Expected to be in attendance at the christening are Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla, Duchess Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, the Middleton family, and all of the godparents and their spouses.

Prince Louis, the youngest son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, has been christened in a private ceremony.

Also attending were Kate's parents, her brother and sister and Louis' six godparents, who are close friends or relatives of William and Kate.

She kept her eye on the press pack as she and the rest of the family headed off for a private afternoon tea at Clarence House.

Prince Louis' christening was the fourth time the cake was eaten, on separate occasions first at their wedding, then again at each one of their three children's christenings. The gown is a replica of the 1841 Royal Christening Robe, which was originally made for the christening of Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Victoria, Princess Royal.

Pelly, who attended the christening with his wife Lizzy, is perhaps best known for accompanying Princes William and Harry in livelier days on the London nightclub scene, and has previously said he is now "leaving it to the next generation".

While there is still intense public interest in the newlywed Markle and Prince Harry, the couple kept a low profile behind Prince William, Kate Middleton and their three children as they arrived at the Royal Chapel at St. James's Palace. Looking back, she put on a ruffle-front McQueen dress for Prince George's ceremony in 2013 and a coat-dress by the same designer for that of Princess Charlotte in 2015.

The new Duchess of Sussex opted for a fitted olive green dress by Ralph Lauren and a dramatic hat.

Royal fanatics have speculated that Kate Middleton paid a secret tribute to Princess Diana at the christening of Prince Louis.

Harry and Meghan Duchess of Sussex leave after the christening service.

The christening took place at Chapel Royal at St James's Palace.

"Guests will be served slices of christening cake, which is a tier taken from The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding cake".
