Prince Louis's christening: Kensington Palace names the date

James Brookes, a royal expert, told British tabloid The Daily Express that pictures of Prince Louis' christening were likely as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge sought to compromise between their desire for privacy and public desire for information about the event.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, will conduct the the Chapel Royal, St James's Palace, London.

Louis was born in the private Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London, on St George's Day, weighing 8lb 7oz.

It falls neatly between the potential quarter-final and semi-final dates for England, should the national team progress that far in the competition.

Eight-week-old Louis, a younger brother to Prince George and Princess Charlotte, is fifth in line to the throne and a great-grandchild of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.

"If you look back at the birth of Princess Charlotte, she was born on May 2 and her christening was July 5", said Jess Ilse, editorial assistant at the Royal Central.

Kate only first attended the horse racing meet in 2016 four years after her wedding to Prince William, but also attended in 2017.

On Saturday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were spotted at Celia McCorquodale and George Woodhouse's nuptials.

Kate Middleton, 36, gave birth to Prince Louis just under two months ago, and since then has been officially on maternity leave.

With Prince Louis' christening soon to be out of the way, Kate could well fully return to the public eye.

"Prince Louis will be christened by The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby".

William and Kate shared the first photos of Prince Louis in May, along with sweet images of him with big sister Princess Charlotte.
