All the Details on Kate Middleton's Look for Prince Louis' Christening

Prince Louis, the third child of Britain's Prince William and wife Kate, will be christened at a small, private ceremony overseen by the Archbishop of Canterbury later on Monday, but Queen Elizabeth will not be there, his father's office said.

The Queen and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, didn't attend the christening, but it was a decision made "some time ago" and wasn't due to health reasons.

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

Prince Louis' six godparents are Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, Lady Laura Meade, Hannah Carter and Lucy Middleton.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were not present at the christening of their sixth great-grandchild on Monday afternoon, according to a guest list released by Kensington Palace.

"'Robinson Crusoe' was William's favorite book, but Harry loved all things A.A. Milne".

Prince George was christened George Alexander Louis in October 2013.

The Duke and Duchess's second child "made hearts melt" as she walked into the Royal Chapel at St James' Palace holding her father's hand, says the Daily Express.

It's been a busy week for the Cambridges, with Charlotte and George joining their parents at Buckingham Palace for a fly-past marking the RAF's Centenary.

(Charlotte's ceremony took place at St. Mary Magdalene Church, in Sandringham, instead.) Kate Middleton herself also received communion at the Chapel Royal just before her wedding to Prince William.

Prince Harry spared no expense after finding the flawless gift to mark nephew Prince Louis' royal christening on July 9, a new report reveals.

The little girl even thought to bring the order of service home with her, tucking the large booklet under her arm and you have to admire that level of efficiency, she's clearly taking the matter of her brother's christening very seriously.

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.

The new Duchess of Sussex opted for a fitted olive green dress by Ralph Lauren and a dramatic hat.
