Britain's Prince Louis, the baby son of Prince William and his wife Kate, is due to be christened at a private ceremony at St James's Palace in London on Monday, July 9, 2018.

The christening party of the newly addition to the royal family was attended by many royal family members, including Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Catherine's sister Pippa, who is expecting her first child, was also at the special occasion with her husband James Matthews, along with their parents Michael and Carole Middleton.

Prince William and Princess Kate have announced the godparents for today's christening of Prince Louis at the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose two hymns for the ceremony - "O Jesus, I have Promised" and "Lord of All Hopefulness". James, Queen Elizabeth II's youngest grandchild, was the first to wear the replica, which Her Majesty commissioned to preserve the original.

The three-year-old was walking hand-in-hand with her dad, Prince William, after her younger brother's christening service when she told waiting photographers: "You're not coming", according to The Sun. "The Queen would have approved that trip, she would have made sure she was happy with the itinerary".

Per the official royal website, "Following the service, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will give a private tea at Clarence House".

The Prince has promised to build an exclusive library for Louis in memory of Princess Diana and the 1926 AA Milne classic is the library's first book.

Welby baptised Louis by pouring holy water from the River Jordan over his head.

Her 4-year-old brother, George, wore navy blue shorts and a white button-front shirt with blue trimming by Amaia Kids.

Earlier on, the godparents and their spouses, as well as Kate's family were seen entering the church.
