Prince Louis christening: Kate Middleton confirms christening date for royal baby

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's youngest child, born on April 23, will be baptised in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace in London.

This marks a return to the London location, as the couple picked St Mary Magdalene church, on the Queen's estate in Sandringham, Norfolk, for the christening of Princess Charlotte back in 2015.

"The Cambridges are well aware of the media spotlight on and interest in their family - we saw that with the recent photos of Prince George and Princess Charlotte playing at the polo match".

Prince Louis was born on April 23.

Prince Louis' christening date has been confirmed by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Kensington Palace said today.

The baby prince will be baptized by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, who recently Wednesday Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The original garment was created for Queen Victoria for the christening of her eldest daughter, Princess Royal Victoria, but is now considered too fragile for use.

Democrat Adam Schiff said the government was "using the grief, the tears, the pain of these kids as mortar to build our wall". During an appearance on Meet the Press earlier in the day, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway applied the same tactic.

Last month, the prince, who is president of the FA, had to miss the FA Cup final to fulfil best man duties at his brother Harry's wedding.

Prince Louis has a big day on the horizon!

Princess Charlotte was two-months-old.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes told the Express: 'As with George and Charlotte, the Duke and Duchess chose close and trusted friends and aides, rather than immediate family members, and the odds suggest that will be the same with little Prince Louis'. This will be eight-week-old Louis' first official public appearance - and will no doubt be an occasion to behold, with all of the pomp and splendour of a typical royal event.

Sister Princess Charlotte was also christened about two months after Kate gave birth to her.
