The first picture of Prince Louis with Charlotte and George expected as christening plans revealed
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children are set to be pictured together for the first time at Prince Louis’ christening on Monday. Prince William and Kate, both 36, have arranged a small, intimate ceremony for their third child, at which only close members of the Royal family will be present. The 11-week-old will be christened at 4pm in the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace.

And it will be first time we’ll see William and Kate’s family of five together, with Prince George and Princess Charlotte also present. Harry and Meghan will attend the 40-minute service, as will Kate’s pregnant sister Pippa Matthews, and her brother James Middleton.
Louis’ godparents will be announced on the day, but it is believed the couple will choose close friends or family members. And Louis, who is fifth in line to the throne, is expected to wear the same frilly, cream gown George and Charlotte wore at their christenings. George, who turns five later this month, was also christened in the Chapel Royal.
Charlotte, now three, was baptised at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham, Norfolk. A reception was held at Buckingham Palace after George’s service. Only 22 guests attended his christening in 2013.
