Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, revealed that their youngest son, Prince Louis, would be baptized next month in the chapel where Meghan Markle's christening took place.


Louis, to whom Middleton gave birth on April 23, 2018, is scheduled to be baptized on Monday, July 9, at the Chapel Royal, at St. James' Palace, in London.

The announcement was made by the Kensington Palace through its Twitter account on Wednesday, June 20, allowing royal fans and followers to learn of the big date.

Louis will be following in his siblings' footsteps since his christening will be conducted by Most Reverend Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, who baptized Prince George and Princess Charlotte.


Most Reverend Welby was also the man who officiated Prince Harry and Markle's wedding on May 19, 2018, so it is obvious how fond the Royal Family is of the Archbishop.

Prince Louis'service will take place in the small Chapel Prince George was baptized in October 2013. Prince Charlotte's christening, however, was held at Sandringham’s St. Mary Magdalene church, in Norfolk.


Curiously, St. Magdalene was the same church where Princess Diana was baptized. So far, little else is known regarding the young Prince's christening, but Prince William and Middleton are expected to release photos of the ceremony shortly after.

When Charlotte was baptized, her official portrait was shared with the public. The little Princess, a mere baby back then, was photographed wearing a gown inspired by the one worn by Queen Victoria's daughter back in 1841.

Kate Middleton, all dressed in white, posed for the camera while gently holding baby Charlotte, and William, who sported a classic navy three-piece-suit, held onto Prince George who was caught playing with his hair at the time.
