Prince Louis's godparents have been announced — and Meghan and Harry didn't make the cut

All of these people are close friend or family of Their Royal Highnesses, in a statement released by Kensington Palace.

Newlyweds the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are likely to put in an appearance, as are Kate's pregnant sister Pippa Matthews, and her brother James Middleton.

Prince Louis just several hours after his birth. They are all friends and family of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Following the special service, the Cambridges will pose for the first official family photos.

Louis Arthur Charles weighed 8lb 7oz when he was born in the private Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London, on 23 April.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, tweeted Monday that he is "delighted" to be christening the third child of Prince William and Catherine. The Queen and Prince Philip will not be in attendance, though a busy schedule and retirement have been cited by Buckingham Palace as the reason.

The ceremony will entail all the centuries-old traditions of a royal baby's baptism.

Are you excited to see new pictures of Prince Louis?

Prince William is Grace's godfather.




For Prince George's christening, Prince William's wife opted for a white dress with ruffle detail.

Part of the British monarchy since 1841, the Lily Font will be used to baptise Prince Louis.

Charlotte, who is three, was christened in 2015 at the 16th-century Church of St Mary Magdalene on the queen's country estate in Sandringham in eastern England.

Prince George has seven godparents, while Princess Charlotte has five.

On May 19, before she had even confirmed she was expecting, Pippa seemed to be glowing at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding in a mint green and patterned silk dress.

Kate Middleton has become one of the biggest royal fashion icons in the world, and it looks like her style is already trickling down to her daughter Princess Charlotte.

Here are 13 times Kate Middleton and Princess Charlotte had the ideal mother-daughter style.

Also attending are Kate's parents, her brother and sister and Louis's six godparents, who are close friends or relatives of William and Kate.

Last year, Pippa Middleton and her mother Carole were initially demoted in the stands simple to cause a delay.
