Prince Louis' Baptism Will Have A Deep Connection To Princess Diana

"So if you follow that model for Prince Louis' christening, I wouldn't be surprised if it was announced for the end of this month or July".

The little prince, the younger brother of Prince George and Princess Charlotte, will be baptized in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace.

Since his birth on April 23, young Prince Louis of Cambridge has stayed mostly (and understandably) out of the spotlight.

Prince Louis will be three months old, which is how old Prince George was for his Christening, while Princess Charlotte was two months old at the time of hers at St. Mary Magdalene Church, Sandringham.

The godparents will be announced the morning of the christening, according to BBC News.

The third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was delivered at the private Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington on St George's Day. The Chapel Royal has a special tie to Prince William and his family, as it's where his late mother's coffin was held for a week before her funeral, and where Kate Middleton received communion just prior to her own royal wedding.

Who is performing the christening?

The service for Prince Louis, who is fifth-in-line to the throne, will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Most Reverend Justin Welby, who baptised George and Charlotte.

What will Prince Louis wear at his christening?

It is a replica of the one made in 1841 for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter that was used until 2004, when it became too delicate to be worn. "His big sister, Lady Louise Windsor, had been the last royal to wear the original gown", the site notes.
