The announcement of Prince Louis' christening was made today on Twitter by Kensington Palace.

Prince Louis, the son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, will be christened on July 9, Kensington Palace has revealed.

He weighed eight pounds seven ounces (3.83 kg) and is the third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Kate Middleton and Prince William missed his cousin's wedding.

If his siblings' ceremonies are anything to go by, Prince Louis' christening will be a private affair. "Harry and Meghan were there lending royal support to his cousin", Fitzwilliams said.
