Royal Family steps out for Prince Louis' christening

Today was Prince Louis' christening, and Princess Charlotte showed up looking an bad lot like her mama, Kate Middleton, looked like when she was a little girl. Later this week, she will host President Donald Trump for a meeting at Windsor Castle.

After Meghan Markle confirmed her father Thomas won't attend the wedding, Prince Charles offered to walk the bride down the aisle.

He is also one of Queen Elizabeth's seven great-grandchildren.

Kate's sister Pippa is expecting her first child.

Prince Louis was born on April 23 and is the younger brother to Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 3.

Overnight, the newest member of the British Royal Family, Prince Louis, was christened.

Prince William and Kate Middleton kept up a family tradition for Prince Louis' christening party that might turn some stomachs.

Louis' godparents, who will be announced on the day, will take part in the private 40-minute traditional religious ceremony, which begins at 16:00 BST.

The Cambridges have previously chosen close friends and confidantes for the role.

Prince Harry has purchased a first edition of the famous novel, Winnie-the-Pooh, for £8,000.

Harry Aubrey-Fletcher: He went to Ludgrove School and Eton with William and his father is the Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire.

Louis' godmothers are Lady Laura Meade, Hannah Carter, and Lucy Middleton.

Princess Charlotte, teach us your waving technique! She is the wife of James Meade, who is one of Princess Charlotte's godfathers.

The duchess, who was wearing Alexander McQueen, added, with a smile: "I hope he stays like this".

Also in attendance was the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

It is a replica of the dress made for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter in 1841.

What a magnificent (and elegant) way to welcome tiny Prince Louis to the faith and the royal family.

The little prince was also christened in the Lily Font, a silver gilt font and bowl decorated in lilies, ivy and cherubs.

Following the service, where Prince Louis was flanked by six godparents, the royals made their way to Clarence House where they enjoyed an intimate afternoon tea with guests.
