Photos From Prince Louis' Christening Have Been Released And They Are As Precious As You'd Expect

Today was an exciting day for the royal family, as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge got to celebrate the christening of their youngest son, Prince Louis.

Earlier this morning, Kensington Palace released the names of the six godparents who would all be joining the royals at St. James Palace, but now we've seen photos from the event and everyone looks amazing.

As predicted, Louis arrived wearing the same christening gown that both his brother and sister wore, but actually dates back all the way to 1841 when Queen Victoria had it made for her daughter.

Kate carried the sleeping Louis into the event with a big grin on her face, clearly happy to be showing off her beautiful son. She wore a white dress and a floral headpiece, that held her hair in her usual low bun.

William walked in with his other two children holding his hands. Prince George was wearing shorts and a button up like he so often is, and Princess Charlotte had on a blue dress that matched her father's suit.

Kensington Palace released the footage of the royals as they arrived, greeting everyone as they entered the church. Personally, I think the part when Charlotte reaches out to shake someone's hand is my favorite. She's so polite.

Newlyweds Harry and Meghan followed behind the happy parents, with Meghan wearing a simple olive colored dress that complemented Harry's blue tie.

Prince Charles and Camilla arrived with William and Kate.

Kate's whole family was there as well, with everyone seeming to follow with the blue and green dress code.

The godparents arrived, all looking excited to be a part of this special boy's life.

This is only the second time we've seen young Prince Louis since he was born. Just seven hours after he was born on April 23rd, Kate was up and out on the streets, smiling with her little bundle of joy.

As previously announced, the Queen and Prince Phillip were not in attendance, but Kensington Palace said that it was planned in advanced and not because of any health reasons.

Congratulations to the royal family, glad to see you are all so happy!
