The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with Prince Louis

Other guests included Louis' new aunt Meghan Markle, who wore a green Ralph Lauren outfit with a Stephen Jones hat alongside her husband of two months, Prince Harry.

At Prince Louis' christening this afternoon at St James's Palace, the three-year-old was spotted hand-in-hand with her parents as she made her way into the chapel for the service.

He was christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury at The Chapel Royal of St. James's Palace in central London.

Kate arrived holding a sleeping Prince Louis in her arms, while William looked after Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose hymns O Jesus, I Have Promised and Lord of All Hopefulness for the ceremony. Prince Louis godparents are Lady Laura Meade, Hannah Carter, Lucy Middleton, Nicholas van Cutsem, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher and Guy Pelley.

Prince Harry has purchased a first edition of the famous novel, Winnie-the-Pooh, for £8,000.

The Palace also announced that the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would all be in attendance.

Royal expert James Brookes said earlier that Prince William and Middleton would make a compromise at Prince Louis' christening.

Prince William and Kate Middleton, of course, also looked happier than ever to watch their third child get christened.

The Duke of Sussex is understood to have bought the 1926 A.A. Milne book - of which 30,000 were printed in the first run - from Peter Harrington in London.

Guests were served slices of christening cake, which is a tier taken from The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding cake.

Every subsequent royal christening, until that of James, Viscount Severn, in 2008, featured the original gown of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin. As is tradition, the holy water used in the ceremony will be drawn from the River Jordan.

Her 4-year-old brother, George, wore navy blue shorts and a white button-front shirt with blue trimming by Amaia Kids. On June 18, Zara Tindallwelcomed her second daughter.
