Little Louis wore a frilly cream royal christening gown which was an immaculate replica of the intricate gown originally made for Queen Victoria's oldest daughter in 1841.

Following the service, where Prince Louis was flanked by six godparents, the royals made their way to Clarence House where they enjoyed an intimate afternoon tea with guests.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, left the chapel alongside the family.

The Queen, who didn't attend the christening of Prince Louis, appeared to be in high spirits at the RAF celebration.

The chapel holds tremendous significance for the royal family: Louis' elder brother Prince George was also christened there, and the chapel was where the late Princess Diana's body was laid before her funeral.

Louis' godparents are a mix of close friends and family members: Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, The Lady Laura Meade and Robert Carter are all friends of the Duke and Duchess' and and Lucy Middleton is Kate's cousin.

After Meghan Markle confirmed her father Thomas won't attend the wedding, Prince Charles offered to walk the bride down the aisle.

According to the post, the Duchess of Cambridge was christened on June 20, 1982, which just so happens to be the day before Prince William was born.

Queen Elizabeth, 92, has also begun to scale back her duties because of her advancing age, handing over some of her responsibilities to her heir, Prince Charles.

Then the couple will have a whole day of activities in Dublin on Wednesday, including a trip to Trinity College, to see the Book of Kells, considered one of Ireland's greatest cultural treasures.

The queen, dressed in a royal blue outfit with turquoise edging, later hosted a ceremony to present the RAF with a new Queen's Colour, at which she recognised the service's work.

Prince George and his younger sister, Princess Charlotte, were snapped at Buckingham Palace watching a Royal Air Force flypast from a window.
