It took a while for new parents to decide, but they finally settled on a date – July 9. The duke and duchess came to conclusion that the event should be a strictly family matter, so the ceremony will be private.
Special day for royals
There is no doubt the christening of their third child is a special day for Kate and William. But the date holds extra significance for Her Majesty and Prince Philip as well. The reason for that is very romantic. On July 9, the monarch and her beloved husband announced their engagement in 1947, exactly 71 years ago.
