Three years before the wedding...
Prince Louis is the first British Prince to be ranked behind an elder sister in the line of succession due to the Perth Agreement that ranks birthing order above gender in line of succession to the British throne.
Prince Louis was baptized on July 9th, 2018 in the Chapel Royale at St. James Church. Louis wore the replica of the royal christening gown created in 2008 to replace the 1841 original. This replica gown has been used for every royal christening since.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge asked the following people to be godparents to Prince Louis, all of whom are friends or family of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge:
- Mr. Nicholas van Cutsem
- Mr. Guy Pelly
- Mr. Harry Aubrey-Fletcher
- The Lady Laura Meade
- Mrs. Robert Carter
- Miss Lucy Middleton
Prince Louis is becoming quite the character and seems to be stealing the show wherever he goes. Whether it's a tongue-wagging smile, big waves or lots of laughs, he is growing into quite the little boy.
