Queen and Prince Philip to miss Prince Louis' christening

Prince Louis of Cambridge

Proud parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Louis's older siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be there for the service on Monday in the Chapel Royal at London's St James's Palace.

The Queen, then Princess Elizabeth, was christened in the Palace's private chapel in 1926.

Miss Lucy Middleton is one of Kate, Pippa and James Middleton's cousins.

All six godparents are set to attend Prince Louis' christening, which is being held at the Chapel Royal in the grounds of St James' Palace.

The royal couple also named six close friends and family members to be godparents to Prince Louis, who was born in April.

Prince Charles and his wife, Camillia, will be present amongst guests, along with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Dawn and Dusk: Protect yourself all day and night, and wear repellent outdoors during these prime times for mosquito activity. Residents should also make sure that their window and door screens are in good fix to prevent mosquitoes from getting inside.

The only thing that's pretty certain is that Louis will wear the same traditional frilly, cream gown George and Charlotte wore at their christenings.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev. Justin Welby, is presiding over Louis's christening, just as he did for George and Charlotte's christenings.

Meghan - who is attending her first royal christening - looked stylish, dressed in an olive-green Ralph Lauren outfit and Stephen Jones hat. Prince Philip, who retired in 2017, has sporadically attended royal events since then, missing Trooping the Colour in June, but attending his grandson, Prince Harry's wedding in May. While the 40-minute service will be steeped in royal tradition, from the holy water used to the gown the baby will wear, there are some big notable differences to this service compared to when Prince George and Princess Charlotte were baptised in 2013 and 2015.

The robe, made by the Queen's senior dresser Angela Kelly, is a replica of the intricate lace and satin dress made for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter in 1841.

Next is Guy Pelly, whose mother was friends with the late Princess Diana.

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. Guests will be served slices of christening cake, which is a tier taken from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding cake.
