The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have just announced the christening date for their third child, Prince Louis.

On Wednesday, via Kensington palace, the royal duo revealed that Prince Louis’ christening date will be Monday, July 9 at The Chapel Royal, St. James’s Palace, London.

Like his older siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis will be christened by The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby. He also recently officiated Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding last month.

Three-year-old Princess Charlotte was christened at Sandringham’s St. Mary Magdalene church in Norfolk while Prince George’s christening was also held at The Chapel Royal.

Prince Louis, born April 23, is fifth in line to the throne. Various members of the Royal Family are expected to be in attendance for the royal affair, including the Queen, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Charles, as well as Kate’s siblings, James and Pippa Middleton.

Louis' christening will take place prior to the Queen and Prince Philip’s departure to Scotland for their annual summer break in August.
