Princess Charlotte made a cheeky joke at her little brother's christening

Royal family: Queen and Prince Philip to miss Prince Louis' christening

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, went the Kate Middleton way of things and wore a single colour head to toe.

Middleton, who is now five-months pregnant with her first child with husband James Matthews, hid her baby bump under the long-sleeved pleated gown.

However, the 92-year-old Queen and her husband Prince Philip were not among the guests.

Kate is now in the middle of maternity leave for Prince Louis and hasn't yet returned to full-time royal duties.

This afternoon, thousands of people lined the palace approach in central London, to watch a ceremony hosted by the Queen and culminating in the historic flypast of bombers, old and new, along with spy planes, helicopters and transporters.

Prince Louis, who snoozed peacefully through proceedings, appeared to know he was in safe hands.

The happy couple were also joined by Wills and Kate who strode in alongside them.

Most recently, at the christening for his baby brother, Prince Louis, George donned a mini replica of the outfit that William wore to his baby brother's same celebration around three decades earlier.

Prior to the event, Kensington Palace released the names of Louis' godparents: Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher and the Lady Laura Meade, as well as Mrs. Robert Carter (or Hannah Gillingham, Middleton's college friend) and Lucy Middleton (the duchess' cousin). Prince William wore a sharp blue suit and was hand-in-hand with George and Charlotte who wore a white short set and blue and white printed dress respectively.

He was once mistakenly tipped to be a godfather to Prince George in 2013, saying then: "I love babies and I have calmed down quite a bit socially now".

The christening took place at The Chapel Royal in St. James's Palace.

The Royal Christening Robe was made in 1841 for the christening of Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Victoria, Princess Royal.

The confident youngster was captured telling photographers "You're not coming" as she left service at the Chapel Royal yesterday with her parents, heading to a private tea at Clarence House.
