According to Kensington Palace, Prince Louis is wearing a handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, made by Angela Kelly, Dressmaker to The Queen.

The prince will be baptized in the Lily Font, a silver font ordered by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert for the baptism of their daughter Victoria in 1841.

She clutched the piece of paper, which actually looks to be about a third of her size, to her side as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with Princes George and Louis, exited the baby's christening on Monday.

Louis was born on April 24 - St. George's Day, England's national day - at St Mary's hospital in central London weighing 3.8kg.

Prince Louis' 40-minute christening service was a small family affair though Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh were not in attendance.

On Monday just before the christening, the palace confirmed that the gown would be worn by Louis once more to continue the royal tradition. Welby recently officiated at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, on May 19.

Guy Pelly, renowned high society nightclub founder, will make up the sextet, after moving on from his hedonistic days with Princes William and Harry.

Yesterday Prince Louis became the eighth royal baby to be christened in the replica Honiton lace and white satin gown first used at the christening of James, Viscount Severn in 2008.

Hours before the ceremony, Prince Louis' godparents were revealed in an official statement from the palace.

Prior to the christening William and Kate announced six friends and family members to be Louis' godparents.

What did Princess Charlotte wear?

He is a close friend of both Prince William and Prince Harry - helping to organise the former's stag do - and was dubbed the pair's "court jester".

At the baptism of Prince George in 2013 at the same chapel, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a cream-coloured Alexander McQueen dress with a distinctive ruffle down the chest.
