The Duke and Duchess's second child "made hearts melt" as she walked into the Royal Chapel at St James' Palace holding her father's hand, says the Daily Express.

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.

Harry's hope is to establish a library for Louis, who was born on April 23, in tribute to the baby's late grandmother, Princess Diana, The Sun claims.

Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, conducted the service, and he said that he was "delighted and privileged" to christen the newest prince.

He was set to wear the same gown worn by his older siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Prince William was an RAF search-and-rescue pilot, while his brother, Harry, served as an air traffic controller and helicopter pilot with the Army Air Corps - serving two tours of duty in Afghanistan.

Prince William and his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, announced the little prince's godparents at the chapel - and no, they are not Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Prince Louis was sleeping as he arrived at the ceremony, held by his mother.

Kate's younger sister Pippa Middleton and her husband, James Matthews were also present.

She may be only 3 years old, but Princess Charlotte showed off her confident nature with a cheeky remark as she left her brother Prince Louis' christening.

Louis is wearing an Angela Kelly-designed replica of the "royal christening robe", based on the original version which was commissioned by original gown was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841.

Pelly, who has been a loyal friend to both Prince William and Prince Harry despite a reputation for encouraging them astray, has previously run night spots including Mahiki and Whisky Mist.

Aubrey-Fletcher is yet another longtime friend of William's, according to People.

Welby, who will baptise the baby by pouring holy water from the River Jordan over his head, said the event would be "very nerve-wracking" but "a great privilege".

Next is Hannah Carter, an old friend of Kate Middleton's from Marlborough College who is married to Robert Carter.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, went the Kate Middleton way of things and wore a single colour head to toe.
