On the day, William and Kate will also be joined by other senior members of the royal family, including the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and the newlyweds, Harry and Meghan - with the christening marking the Duchess' first as a member of the royal family.

But most of the buzz surrounding the event has to do with who will be named as Louis' godparents.

Pippa Middleton flaunted her growing baby bump in an elegant summer dress while braving the crowds at Wimbledon with her brother James.

The event takes place at Chapel Royal of St. James' Palace in London, and only 30 to 40 people are invited to the intimate ceremony.

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the spiritual leader of the world's Anglicans, will lead the service at the Chapel Royal with close friends and family in attendance.

George, who turns five later this month, was also christened in the Chapel Royal.

Prince George has seven godparents - including Zara Tindall - while his little sister Princess Charlotte has five.

Prince Louis's life seems destined to pay homage to the history of his family, particularly the men.

The cream lace and white satin robe is a replica of the robe made for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter in 1841, which is now too delicate to be worn.

Kate Middleton has been wearing the same brand for her children's christening.

And there's a reason why they've chosen to wait until July, as Prince George will have just finished school, as will Princess Charlotte, meaning they'll all be able to attend the special day as the whole family.
