Between that and the Queen bowing out of a service at St. Paul’s Cathedral that she was expected to attend (but wasn’t feeling up to), royal watchers are growing more and more concerned about the state of the Queen’s health and what that may mean moving forward.
And just yesterday, the Duchess of Sussex attended Prince Louis’ christening wearing a deep green bespoke Ralph Lauren draped dress-paired with a low, slick ponytail. The robe is a family heirloom that dates all the way back to 1841, when Queen Victoria’s oldest daughter wore it for her christening.
Louis, the fifth in line to the British throne who was born on April 23, was christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury at The Chapel Royal of St James’s Palace in central London on Monday. Alexander McQueen has previously designed Kate’s wedding dress as well as ensembles for the previous two christenings as well.
But big sister Princess Charlotte, being the natural scene stealer she is, still managed to nab the spotlight-even if only for a moment. Reportedly there’s a junior position called the “cinder” who breaks in new shoes for the Queen, which is basically the next best thing to becoming royalty. 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.
Princess Charlotte wore a blue, flowered dress, while brother Prince George, who turns five later this month, was outfitted in a white shirt and blue shorts.
According to Kensington Palace, the couple named several of their closest friends along with a few distant relatives as the prince’s godparents including Mr. Nicholas van Cutsem, Mr. Guy Pelly, Mr. Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, The Lady Laura Meade, Mrs. Robert Carter, and Miss Lucy Middleton.
What did Prince George wear?
Kate Middleton was all smiles at her son, Prince Louis’, christening at The Chapel Royal at Saint James’s Palace in London on Monday.
She was joined by Prince William, Prince Harry, Markle, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte to the ceremony that was held at the Chapel Royal. He was accompanied by his parents, of course.
Prince William and Kate Middleton, of course, also looked happier than ever to watch their third child get christened.
