Who's attending Prince Louis' christening?

When Prince Louis is baptised on Monday at the Chapel Royal, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to keep to convention.

Kate's parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, will be present, alongside her sister Pippa and husband James Matthews, and brother James.

Prince Louis is the third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and fifth in line to the throne.

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the spiritual leader of the world's Anglicans, will lead the service at the Chapel Royal with close friends and family in attendance. (Carter and van Straubenzee are exes, but that's fine y'all.) KMid's cousin Adam Middleton was also named as a godfather, and William's cousin Laura Fellowes (the daugher of Princess Diana's sister Lady Jane Fellowes) was named a godmother.

For the most part, Kate and William haven't thus far picked prominent family members, royal or otherwise, to be godparents for their children.

It is the first time the Cambridge family have been seen together as a family of five.

Louis is wearing an Angela Kelly-designed replica of the "royal christening robe", based on the original version which was commissioned by original gown was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841.

As the christening of Prince Louis is today, royal fans have been taking a look back at his mother, Kate Middleton's christening photos.

The Queen and Prince Philip will not attend Prince Louis's christening this afternoon according to Buckingham Palace.

Following the service, the Royals and guests headed over to Charles and Camilla's home Clarence House for a private tea, which included christening cake which is actually a tier from Kate and William's wedding cake.
