Prince Louis, the third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, was baptized on Monday at the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace.

PRINCESS Charlotte issued a cheeky remark to royal snappers as she stole the show for the second time today at Prince Louis' christening.

Proud parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made their way into the service in London with their three children.

The family of five stepped out for the first time looking picture ideal.

Prince Louis' six godparents are all friends and family of Prince William and Middleton: Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, Lady Laura Meade, Mrs. Robert Carter and Lucy Middleton.

After being worn by 62 royal babies, including Queen Elizabeth II and Prince William, the gown was deemed too fragile to wear, so a replica was created to continue the tradition.

Louis will wear the handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, which in 2008 replaced the original which had been worn for all royal christenings since that of Queen Victoria's eldest daughter in 1841.

Kensington Palace has not released the guest list, but newlyweds the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expected to attend, along with Kate's pregnant sister Pippa Middleton and their brother James Middleton.

Being the best big sister to Prince Louis she could be, little Charlotte made a decision to take a pamphlet from Prince Louis's christening with her as a souvenir.

The duchess dazzled in a cream Alexander McQueen creation at Princess Charlotte's christening in 2015.

Speaking to the BBC on 6 July, the Archbishop of Canterbury, who will conduct the christening revealed, "You know, if you're at the wedding don't drop the rings and if you're at the baptism don't drop the baby".

Prince Louis was born on April 23 and is a younger brother to Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 3.

In addition to the cake, Prince Louis's christening gown was also recycled.

Prince Harry has paid around $10,000 for a first edition "Winnie-the-Pooh" for nephew Louis' christening.

Will and Kate chose two hymns, two lessons and two anthems for the christening.

The 34-year-old accessorized her outfit with a light blue fascinator and $695 Jimmy Choo pumps in a matching hue, along with a $1500 clutch by the same designer.
