June 21, 2018

Prince Louis was born 2 months ago, and now, his parents have finally revealed the date of his christening – July 9, 2018. The baby boy will be baptized at the Chapel Royal, St. James’s Palace. It will be a closed ceremony, but the family will share the pictures with the public, which makes the event even more exciting!

Is there any reason William and Kate picked this particular date?

Just like his older brother, the royal baby will be christened 3 months after his arrival. Besides, this date seems to work for every family member in attendance, as it falls a week after Charlotte breaks for the summer and George finishes his school year.

This means that all the Cambridges will attend the event, and we’re looking forward to seeing the pictures of the happy family-of-five for the first time!


Of course, there will be senior royal family members as well, including the Queen, Prince Charles, and Prince William’s brother and sister-in-law. Harry and Meghan will travel to Dublin one day after the ceremony, which might be another reason William and Catherine chose July 9 as a christening date.


The fans of the royal family are more than excited about getting to know the news, rushing to various social media platforms and congratulating the royal family on the occasion.

Do you have any guesses who the baby’s godparents might be?
