Pippa Middleton Shows Off Her Baby Bump In Breezy White Dress At Wimbledon Match

Pippa Middleton flaunted her growing baby bump in an elegant summer dress while braving the crowds at Wimbledon with her brother James.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's family of five will be seen together for the first time on Monday when Prince Louis is christened.

Meghan was christened and confirmed in the oak-panelled Chapel Royal by the archbishop, who also married her and Harry in May. Just like his siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the young prince will be baptized into the Church of England, the state church of England, of which the queen is Supreme Governor.

The robe is a replica of the intricate lace and satin dress made for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter in 1841.

Ladbrokes says Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, is unlikely to be asked to guide baby Louis in the Christian faith.

Prince William's private secretary, Miguel Head, who is set to step down from his role later this month is the bookies' favourite to be one of the godparents.

Kate Middleton and Prince William have announced all the details surrounding their third child's christening, from the date to the location.

Just like Prince George and Princess Beatrice, Prince Louis will be christened at the Chapel Royal in St James' Palace in London.

Louis, who is fifth in line to the throne, will be dressed in the same frilly cream gown used by his older brother and sister, George and Charlotte.

Bookmakers are predicting Prince William and Kate will choose friends over family as Prince Louis' godparents.

When the Prince was born on 23 April, Louis Arthur Charles weighed 8lb 7oz.

Two days after he was born, William said he was sleeping "reasonably well so far, so he's behaving himself, which is good".

What will Prince Louis wear at his christening?

Prince Louis will be christened in the Lily Font, a silver gilt font and bowl decorated in lilies, ivy and cherubs.
