Prince Louis to be christened at Chapel Royal, Kensington Palace reveals

A Kensington Palace tweet read: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share two photographs of Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, taken by The Duchess at Kensington Palace".

"We'll no doubt have the official christening photos, as we did with Prince George and Princess Charlotte", he continued.

The newborn was last seen in public in April when he was just seven hours old, as he left St Mary's Hospital with mum and dad, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

George, four, was also christened at the Chapel Royal, while three-year-old Charlotte was baptised two months after her birth at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham.

Prince Louis's chosen church already marks a stark difference from his sister Princess Charlotte's christening, though.

It's set to take place on Monday, July 9, according to a statement from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge released via the palace.

Louis will be wearing the same cream lace and satin gown worn by George and Charlotte.
