Just like his brother and sister, Prince Louis will be christened not long after being born.

The godparents will be announced the morning of the christening, according to BBC News.

The news comes two months after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed their third child.

The youngest of the Cambridge family will be christened on Monday 9 July this year.

Prince George is yet to be seen together with both his younger siblings, with the youngest Prince missing recent events including his uncle Prince Harry's wedding and the Queen's Birthday Parade, Trooping the Colour. The date fits in perfectly with Prince Harry and Meghan's busy schedule as it falls one day before their official two-day visit to Dublin.

The Chapel Royal is the same venue used for Prince George's christening on 23 October 2013.

Following in the tradition of all the other royal children - including his older brother Prince George and Princess Charlotte - Prince Louis will be welcomed into the Church of England at the ceremony, presided over by the Archbishop of Canterbury at the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace in London.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are likely to select close friends or family members as their choices.

"We'll no doubt have the official christening photos, as we did with Prince George and Princess Charlotte", he continued.

"Judging by the previous christenings, and the importance of the day for the family, Louis' christening will be a private affair, perhaps no surprise there".
