Prince Louis christening: Queen and Duke of Edinburgh to miss event

Pippa Middleton Shows Off Her Baby Bump In Breezy White Dress At Wimbledon Match

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

The UK's Press Association said the decision is understood not to have been taken for health reasons and was mutually agreed by the Queen and Louis' parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, some time ago.

The 16th-century chapel, which is not accessible to the public, is where Louis' four-year-old big brother George was christened in 2013.

The water used in the Lily Font for royal christenings is typically drawn from the Jordan River, believed to be the site of Jesus Christ's baptism.

Following the service The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will host a private tea at Clarence House.

Prince William and Kate Middleton have opted for friends, rather than immediate family members, as is custom for royal children. As well as sharing this historic date with his great-grandparents, his name itself pays tribute to Prince Philip's grandfather, Prince Louis Alexander of Battenberg, and his uncle, Lord Louis Mountbatten (whom both Philip and Prince Charles were close to).

Kate Middleton, as patron of All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, could be set to miss her first Wimbledon in years.

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.

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

It's no surprise that Pippa is reaching for stylish picks while she's pregnant - her sister, Kate Middleton, practically became synonymous with fabulous pregnancy style. (Getty) While the occasion was to celebrate the baby princess, her older brother definitely stole the show.
