Palace says UK's Prince Louis to be christened July 9

Prince William and Kate Middleton add the young prince will be christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.

Just like his brother and sister, Prince Louis will be christened not long after being born.

The Prince was born Louis Arthur Charles at 11.01am on 23 April at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington weighing 8lbs 7oz.

July the 9th, 2018- the day of Prince Louis' christening, will also mark the anniversary of the Queen and Prince Philip's engagement in 1947, exactly 71 years earlier.

George's christening at the same venue in October 2013 was an intimate occasion, with only 23 guests attending.

Princess Charlotte was two-months-old.

The christening of Prince Louis will take place on July 9. It's the same place Prince George was baptized, but Princess Charlotte's was held at St. Mary Magdalene Church at the Queen's Sandringham estate in Norfolk, according to BBC News.

It's not yet known who Prince Louis' godparents will be, but punters seem to believe soon-to-be former private secretary Miguel Head and his childhood nanny Tiggy Legge-Bourke are favourites in the running.

On Saturday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were spotted at Celia McCorquodale and George Woodhouse's nuptials.

As of Wednesday, we know what's next up on the royal schedule that'll draw the family together once again: Prince Louis's christening.

If his siblings' ceremonies are anything to go by, Prince Louis' christening will be a private affair.

His next public appearance is likely to be his christening, for which no public date has been announced.

Meghan was christened and confirmed at the same venue by the Archbishop of Canterbury ahead of her wedding at Windsor Castle in May.
