The youngster will be christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury at The Chapel Royal, St James' Palace, London on Monday 9th July. He was kept to British Royal code and only wore shorts (as his son, Prince George now does) during his toddler years.

Prince Louis's godparents will be expected to be announced on the morning of the christening, with William and Kate again likely to choose mostly close friends for the role. The photograph was released alongside another image of the royal baby with his older sister Princess Charlotte, who was seen giving him a tender kiss on the head.

"Judging by the previous christenings, and the importance of the day for the family, Louis' christening will be a private affair, perhaps no surprise there", James Brookes told Express.

Princess Charlotte is being christened in the church if St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham, Norfolk, where Princess Diana was also christened.

It is understood that the 45-minutes secret service was attended by her now father-in-law, Prince Charles, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall and her husband Prince Harry.
