Here's Why Guests at Prince Louis' christening are eating 7-Year-Old cake



Here's How Prince Louis's Christening Compares to His Older Brother and Sister's

The lovely and adorable Prince Louis was christened today in London. Royal baptisms are a major tradition within the family, because aside from it being the beginning of a child's spiritual journey, it's usually the baby's first appearance after their initial post-birth photo op. Here's how Prince Louis's christening stacks up to those that came before his.

LOCATION

Prince Louis was christened in the Chapel Royal at St. James Palace in London. Prince George was also christened there in 2013, three months after his birth, but Princess Charlotte was christened at the church of St Mary Magdalene in Norfolk, near Queen Elizabeth's Sandringham estate.

Louis's father, Prince William, was christened at Buckingham Palace.

GOWN

Like his older siblings and members of the extended family (like Princess Eugenie and Beatrice), Prince Louis was christened in a replica of a lacy Victorian era-gown used for over 60 royal babies of years past. The gown was copied in 2004 when the OG version was deemed to fragile for future use (and was stored safely in royal archives somewhere).

GODPARENTS

Prince Louis's godparents were announced the morning of the christening, and they include members of the extended Middleton and royal families as well as friends of the couple. The godparents are:

Mr. Nicholas van Cutsem, Mr. Guy Pelly, Mr. Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, The Lady Laura Meade, Mrs. Robert Carter, andMiss Lucy Middleton.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were left off this list, but that doesn't necessarily mean there's drama brewing in the fam. Prince Harry has not served as godparents for the two older Cambridge bbs, George and Charlotte, and it's because he's already a member of the immediate family, which means he'll have plenty of influence on the children's lives as is.

ATTENDANTS

Most notably, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip did not attend Louis's christening today. Again, there's no drama or shade to be thrown here, but apparently the 92 and 97 year old monarchs have had a very busy few weeks, and the queen wants to rest up before some major stuff happening in the coming days (mainly a visit with President Trump, which, let's be honest, takes all the energy one can muster). Prince Philip is now only doing royal appearances when absolutely necessary.

THE PRAM

When Princess Charlotte was baptized, Kate Middleton walked her into the chapel in an adorable pram, thus creating one of the best photo sequences on record of Prince George.

Kate Middleton held both Prince George and Louis as she brought them into the chapel at St. James Palace, so it's possible that Charlotte was rolled because of the different location.

THE LILY FONT AND CHRISTENING WATER

Per royal tradition, children in the family are baptized with water flown in from the River Jordan, but it's possible that Prince William got Louis's himself considering he was just in the country.

The family traditionally puts this water in the gilded Lily Font, which is part of the royal family's Crown Jewels.

While it hasn't been confirmed that these two traditions were carried on during Prince Louis's christening, they were for both George and Charlotte's.
