Monday was a big day for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Their last born son, Prince Louis, was christened.

As the new family of five arrived at St. James’s Palace, Duchess Kate got to have a word with the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby according to Twitter.

Kate spoke to the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby as he greeted her and her family at Chapel Royal. She was holding a sleeping Prince Louis in her arms.

Noticing this, Welby commented that the little boy looked 'relaxed and peaceful.' The Duchess responded with a joke that most, if not all, parents can relate to.

Welby crouched down to speak to Charlotte, who gave the clergyman a very polite handshake. It's the first time the Cambridge’s were seen together as a family of five.

For the occasion, Kate wore a dress by designer Alexander McQueen. Little Louis was dressed in the same cream gown used for his older sibling’s christenings.
