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

And while it was certainly the royal baby's special day, it was his three-year-old big sister, Princess Charlotte, who really stole the show. From leading the bridesmaids at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's wedding to that perfected princess wave, the 3-year-old is certainly shaping up to be a natural ruler-of the paparazzi, that is.

While attending her little brother Prince Louis' christening on Monday, Princess Charlotte was caught on camera delivering a stern message to photographers.

The Royal Christening Robe was made in 1841 for the christening of Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Victoria, Princess Royal.

According to body language expert Judi James, Markle deliberately toned down her behaviour to avoid drawing any attention away from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Carter is a college friend of Kate's, and she and her husband Robert live in the county of Norfolk near Anmer Hall, William and Kate's country home.

After the service, the party re-emerged, the Duchess of Cornwall fanning herself with an order of service to relieve the stifling heat before the family headed back to the palace for tea and a slice of fruit cake saved from the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
