21 June, 2018, 19:27 | Author: Miranda Cannon

Britain's royal palace says Prince Louis will be christened July 9 by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.

Here's everything you need to know about Prince Louis' big day.

"If you look back at the birth of Princess Charlotte, she was born on May 2 and her christening was July 5", said Jess Ilse, editorial assistant at the Royal Central.

The newborn was last seen in public in April when he was just seven hours old, as he left St Mary's Hospital with mum and dad, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Prince William and Kate Middleton add the young prince will be christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.


His brother Prince George was christened at a similar time, and was baptised about 13 weeks after he was born on October 23, 2013.

It's the quickest christening out of all of the Duke and Duchess' children.

At a christening already heavy with memories of Diana, Princess of Wales, the choice of Laura Fellowes confirmed predictions that the Duke would want a member of his mother's family to be a godparents. No further details of timing have been shared; Princess Charlotte's took place at 4:30 p.m.in England, however, so it's likely it will be an afternoon event.

It has been reported Kate's third child will wear the same Honiton ivory lace gown his older brother and sister wore.

Current hot favourites include Prince William and Harry's former nanny Tiggy Legge-Bourke, 53, at 2/1 odds.
