Kate Middleton Has Worn This Designer at All of Her Children’s Christenings

Princess Charlotte melted hearts as she made an appearance alongside her family at the christening of 11-week-old Prince Louis at St James's Palace on Monday.

Kensington Palace has revealed the identities of Prince Louis' godparents, ahead of the infant's royal christening. The monarch had a busy week last week in Holyrood in Scotland and will be busy this week attending the RAF centenary Tuesday with other members of the royal family.

The Archbishop of Canterbury welcomed the royals, bending down to greet George and Charlotte, who looked happy and content, at the entrance to the chapel.

Kate Middleton, Pippa and Carole seemed to step out in uniform style for Prince Louis' royal christening on Monday, July 9.

The three-year-old had a clear message for paparazzi as she left Prince Louis' christening to go to afternoon tea: "You're not coming".

Prince Louis' third godmother is Lucy Middleton, Kate's cousin on her father's side of the family.

Kate's sister, Pippa, also wore floral stud earrings for the occasion, opting for a modern gold style unlike Kate's pearls. Van Cutsem is one of four brothers who have been close to William and Harry since they were little. Interestingly, Robert is the brother of Sophie Carter, another close friend and confidant of Kate Middleton. She is also godmother to Princess Charlotte.

Pelly, who attended the christening with his wife Lizzy, is perhaps best known for accompanying Princes William and Harry in livelier days on the London nightclub scene, and has previously said he is now "leaving it to the next generation".

It was worn for all royal christenings until 2008, when the Queen commissioned her dressmaker, Angela Kelly, to make a replica in order to preserve the original, the Palace said. Meanwhile the design, although reminiscent of a lady's flowing dress (and reportedly made to reflect Queen Victoria's own wedding gown), was considered unisex and graced both male and female babies.

According to tradition, water from the River Jordan is set to be used for Louis's christening.
