Prince Louis' Christening Date Announced By Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge

However, Princess Charlotte was christened at St. Mary Magdalene Church on the Queen's Sandringham Estate in Norfolk in 2015.

Prince Louis is following in his new aunt, Meghan Markle's footsteps.

The official statement was made via the Kensington Palace Twitter account, where they announced the ceremony will happen on 9th July at The Chapel Royal, St James's Palace, London.

Sister Princess Charlotte was also christened about two months after Kate gave birth to her.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes told the Express: 'As with George and Charlotte, the Duke and Duchess chose close and trusted friends and aides, rather than immediate family members, and the odds suggest that will be the same with little Prince Louis'.

This follows on from the announcement that Meghan and Harry will take a trip to Ireland.

Prince George was christened in the same location in 2013.

With Prince William in the Middle East on official duties at the end of June, his christening is likely to fall some time in July. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will share photos but will keep the occasion as private as possible.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's youngest child, born on April 23, will be baptised at the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace in London.

"Judging by the previous christenings, and the importance of the day for the family, Louis' christening will be a private affair, perhaps no surprise there".

Catherine - who also has four-year-old son Prince George and three-year-old daughter Princess Charlotte with William - recently admitted she "cherishes" spending quality time with her family.
