  • Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip leave St. George's Chapel after the wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle on May 19

A royal source said it had been agreed some time ago that the queen would not attend and her absence was not due to any health issues.

Meghan has frequently turned to Clare Waight Keller of Givenchy, her wedding dress designer, for bespoke pieces since joining the Royal Family - much like Kate with Alexander McQueen.

The Queen, who travelled back from... As the palace further explains, "the original gown was subsequently worn for all Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren".

At Prince Louis' christening this afternoon at St James's Palace, the three-year-old was spotted hand-in-hand with her parents as she made her way into the chapel for the service.

Kate's sister, Pippa, also wore floral stud earrings for the occasion, opting for a modern gold style unlike Kate's pearls.

Louis was born on April 23 - St. George's Day, England's national day - at St Mary's Hospital in central London weighing eight pounds and seven ounces (3.8 kilogrammes).

Prince Harry has paid around $10,000 for a first edition "Winnie-the-Pooh" for nephew Louis' christening. Guests included Prince Charles and his wife Camilla as well as Prince Harry and his new wife Meghan Markle.

The little prince was also christened in the Lily Font, a silver gilt font and bowl decorated in lilies, ivy and cherubs.


The godparents are all friends or family of William and Kate.

Prince Louis, who snoozed peacefully through proceedings, appeared to know he was in safe hands.

Pelly, who has been a loyal friend to both Prince William and Prince Harry despite a reputation for encouraging them astray, has previously run night spots including Mahiki and Whisky Mist.

Van Cutsem's father was one of Prince Charles's closest friends.

One of Harry's happiest childhood memories was being read a bedtime story by his mother. He helped organize William's bachelor party and is married to an American, Holiday Inn heiress Lizzie Wilson. The Duke of Cambridge wore a classic navy suit with white shirt and blue tie.

Seriously, girl, you've got this whole smile-and-wave thing down to a science (and we can't get enough).

Prince Louis' third godmother is Lucy Middleton, Kate's cousin on her father's side of the family. Water from the River Jordan will be used during the baptism. The christening cake served at the tea is a tier taken from William and Kate's eight-tier wedding cake.
