Queen Elizabeth Misses her Newest Grandchild’s Christening

Share

Prince William and Kate Middleton kept up a family tradition for Prince Louis' christening party that might turn some stomachs.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip also arrived in style after skipping Monday's christening, a decision explained by one source as a way to conserve energy for the packed week ahead.

Princess Diana's favourite flower was the white rose, and the Duchess often likes to pay subtle tribute to Prince William and Harry's late mother through her fashion choices.

The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby welcomed the royals at the entrance to the chapel.

The original gown has been worn for all Royal christenings since, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren. The "Quantico" actress wore a pastel shade of purple with a matching hat by Philip Treacy, while Spencer opted for a navy blue, collared dress with polka dots and a matching hat.

Catherine's parents, Michael and Carole Middleton were also in attendance, as was her brother James, and pregnant sister Pippa and her husband James Matthews.

Little Louis wore a frilly cream royal christening gown which was an immaculate replica of the intricate gown originally made for Queen Victoria's oldest daughter in 1841.

Although the adults and the air performance were unbelievable, it was Princess Charlotte and Prince George who truly stole the show.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle gave major relationship goals at their fairytale wedding.

Prince Louis, who was born on April 23rd 2018, is the youngest sibling to his brother, Prince George and sister, Prince Charlotte. And as TIME noted, Mrs. Meade is also a cousin of Prince William's stepmother, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, though several times removed.

James and Prince William have been close ever since they attended Eton College together - William was even an usher at his wedding to Laura - and Laura's family is close with the Middletons.

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