Prince Louis, the third child of Britain's Prince William and wife Kate, has been christened at a small, private ceremony overseen by close family but without his great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth.
The Duchess of Cambridge proudly carried a sleeping Prince Louis into The Chapel Royal at St James' Palace on Monday where the nearly two-month-old was baptised in front of the royal family and close friends.
The Chapel is located within the grounds of St James's Palace, in London, and has been home to many significant royal events throughout history.
The UK's Press Association said the decision is understood not to have been taken for health reasons and was mutually agreed by the Queen and Louis' parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, some time ago.
Prince William and the former Kate Middleton were joined at the christening by both of their families.
Recently, Meghan Markle was baptised in the chapel ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry, while Kate Middleton was confirmed there before she Wednesday Prince William. As for the lessons, they chose St. Mark 10: 13-16, which was read by Kate's cousin, Lucy Middleton, and Ephesians 3:14-19, which was read by Will's close friend, Guy Pelly.
