There is some happiness amid all the sad news this week. Kensington Palace has announced the date on which Prince Louis, the 3rd child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, will be baptized.
“Prince Louis, the third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, is to be baptised on 9 July, Kensington Palace has announced.
“The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, will conduct the christening at the Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace, London.
“Louis Arthur Charles – to give him his full name – was born on 23 April.
“The good news for his football-loving dad, Prince William, is that 9 July is one of the rest days in the World Cup.”
The BBC also reports that godparents are yet to be announced. Other details of note: Prince Louis will be wearing the same replica antique gown as his brother and sister wore for their baptisms, and guests will be served a slice of William and Kate’s wedding cake.
