  • Prince Louis christening

The christening of Prince Louis of Cambridge is now ongoing today, July 9, at The Chapel Royal, St James's Palace.

Today she will watch an RAF flypast with Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince William, Prince Harry and Meghan.

Queen Elizabeth, 92, has also begun to scale back her duties because of her advancing age, handing over some of her responsibilities to her heir, Prince Charles.

The monarch was due to return to London on Monday before a busy schedule of events including a meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday at her Windsor Castle home.

The christening took place at The Chapel Royal in St. James's Palace, reported CNN.

Prince Louis was christened in an intimate ceremony attended by close friends and family as well as his six godparents. Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, Laura Meade, Robert Carter and Lucy Middleton were named godparents for Louis.

Proud parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made their way into the service in London with their three children.

Prince William and the former Kate Middleton later hosted a tea at Clarence House, where they served a christening cake made from a tier of their wedding cake, the palace said.

It was a family affair for the Middletons, who all stepped out on Monday afternoon to celebrate Prince Louis' christening.

It's days like today that make being a mom so special for Kate Middleton.

The chapel is where Queen Victoria married Prince Albert in 1840.

His elder brother George was also christened in the Chapel Royal, but sister Charlotte was baptised at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham.

Tomorrow, Meghan and Harry join the Royal Family for a service commemorating the centenary of the Royal Air Force before jetting off on a two-day visit to Ireland. The first to wear the replica was the youngest of the Queen's eight grandchildren, James Viscount Severn, in 2008.
