Prince Louis' christening: never seen before24.05.2022
We all look forward to July 9, as it is on this day that Prince Louis , the youngest son of Prince William and Duchess Catherine , will be christened. As it has already become known, they will be held in a narrow family circle, and only godparents and members of the royal family are expected from the guests.

How else will the christening of baby Louis differ from the sacrament of older children?
It will take place in the same chapel where Prince George was baptized, but at a different time. As you know, both George and Charlotte were baptized in the morning: for Louis, the sacrament of the church will begin at 16:00 British time.
A statement released on Kensington Palace’s official website said: “The ceremony will begin at 4:00 pm and will last approximately 40 minutes.”
Recall that at the time of baptism, the younger Cambridge will be a full 11 weeks old, and he will appear in public for the first time since his birth on April 23.
It is worth noting that the baptism of Prince Louis is a truly unique event, because on this day the family of the Dukes of Cambridge will first appear in public in full force of five people!
After their baptism, William and Kate are expected to enjoy their summer holidays with their children at their London residence and at Anmer Hall in Sandringham. In addition, they plan to spend some time in Bucklebury, where Kate’s family lives.
Interestingly, the date of little Louis’s baptism coincides with the engagement date of his great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. 71 years ago, on July 9, 1947, the engagement of Elizabeth II and Prince Philip was officially announced.
