On July 9th, Prince Louis was christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace. It was indeed a beautiful ceremony, and the 11-week-old baby was sleeping peacefully through the entire ceremony.
But was there any difference, if to compare with the christening ceremonies of Prince George and Princess Charlotte? Prince Louis’ siblings were christened after their births in 2013 and 2015.
On this special day, the baby boy Louis was dressed in a beautiful christening robe that was designed by the Queen’s designer, Angela Kelly.
George and Charlotte were wearing the same outfit for their ceremonies.
As for the guests list, it was a little different. The most significant difference is that Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were not present at Louis’ christening ceremony. Nevertheless, they attended George and Charlotte’s big days. Reportedly, the reason of absence is not health-related.
It was the first time Meghan Markle visited the christening of one of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children.
The christening location for Prince Louis and Prince George was the same – the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace in London. Princess Charlotte was christened at St. Mary Magdalene Church.
The amount of godparents is different. Prince Louis has six godparents, Prince George – seven, and Princess Charlotte – five.
Despite certain differences, all three ceremonies were indeed beautiful.
