Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Kate wore similar ensembles for George and Charlotte's christening's marking Louis' as the third time wearing the beloved designer.

Harry's brother, William, The Duke of Cambridge, and his wife, Kate, The Duchess of Cambridge, were stood slightly in front of Harry and Meghan, along with The Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Princess Royal and other family members.

He is also one of Queen Elizabeth II's seven great-grandchildren.

Case in point, the pale mint blue dress she donned on Tuesday for the Royal Air Force 100 ceremony in London.

The Duke of Sussex is understood to have bought the 1926 A.A. Milne book - of which 30,000 were printed in the first run - from Peter Harrington in London.

This, her first military post as a member of the Royal Family, was given to her in December 2015 upon Prince Philip relinquishing the position and passing it over to her.

#WC2018: England lead Croatia 1-0 at half-time in semi-final

"I'm delighted and privileged to be christening Prince Louis today - a precious child made in God's image, just as we all are", Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said on Twitter.

Prince Harry was not named as one of Prince Louis' godparents, but Nicholas van Cutsem, a friend of both William and Harry, was named a godfather and was in attendance for the christening. Carter is a college friend of Kate's, and she and her husband Robert live in the county of Norfolk near Anmer Hall, William and Kate's country home.

Princess Diana's favourite flower was the white rose - leading many to think Kate was making a subtle nod to her.

Most recently, the mom of three sported a hairnet over a simple low bun to Prince Louis' christening at St. James' Palace on Monday.

Kensington Palace reports that following the service, Wills and Kate hosted a lovely tea for guests back at Clarence House.

Kate Middleton was confirmed there before she Wednesday Prince William in 2011, and following her death, Princess Diana's coffin laid in the church a week before her funeral.
