United Kingdom queen misses christening of William and Kate's baby son

Thankfully for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, their youngest son, Prince Louis, was very well behaved during his eagerly anticipated christening, and the 11-week-old stayed fast asleep as his mum carried him into the chapel. And better yet, the entire royal family was present, dressed in their church-best.

A royal source said it had been agreed some time ago that the 92-year-old queen would not attend the small, family affair and her absence was not due to any health issues.

After retiring from public life last September, Prince Philip, 97, has appeared on only a handful of occasions. Later this week, she will host President Donald Trump for a meeting at Windsor Castle. George, however was christened at St. James's Palace's Chapel Royal, just like Louis.

But just because the Duke and Duchess of Sussex won't be Prince Louis' godparents, doesn't mean they won't play an important role in the infant's life, as they will always be his aunt and uncle.

His christening was attended by senior-ranking rankings including Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Hours ahead of Prince Louis' christening on July 9, Kensington Palace revealed the names of the baby boy's godparents.

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

Kate has been on maternity leave since the birth of Prince Louis, who was born on April 22, 2018.

The robe, which was handmade by Angela Kelly, the Queen's personal dressmaker, is a replica of the original christening gown designed for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter.

The Choir of Her Majesty's Chapel Royal performed This is the day which the Lord hath made, which was composed for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding in 2011, and Suo Gan, a traditional Welsh lullaby. They also served part of the cake at Prince George and Princess Charlotte's christenings.

It was made up of 17 individual fruit cakes and had eight tiers, decorated with around 900 flowers and leaves using cream and white icing.
