Britain's Prince Louis christened without Queen, News

Earlier, the little royal showed off her good manners as she shared a polite handshake with the Archbishop of Canterbury as she arrived for the christening.

The duke and duchess have always emphasized their desire for their children to have normal lives, rather than "growing up behind palace walls".

A royal source said it had been agreed some time ago that the 92-year-old queen would not attend the small, family affair and her absence was not due to any health issues.

What a magnificent (and elegant) way to welcome tiny Prince Louis to the faith and the royal family.

It marks a rare public appearance for Kate during her six months maternity leave, who has only been pictured on official royal business three times since giving birth to her third child.

BBC reports that Middleton was overheard saying Louis was "very relaxed and peaceful", and joked to the archbishop that she hopes "he stays like this".

She may be only 3 years old, but Princess Charlotte showed off her confident nature with a cheeky remark as she left her brother Prince Louis' christening.

Even at her youngest son Prince Louis's christening Monday, Middleton opted for a similar neckline in a dress that was made by, you guessed it, Alexander McQueen. Kate wore a white McQueen outfit with a headdress by Jane Taylor.

Van Cutsem's father was one of Prince Charles's closest friends.

They may be Royals, but at the end of the day Prince George and Princess Charlotte are just children - as they demonstrated today. He was born April 23, 2018. It was hand-made in 2008 by Angela Kelly, the Dressmaker to the Queen.

According to tradition, water from the River Jordan was used at the christening. There, the couple will honor their guests by serving a slice of of christening cake, which, Kensington noted, "is a tier taken from The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding cake". He is fifth in line to the throne.

Twitter users also noted her confidence, saying that while older brother George appeared uncomfortable at all the attention, Charlotte seemed to revel in it.

Prince William was an RAF search-and-rescue pilot, while his brother, Harry, served as an air traffic controller and helicopter pilot with the Army Air Corps - serving two tours of duty in Afghanistan. The V-neckline and structured shoulders never fail to look elegant and timeless on the mom of three.

Proud grandfather the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall did attend, along with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex who walked hand-in-hand.

It was a family affair for the Middletons, who all stepped out on Monday afternoon to celebrate Prince Louis' christening. She is the daughter of the 8th Earl of Romney. Carter is a college friend of Kate's, and she and her husband Robert live in the county of Norfolk near Anmer Hall, William and Kate's country home.

Markle is another royal who's found her go-to wares.

And finally, Middleton, is, as you'd expect, is a cousin of Kate's.
