Members of the Royal Family attended Prince Louis' christening today, and the Duchess of Sussex dazzled with her designer dress while on aunt duty. 

A short video clip was shared to Kensington Palace's official Twitter account and shows the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex arrive at St. James's Palace. 

As reported by Harper's Bazaar, Meghan wore an olive-colored Ralph Lauren creation which she paired with a Stephen Jones hat and matching high heeled shoes.

Meghan and Prince Harry have been prone to public displays of affection and Louis' christening was no exception. They could be seen holding hands. 

While most members of the Royal Family would shy away from affectionate displays in public, the newlyweds have been breaking tradition since announcing their engagement last year. 

Prince Harry looked dapper in a dark blue suit with a white shirt and light blue tie. Even though they weren't named as Prince Louis' godparents, they still showed their support. 


Instead, Prince William and Kate chose several of their friends, including Lucy Middleton, Hannah Carter, and Lady Laura Meade, who were bestowed with the privilege of being Louis's godparents. 

Lucy is Kate's cousin, while Hannah is a friend from their school days. Lady Laure Meade attended Eton with Prince William. 

Prince Louis, who is 11 weeks old, was born on April 23 and was baptized by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, as reported by BBC

The 97-year-old Prince Philip also wasn't present. He retired from active duty last year and struggle on occasion with his hip since undergoing surgery back in April

Kate, ever the fashion icon, turned heads in a McQueen outfit and a Jane Taylor hat, her favorite designers. Her sister, Pippa, was also in attendance.
