Britain's Prince Louis, son of Prince William and Kate Middleton-the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge-will be christened today in a private ceremony in London. The newly minted Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harryand Meghan Markle will also be in attendance as will James Middleton, expectant Pippa Middletonand her husband James Matthews.
The event was presided over by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby; he's the same Archbishop, in fact, who recently married Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, and also baptized George and Charlotte at their ceremonies.
She was heard describing her son as "very relaxed and peaceful", and told the Archbishop with a smile: "I hope he stays like this".
The youngest royal member had his christening and his family came together to help the little prince celebrate the blessed event. The original is now too fragile to wear, so the queen commissioned the copy from her royal dressmaker, Angela Kelly.
