Prince Harry gives Prince Louis $10K christening present

On Monday, Prince William and Kate Middleton arrived at the Chapel Royal in St. James's Palace in London.

The Queen and Prince Philip won't attend the christening.

The decision is understood not to have been taken on health grounds, and to have been mutually agreed by the Queen and the Cambridges some time ago.

The 92-year-old monarch has a busy week ahead, marked by a visit from US President Donald Trump in Windsor on Friday.

Following the service, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are set to give a private tea at Clarence House.

Prince Harry has paid around $10,000 for a first edition "Winnie-the-Pooh" for nephew Louis' christening. His brother, Nicholas van Custem, is also one of Prince George's godparents as well. At St James's Palace in London, nearly the entire gang (minus the Queen) was there to celebrate his big day-which he reportedly slept through completely. There, guests were served slices of fruit cake from a tier of William and Kate's wedding cake, according to reports.

Prince Louis was born on April 23 and is the younger brother to Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 3.

The 11-week-old was baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace. The original is now too delicate to be worn, so a copy has been made by the Queen's dresser Angela Kelly. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex followed closely behind the pair.

They also said that Mr. and Mrs. Michael Middleton, Mr. and Mrs. James Matthews, and Mr. James Middleton would be there to celebrate the special occasion.

Little Louis wore a frilly cream royal christening gown which was an immaculate replica of the intricate gown originally made for Queen Victoria's oldest daughter in 1841.

Kensington Palace announced the six people who have been chosen as godparents to Prince Louis.

Princess Charlotte, three, left her brother Prince George, four, in stitches as she was seen squishing her nose against the window before making a series of hilarious faces towards the crowds.

The former Suits star wore an olive green Ralph Lauren dress, along with a matching Stephen Jones fascinator and green heels.

Meghan was christened and confirmed in the oak-panelled Chapel Royal by the archbishop, who also married her and Harry in May.
