Louis' godparents will be announced on the day, but judging by George and Charlotte's christenings, they are likely to be close friends and confidantes of William and Kate.

Prince William and Kate Middleton are pictured in their royal box at Wimbledon every year but there's a big question mark over this year's event.

On Monday, July 9, Prince Louis will be christened at the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace in London in front of a close group of family and godparents.

The tradition of wearing the gown started in 1841 when the original gown was made for Queen Victoria's first child Princess Victoria's baptism.

Prince Louis' christening details have been revealed by Kensington Palace two months after he was born on April 23, 2018.

The chapel has sentimental meaning for the family - it's where Kate Middleton received communion before her wedding in April 2011, and it is also where the coffin of Princess Diana lay before her funeral in 1997. The now Duchess of Cambridge was christened on June 20, 1982, just one day before the birth of her husband, Prince William.

On May 19, before she had even confirmed she was expecting, Pippa seemed to be glowing at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding in a mint green and patterned silk dress.

Welby, who will baptize the baby by pouring holy water from the River Jordan over his head, said the event would be "very nerve-wracking" but "a great privilege".

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.

William and Kate had already used Louis as one of Prince George's middle names, but liked it so much they made a decision to use it again.
