It's the same spot that Prince George had his big day - although Princess Charlotte's was at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham.

He'll be nearly 12-weeks-old, the same age as his big brother Prince George was when he was christened.

Prince George was christened in the Chapel Royal while Princess Charlotte was baptised at Sandringham in Norfolk.

That's because the two have prior engagements: William on another royal duty, and Kate caring for little Prince Louis.

Haley also decried the membership of countries like China, Cuba and Venezuela that are themselves accused of rights violations. He added: "Given the state of human rights in today's world, the U.S. should be stepping up, not stepping back".

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

Prince Louis' christening details have been revealed!

Born on April 23, His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge is fifth in line to the throne, and the sixth great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth.

The tradition of wearing the gown started in 1841 when the original gown was made for Queen Victoria's first child Princess Victoria's baptism.

For much of 2017, Porter was projected to be one of the top two picks in the 2018 National Basketball Association draft. Porter underwent back surgery in his first and only collegiate season, but has said "There's no risk to reinjure it".

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

While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were present in the celebration, Prince William and Kate Middleton didn't attend the event.

It will be the third time we get to see the two-month-old after mum Kate emerged with him from the Lindo Wing on April 23, just hours after giving birth.

Prince Louis's godparents will be expected to be announced on the morning of the christening, with William and Kate again likely to choose mostly close friends for the role.
