Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announce six godparents for Prince Louis

The royal pair both attended Prince George's 2013 christening and Princess Charlotte's service back in 2015.

The Cambridges have previously chosen close friends and confidantes for the role.

The event took place months after the royal wedding and saw the attendance of close-knit members of the family, although Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip couldn't be present.

Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William leave the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital with their new baby boy, Prince Louis, in London, on April 23, 2018.

Prince Louis has been christened in a private ceremony.

Princess Charlotte even managed to give her signature royal wave on the way to the reception (despite the aforementioned giant piece of paper in hand), meaning she hasn't forgotten her duty to the people and the royal crown.

The appearance was particularly poignant as it was the time the Cambridge's appeared in public as a family of five.

PRINCESS Charlotte issued a cheeky remark to royal snappers as she stole the show for the second time today at Prince Louis' christening.

Miss Middleton and Mr Pelly each read a lesson during the service, Kensington Palace said.

Kate's mother, Carole Middleton, wore a 1940s style silk crepe dress by Suzannah retailing for around $2,220 AUD.

While it was widely reported that the 36-year-old recycled the look from her daughter's christening at Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding in May, eagle-eyed fans noted subtle differences.

Kate's sister Pippa is expecting her first child.

The duchess added, with a smile: "I hope he stays like this".

Prince Louis's christening gown is the same one that was used by his siblings.

Louis will wear the handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, which in 2008 replaced the original which had been worn for all royal christenings since that of Queen Victoria's eldest daughter in 1841.
