Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended Prince Louis' royal christening.

As for Prince Louis's christening, it will be performed by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the same bishop who christened Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

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.

Following Prince Louis' christening at the Royal Chapel at St James's Palace in London, the young royal had a stern message for the swarms of photographers: "You're not coming".

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

The hymns wereI, Jesus, I Have Promised and Lord of All Hopefulness, whilethe anthems are This is the day which the Lord hath made and Suo Gan, a traditional Welsh lullaby.

Members of the royal family congregated at the private ceremony on Monday afternoon including siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.

They include Kate's cousin Lucy Middleton, Nicholas van Cutsem, whose daughter was a bridesmaid at the wedding of Harry and Meghan in May, and Guy Pelly, a childhood friend of William's.

It's official! The new royal couple exchanged their vows at a royal ceremony at Windsor Castle, near London, in England.

The Lily Font and water from the River Jordan will be used during the baptism.

It may have been Prince Louis' christening, but it was his big sister Princess Charlotte's sassy off-hand remark that stole the show.

The christening will be a small affair for immediate family, the godparents and their spouses. The main dish of tea was the wedding cake (or rather, the rest of his part), Kate and William, which they keep with 2011.

Mr. Harry Aubrey-Fletcher attended both Ludgrove prep school and Eton with William.
