Hisgrandparents, Prince Charles and Camila, werein attendance, as will as his uncle and aunt, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

According to the royal family's official website, Prince Louis' christening will feature a few other traditions.

"I'm delighted and privileged to be christening Prince Louis today - a precious child made in God's image, just as we all are", Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said on Twitter.

The Duchess of Sussex looked stunning in a demure, belted black dress from Dior with her favored boatneck neckline and a wild, Stephen Jones fascinator that she makes look chic.

Also attending were Kate's parents, her brother and sister and Louis' six godparents, who are close friends or relatives of William and Kate.

The Palace also confirmed that Kate Middleton and Prince William's youngest child will wear the handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, made by Angela Kelly, Dressmaker to The Queen.

Prince Charles, Prince William's father, his wife Camilla, attended along with Prince Harry and his wife Meghan.

What a magnificent (and elegant) way to welcome tiny Prince Louis to the faith and the royal family.

It's understood he's keen to build up a library for his nephews Prince Louis and Prince George, 4, and niece Princess Charlotte, 4, in memory of the late Princess Diana.

Queen Elizabeth II has returned to the royal spotlight one day after her absence from great-grandson Prince Louis' christening, with the monarch attending the 100th birthday celebrations of the Royal Air Force on Tuesday. 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). While Harry also wore a blue suit and light blue tie, Meghan opted for an olive Ralph Lauren dress with a matching headpiece and Manolo Blanik pumps.

She kept her eye on the press pack as she and the rest of the family headed off for a private afternoon tea at Clarence House.
