The third child of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Prince Louis, was christened Monday afternoon at The Chapel Royal in St Jame's Palace in London.

At his christening on October 23, 2013 at the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace in London, Prince George was dressed up in the newly made replica of the classic Victorian christening gown.

The Lily Font, which was commission by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1840 and used for every christening since, and water from the River Jordan were used during the baptism.

Royal fanatics have speculated that Kate Middleton paid a secret tribute to Princess Diana at the christening of Prince Louis.

They were served slices of cake taken from a tier of William and Catherine's wedding cake, the Palace said.

From the duchess's side, Kate's parents Michael and Carole, brother James, sister Pippa and her husband James Matthews were to attend.

Billy Dee Williams to Reprise Role as Lando Calrissian in Episode IX
Star Wars: Episode IX will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Abrams, Bad Robot, and Lucasfilm . Williams is perhaps best known for his role as Lando, who first appeared in The Empire Strikes Back in 1980.

Prince Louis has been christened in a private ceremony.

And appropriate for the occasion, mother Kate Middleton chose to bring back a christening staple: a white dress by Alexander McQueen - the very designer she wore to both Prince George's and Princess Charlotte's christenings, as well as her 2011 wedding to Prince William.

It was the first time Meghan has attended a royal family event like this, having become an aunt to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis in May. The original, retired in order to preserve it, was worn for all royal baptisms since 1841.

Five monarchs have worn the dress on their big day from King Edward VII to George V, Edward VIII, George VI and Queen Elizabeth II.

Prince Harry has purchased a first edition of the famous novel, Winnie-the-Pooh, for £8,000. He has been banned from driving three times, including twice for drink-driving and once for speeding.

William and Kate asked six friends and family members to be Louis's godparents. Van Cutsem is one of four brothers who have been close to William and Harry since they were little. She is the daughter of the 8th Earl of Romney. She is the wife of Robert Carter, who belongs to a family of wealthy landowners.

Lucy Middleton read St Mark 10: 13-16, before the small congregation sang O Jesus, I Have Promised and Lord of All Hopefulness.
