Beaming Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry have arrived for the christening of Prince Louis.
The couple looked relaxed as they held hands and walked behind Kate as she carried a sleeping little Louis, fifth in line to the throne, inside St James’s Palace.
Meghan has opted for an olive green ensemble – a stark contrast from the nude and monochrome outfits she has been wearing in recent weeks for royal engagements.
The outfit is a design by Ralph Lauren, which she accompanied with matching shoes and clutch bag, as well as a hat by milliner Stephen Jones.
Prince Harry managed to come up with an incredibly sweet present for his new nephew Louis – but it came with a staggering £8,000 price tag.
He bought his second nephew a first edition of AA Milne’s Winnie-The-Pooh to mark the special day.
Despite the jaw-dropping price, there’s actually an extremely special story behind the expensive gift, and it’s a touching tribute to William and Harry’s late mum Diana.
The Queen and Prince Philip are not among the guests, with a royal source saying it had been agreed some time ago that Her Majesty and was not due to any health issues.
But William’s father Prince Charles and his wife Camilla are present along with younger brother Prince Harry and his wife Meghan.
Also attending are Kate’s parents, her brother and sister and Louis’s six godparents, who are close friends or relatives of William and Kate.
Meanwhile, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen two hymns, two lessons and two anthems for the christening of their son, Prince Louis.
The Hymns are O Jesus, I Have Promised and Lord of All Hopefulness.
The lessons are from St. Mark 10: 13-16, read by godmother Lucy Middleton and Ephesians 3: 14-19, read by godfather Guy Pelly.
The anthems are This is the day which the Lord hath made (John Rutter) and Suo Gân, a traditional Welsh Lullaby (Gareth Wilson).
This is the day which the Lord hath made was composed for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Wedding on 29th April, 2011.
The anthems will be performed by The Choir of Her Majesty’s Chapel Royal.
