Prince Louis's christening: Royals to gather for baptism at St James's Palace

Royal christening who is Nicholas Van Cutsem

Meghan Markle had all eyes on her at the Royal Wedding earlier this year and the former actress also paid tribute to husband Prince Harry's beloved mother.

Louis's siblings Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 3, also watched the ceremony at The Chapel Royal in St. James's Palace.

Instead, it is the Queen's busy schedule that kept her away from the event, but her absence was a mutual decision between the monarch, Prince William, and Kate Middleton. Prior to the christening William and Kate announced six friends and family members to be Louis' godparents.

The Choir of Her Majesty's Chapel Royal performed This is the day which the Lord hath made, which was composed for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding in 2011, and Suo Gan, a traditional Welsh lullaby. For Prince George, a handful of his fashion choices are throwbacks to the '80s, and not just any trend from said decade, but ones that his pa, Prince William, wore back in the day.

Prince William, Prince Charles and the queen, for example, were all christened in the Music Room of Buckingham Palace.

Little Louis wore a frilly cream royal christening gown which was an immaculate replica of the intricate gown originally made for Queen Victoria's oldest daughter in 1841.

The now seven-year-old cake is a tier taken from The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding cake when the pair Wednesday in 2011.

While attending Prince Louis' christening, big sister Princess Charlotte gave photographers a sassy message and a stare-down.

Lucy Middleton is Kate's cousin and the sister of Adam Middleton, who is one of Princess Charlotte's godparents. Princess Charlotte looked precious in a blue dress and matching headband while Prince George sported a short-sleeved white shirt and navy shorts.

She was also seen waving before shaking hands with the Archbishop of Canterbury, who carried out the service.

The christening took place at Chapel Royal at St James's Palace. The christening cake served at the tea is a tier taken from William and Kate's eight-tier wedding cake.

Carter is an old friend of Kate's and attended Marlborough College alongside her, according to Time.
