Royal baby latest

Eight-week-old Louis, a younger brother to Prince George and Princess Charlotte, is fifth in line to the throne and a great-grandchild of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.

The announcement comes days after speculation that his Christening would happen between of June and first weeks of July.

Kensington Palace said Wednesday that Louis will be baptized in a private service at the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace in London.

But fans of Kate Middleton's husband - who has Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis together - were keen to discover how the Duke of Cambridge will celebrate his birthday.

And the christening itself is quite the family tradition, Royal Central U.K. notes, adding Prince Louis will also wear a replica of the now-famous Honiton lace christening gown.

Ahead of her wedding, Meghan was herself christened and confirmed in the Chapel Royal by the Archbishop, who also married the couple last month.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rev. Justin Welby will perform the christening. George, 4, was christened at the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace and the Duchess of Sussex herself had her own ceremony there earlier this year (a requirement before marrying into the royal family).

His big sister, Princess Charlotte was christened at St Mary Magdalene church on the Queen's estate in July 2015, two months after she was born.

Here's an understatement for you: It's been a pretty hectic year for the royal family. The Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and newlyweds Meghan and Harry are expected to attend.

Guests can expect to chow down on a slice of William and Kate's wedding cake, which was a fruit cake envisioned by Fiona Cairns.
