Prince Louis of Cambridge's christening will take place on July 9, Kensington Palace has announced.

His big sister, Princess Charlotte was christened at St Mary Magdalene church on the Queen's estate in July 2015, two months after she was born. The date coincidently falls a week after Prince George finishes his school year and Princess Charlotte breaks for the summer.

Prince Louis, the third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, is to be baptised on 9 July, Kensington Palace has announced.

'Prince Louis will be christened by The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby'. His siblings were each baptized in the same gown design that a whopping 62 of their ancestors also wore, according to Romper.

The Queen is head of the Church of England and Louis' father William will one day take on this role when he becomes king.

"Judging by the previous christenings, and the importance of the day for the family, Louis' christening will be a private affair, perhaps no surprise there", James Brookes told Express.

Newlyweds the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are likely to attend the family celebration.

Welby also presided over Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's royal wedding at Windsor Castle a month ago on May 19.

And the christening itself is quite the family tradition, Royal Central U.K. notes, adding Prince Louis will also wear a replica of the now-famous Honiton lace christening gown.
