver font ordered by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert for the baptism of their daughter Victoria in 1841. His grandparents, Prince Charles and Camilla, were in attendance, as well as his uncle and aunt, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

For his godmothers, Prince William and Kate Middleton named Lucy Middleton, who is one of Kate's cousins, Lady Laura Meade, a friend of the family whose husband James is also godfather to Princess Charlotte and Hannah Carter, a college friend of Kate's.
