Kate Middleton: Prince Louis christening will have water with this special meaning
The service will take place at St James’s Palace in the Chapel Royal.
“Prince Louis will be christened by The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby,” the announcement added.
Prince Louis’ christening will use a font worth £11,000, it has been revealed.
The incredibly lavish piece of kit is delivered to the church where the royals wish to have the event.
And this is not the only pricey bit of kit used in a royal christening.
Tap water drank by normal Britons everyday is not good enough for this tiny baby.
The royals insist on using very special water associated with Jesus Christ himself.
Water from River Jordan in the Middle East is flown from the country to the UK for royal children.
Some was flown in for Princess Charlotte’s 2015 baptism, and some was likely used for Meghan Markle’s baptism too.
Prince William was recently in Jordan, perhaps he has picked some up himself.
Otherwise the royals are look at a very pricey spend, having water special flown across the world.
Prince Louis christening plans mean the day will differ from Prince George’s.
While George, four, and Charlotte, two, were baptised in the morning Prince Louis will be baptised in the afternoon.
Most in the know think it is unlikely Meghan Markle will be a godmother.
Richard Fitzwlliams told Express: “I doubt they would choose Meghan because they won’t have known her that well.”
