Prince Louis on best behaviour for his big day

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip leave St. George's Chapel after the wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle on May 19

Commissioned by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1840, the font - which was also used at the christenings of Prince William and Duchess Kate's elder children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte - will be filled with water from the River Jordan.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will attend, along with the Cambridges, Prince Charles and Camilla, the Middleton family and Prince Louis' godparents.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte entered holding their father Prince William, 36, hands, while their mother, Kate Middleton followed behind holding Prince Louis in her arms. And like when Prince George and Princess Charlotte, were christened, the couple celebrated by serving slices of fruitcake saved from their wedding to friends and family who attended the event.

The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby welcomed the royals at the entrance to the chapel.

BBC reports that Middleton was overheard saying Louis was "very relaxed and peaceful", and joked to the archbishop that she hopes "he stays like this".

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose two hymns for the ceremony - "O Jesus, I have Promised" and "Lord of All Hopefulness".

Kensington Palace announced earlier today that Louis will have six godparents, including some of William's oldest friends business developer Nicholas van Cutsem, businessman Guy Pelly and Harry Aubrey Fletcher, alongside Lady Laura Meade, and Kate's school friend Hannah Gillingham and her cousin Lucy Middleton.

In the past Charlotte's confident nature has charmed the public, she waved in glee at fans outside the wedding of her uncle Harry and Meghan Markle.

The three-year-old had a clear message for paparazzi as she left Prince Louis' christening to go to afternoon tea: "You're not coming". Prince William was by Kate's side, supportive as ever.

Queen Elizabeth, 92, has also begun to scale back her duties because of her advancing age, handing over some of her responsibilities to her heir, Prince Charles.

Guests included newlyweds the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Prince Louis had a big day on Monday as family and close friends gathered for his royal christening.

Kate has been on maternity leave since the birth of Prince Louis, who was born on April 22, 2018.
