Royal family leaves chapel after Prince Louis' christening

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip leave St. George's Chapel after the wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle on May 19

Britain's Prince Louis of Cambridge, the baby son of Prince William and his wife Kate, was christened on Monday but Queen Elizabeth II did not attend. However, according to the BBC, this was a decision made "some time ago" and it's not due to health reasons.

She will attend high profile celebrations in central London marking the centenary of the RAF on Tuesday, and a visit by USA president Donald Trump in Windsor on Friday.

He may have been too young to attend Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's recent royal wedding on May 19, but Prince Louis was out for the world to see today, during his royal christening at The Chapel Royal, St. James's Palace in London.

Welby baptised Louis by pouring holy water from the River Jordan over his head.

However, she said that if he was unable to support the Government's agreed position "it is right that you step down". Prime Minister Theresa May announced Hunt's new role in a tweet, adding that the queen had approved the change.


The Archbishop appeared to ask if Prince Louis was asleep when he spoke to the Duchess as the guests made their way to the Chapel Royal.

The christening itself is quite the family tradition, Royal Central U.K. notes, adding Prince Louis also wore a replica of the now-famous Honiton lace christening gown.

Louis is set to wear the same christening gown used by his siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

While many eyes were on the 11-week-old royal baby who has not been seen in public since his birth on April 23, fans of the famous family were also curious to see what Kate would be wearing to such a special occasion.

She was the first person to meet the Prince after Kate gave birth to him at the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington earlier this year.

Charlotte, who's fourth in line to the throne, is already excelling at being an older sibling.

William and Harry wore matching blue suits. He is a close friend of both Prince William and Prince Harry - helping to organise the former's stag do - and was dubbed the pair's "court jester".

Pictures also show Prince Louis with his family on the day of his Christening.
