Prince Louis maybe just a tiny baby, not even two months old, but already the eyes of the world are on him. He was born on the 23rd of April 2018 as Louis Arthur Charles, Prince of Cambridge - a member of the British royal family.

Prince Louis is Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge's third child, and that means that he is fifth in the line of succession to the British throne.

Since the day he was born in St Mary¹s Hospital, Paddington, Royal watchers have been wondering when the baby Prince would be christened.

It is probable that the Dukes of Cambridge will choose to keep Prince Louis christening low-key, with just family and close friends in attendance.

Prince Louis hasn't been seen in public since his birth. Unlike his older brother and sister, Louis was not present at Prince Harry's wedding, nor at his great.-grandmother the Queen’s official birthday.

According to tradition, Louis should be christened within the next few months, just as his siblings were.

Experts in royal protocol expect Kensington Palace to announce the christening for the summer, either late July or early August.

Prince George, who will presumably become King after his grandfather Charles, Prince of Wales, and his father Prince William, was christened in a grand ceremony at the Chapel Royal at St James¹s Palace in London by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Though Louis' christening will be more intimate, it is probable that he will be baptized in the same lace and satin christening gown his cousin Lady Louise Windsor, the daughter of Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex wore at her christening.

The original of the priceless heirloom was made for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Victoria, the Princess Royal, in 1841. Queen Elizabeth had a replica created since the original gown - which is 173 years old - has become too fragile to be worn.

Another question on Royal follower's minds regarding the Prince Louis' christening is who his parents will choose as his godparents. All bets are on Prince Harry and the new Duchess Meghan of Sussex.
