     NO ATTENDING The Queen and the Duke are not missing the christening due to health

Trust Prince Louis' christening at St. James's Palace on Monday (July 9) to bring out the best in Royal Family style.

The Duchess of Cambridge, who cradled her younger son in his lace and satin dress, was joined by the Duke for the 40-minute ceremony, with siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte holding their father's hands tightly.

Following the church service, the guests were invited to a private tea at Clarence House, residence of Prince Charles and his wife Camilla.

The Duchess of Cambridge has now chosen the British fashion label for all three of her children's baptisms.

The prince's six godparents were among the guests including the duke's close friend Guy Pelly - who was once dubbed William and Harry's "court jester" for his wild ways. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip were not in attendance.

According to Kensington Palace, Prince Louis wore a handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, which was made in 1841 and was used for christening Queen Victoria's eldest daughter.

Despite still being on maternity leave after giving birth to Prince Louis only 11 weeks ago, it is understood her mother Kate felt it was "important" to attend today's celebrations.

E! News has learned the Duchess of Cambridge opted for a cream Alexander McQueen dress.

Princess Charlotte had a sassy message for photographers as she left her brother's christening on Monday: "You're not coming".

If some of the name sounds familiar, it's because several members of Prince Louis' list are related to godparents chosen for the other tiny royals.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended Prince Louis' royal christening.

Prince George, who turns five later this month, looked quite nonplussed despite the significance of the occasion.

They may be Royals, but at the end of the day Prince George and Princess Charlotte are just children - as they demonstrated today.

As People notes, the ceremony was conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby.

Princess Charlotte wore a blue smock dress and matching bow headband.
