Louis was dressed in a cream, frilly lace royal christening gown - a replica of the intricate robe made for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter in 1841. Prince Harry and new wife Duchess Meghan were also in attendance, although grandparents Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip were not.

The christening came at the start of a busy week for the monarch, who is due to attend celebrations in London marking the centenary of the Royal Air Force Tuesday and to meet US President Donald Trump in Windsor on Friday.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose two hymns for the ceremony - "O Jesus, I have Promised" and "Lord of All Hopefulness". According to the Press Association, it is understood that the couple's decision not to attend is not health-related and had been mutually agreed upon between them and Prince Louis' parents.

Royal expert James Brookes said earlier that Prince William and Middleton would make a compromise at Prince Louis' christening. After telling the photographers that they were not coming with the royal family to Prince Louis' christening, she continued to give them a stare-down as she walked away.

The Duke of Edinburgh, 97, has retired from public duties and has been enjoying his free time away from London.

It may have been Prince Louis' christening, but it was his big sister Princess Charlotte's sassy off-hand remark that stole the show.

On Monday, Prince William and Kate Middleton arrived at the Chapel Royal in St. James's Palace in London. The latest baby of Kate Middleton and Prince William is just adorable in this noble ornament, and the whole family was also very elegant as usual. The main dish of tea was the wedding cake (or rather, the rest of his part), Kate and William, which they keep with 2011.

Kate's cousin Lucy Middleton has been named a godmother; her brother, Adam Middleton, now serves as one of Princess Charlotte's godfathers.

The event was the first time the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge appeared publicly with all three of their children.
