According to reports, Harry marked the occasion with an incredibly rare first-edition copy of A.A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh - dating back to 1926 - which he bought from Peter Harrington, a rare book store in London.

The royal family (aka Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and Queen Elizabeth II) stepped out onto the balcony of Buckingham Palace yet again to observe and celebrate the royal flypast.

The Royal Christening Robe was made in 1841 for the christening of Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Victoria, Princess Royal.

The six godparents of Prince Louis including Guy Pelly, Nicholas van Cutsem, Lady Laura Meade, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, Robert Carter and Lucy Middleton also graced the ceremony. Kate Middleton went with an icy blue dress by her go-to designer, Alexander McQueen, and a hat by Sean Barrett.

A royal source said it had been agreed some time ago that the queen, 92, would not attend and her absence was not due to any health issues.

And while there's no royal rule on the colour she should wear, Kate has opted to wear neutral white or cream at all of them.

Donald Trump's criticisms are preposterous, says London mayor Sadiq Khan
He defended the protests to Sky TV on Friday, saying, "it's not for me to decide what's in good taste, or bad taste". Further, for all of 2017, the homicide rate per 100,000 population was 1.2 for London , compared with 3.4 for NY .

From the duchess's side, Kate's parents Michael and Carole, brother James, pregnant sister Pippa and her husband James Matthews were there.

While attending Prince Louis' christening, big sister Princess Charlotte gave photographers a sassy message and a stare-down.

Before going into the christening, which took place at the Royal Chapel at St James" Church in London on Sunday, Charlotte shook hands with the Archbishop of Canterbury, looking rather proud of herself when her dad told her "well done'.

Before the ceremony, Meghan was spotted sharing a laugh with the Most Reverend Justin Welby, who also baptised her ahead of her wedding to Harry in May.

Guests at Prince Louis' christening can look forward to a special slice of seven-year-old cake, following royal tradition.

What a magnificent (and elegant) way to welcome tiny Prince Louis to the faith and the royal family.
