Prince Louis' Godparents Revealed After Queen Elizabeth Announces She Would Not Attend

Harry, Meghan, William and Kate joined the Queen, other prominent members of the royal family as well as Prime Minister Theresa May at the beginning of a day of events.

Kate Middleton and Prince William left Prince Louis at home to attend the 100th birthday of the Royal Air Force Tuesday morning.

And little Charlotte couldn't resist sticking her tongue out at crowds while stood alongside her brother - who also pulled a face or two.

The 6 godparents, who also attended with their spouses, are all friends or family of William and Kate.

It may have been her baby brother's christening but - once again- Princess Charlotte was the star of the show.

"I'm delighted and privileged to be christening Prince Louis today - a precious child made in God's image, just as we all are", Archbishop Justin Welby said on Twitter before the ceremony.

Prior to the event, Kensington Palace released the names of Louis' godparents: Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher and the Lady Laura Meade, as well as Mrs. Robert Carter (or Hannah Gillingham, Middleton's college friend) and Lucy Middleton (the duchess' cousin).

It's understood he's keen to build up a library for his nephews Prince Louis and Prince George, 4, and niece Princess Charlotte, 4, in memory of the late Princess Diana.

Upon hearing his daughter's sweet admonishment, Prince William let slip a slight smirk. Pippa and her big sister have a similar taste in fashion, as Pippa wore a stunning baby blue Alessandra Rich dress which looked similar to the Alexander McQueen frock that the Duchess wore at her wedding in 2017.

Afterward, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hosted a tea party at Clarence House and served a portion of their wedding cake that they had saved since 2011.

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.

After a attractive ceremony at the St George's Chapel, the two left in a carriage to take a tour around Windsor.
