The UK's Press Association said the decision is understood not to have been taken for health reasons and was mutually agreed by the Queen and Louis' parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, some time ago.

Prince Louis was christened today.

Princess Charlotte and Prince George made a memorable appearance on the Buckingham Palace balcony on the afternoon of last month's Trooping the Colour ceremony - part of the Queen's official birthday celebrations.

While attending her little brother Prince Louis' christening on Monday, Princess Charlotte was caught on camera delivering a stern message to photographers.

Nicholas Van Cutsem, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, and Guy Pelly are Prince Louis' godfathers. Looking radiant as she carried her third child, asleep in her arms while clad in his storied christening gown, the proud mom kept with her sartorial tradition as she turned up in a cream Alexander McQueen ensemble and a Jane Taylor headpiece.

While it was widely reported that the 36-year-old recycled the look from her daughter's christening at Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding in May, eagle-eyed fans noted subtle differences.

Britain's Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, leave the christening of Prince Louis at the Chapel Royal, St James's Palace, London on July 9, 2018.

There they would be joined by the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex along with other guests. The two attended Eton together, and he was an usher at William and Kate's 2011 wedding.

The Duchess of Cambridge appeared to make a special gesture to involve her tragic mother-in-law in her grandson's christening.

The young prince, watched on by his older brother George, four, and sister Charlotte, three, was baptised using water from the River Jordan.

Prince William and the former Kate Middleton later hosted a tea at Clarence House, where they served a christening cake made from a tier of their wedding cake, the palace said.

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). He is fifth in line to the throne.

William and Kate asked six friends and family members to be Louis's godparents.

Prince William could then be heard telling Charlotte: "Well done". He has been banned from driving three times, including twice for drink-driving and once for speeding.
