Prince William and Duchess Kate christen third child Prince Louis

As after George and Charlotte's baptisms, guests will be served slices of the duke and duchess's wedding cake.

Being the best big sister to Prince Louis she could be, little Charlotte chose to take a pamphlet from Prince Louis's christening with her as a souvenir.

The monarch was due to return to London on Monday before a busy schedule of events including a meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday at her Windsor Castle home.

Prince Louis has been christened in a private ceremony.

And while Kate Middleton's first son is always dressed incredibly cute and smart, it would seem he usually wears very similar outfits.

On Tuesday night, capping off a long day of activities in multiple countries, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended a summer garden party hosted by Britain's Ambassador to Ireland, Robin Barnett. Prince Louis godparents are Lady Laura Meade, Hannah Carter, Lucy Middleton, Nicholas van Cutsem, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher and Guy Pelley.

Miss Middleton and Mr Pelly each read a lesson during the service, Kensington Palace said.

His eldest sibling Prince George, 4, clutched his dad Prince William's hand and had his trademark look of vague distaste on his face (god I love this kid) while sister Princess Charlotte, 3, looked mostly confused.

Kate wore a pale mint Alexander McQueen design, while Meghan wore navy.

Pippa Middleton arrives with her husband James Matthews.

After Meghan Markle confirmed her father Thomas won't attend the wedding, Prince Charles offered to walk the bride down the aisle. Louis will wear the replica of the royal christening robe, first used in 2008.

The Queen looked radiant in a royal blue silk coat with a turquoise collar over a dress in the same colour, both by Angela Kelly, with a matching hat and a diamond star.

According to tradition, water from the River Jordan was used at the christening.

The cheeky pair, who welcomed little brother Prince Louis in April, were spotted at the window of Buckingham Palace watching the RAF 100 flypast at around 1pm. He is fifth in line to the throne.

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

"They are rewarding the loyalty of their really close friends and keeping the godparents from the tight, inner circle", one source said, commenting on the fact that some of Prince Louis' godparents have direct ties to some other royal godparents. He has been banned from driving three times, including twice for drink-driving and once for speeding.
