Prince Louis will be christened this coming Monday, July 9th—and the date has very special significance for his great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

July 9th also happens to be an important date in Queen Elizabeth’s history as monarch, as The Mirror points out. On July 9, 1947, Elizabeth (who was still Princess Elizabeth at the time), announced to the world that she was engaged to Philip Mountbatten (now known, of course, as Prince Philip). Following royal tradition, the couple released an official engagement portrait to commemorate the special day.

Here they are, looking very much in love:

Kensington Palace announced on June 20th that the christening will take place at The Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace, London and that Louis will be christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby.

Louis’ brother, Prince George, was also christened at the Chapel Royal back in 2013. His sister, Princess Charlotte, however, was christened at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Norfolk in 2015.
