In news that is melting our hearts this morning, Prince Louis of Cambridge has been christened at St Jame’s Palace in London. The christening marks the official first outing of the family as a family of five and we can’t contain our excitement over the cute family photos.
Days before the christening, the palace announced that Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth won’t be attending the christening to conserve the Queen’s energy as she has upcoming royal engagements.
Still in attendance however is the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Kate’s parents, brother James and sister Pippa. The event was intimate with only 30 guests in attendance including the six godparents. The godfathers include three of Prince William’s friends Nicholas van Cutsem, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher and Guy Pelly. Meanwhile, the godmothers include Kate Middleton’s cousin Lucy Middleton, school friend Hanna Carter and another of Prince William’s friend, Lady Laura Meade.
Meghan Markle was seen wearing an olive green Ralph Lauren dress, with matching Stephen Jones fascinator and green heels.
The Duke of Sussex reportedly spent $14 000 on an incredibly rare first edition copy of A.A Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh as a gift for his nephew. The book was first published in 1926 and was reportedly bought from Peter Harrington, which is a rare bookstore in London.
Prince Harry is planning to build a library for his niece and nephews as a tribute for his mother and their grandmother, Princess Diana.
A source from The Sun reveals, “One of Harry’s happiest childhood memories was being read a bedtime story by his mother. She loved all the old classics and Harry had the brilliant idea of starting a little library of first editions for Louis, Charlotte and George to enjoy as they get older.”
