Prince Harry has paid around $10,000 for a first edition "Winnie-the-Pooh" for nephew Louis' christening.

Prince Louis' christening will go down today inside The Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace, and now, we know who the little guy's godparents will be.

The new Duchess of Sussex opted for a fitted olive green dress by Ralph Lauren and a dramatic hat.

Unfortunately, as previously reported, Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip decided a while ago that they would not be able to attend.

The monarch, 92, will be travelling back from Norfolk on Monday at the start of a busy week.

In keeping with royal tradition, the water used for Louis' christening had been sourced from the River Jordan.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte each held on to their dad's hands as he guided them towards the chapel.

The appearance was particularly poignant as it was the time the Cambridge's appeared in public as a family of five.

BBC reports that Middleton was overheard saying Louis was "very relaxed and peaceful", and joked to the archbishop that she hopes "he stays like this".

Asked about the possibility of a vote of no confidence on Mrs May, he said: "I would firmly believe that she would win that". Mrs May said she was "sorry - and a little surprised" by Mr Johnson's move after his apparent support on Friday.

The godparents included Hannah Carter, a school friend of the Duchess, and Lady Laura Meade, who is married to Prince William's friend and Princess Charlotte's godfather, James.

Miss Middleton and Mr Pelly each read a lesson during the service, Kensington Palace said.

Since then, the christening gown has become a cultural marker in the regal history books as it has been worn by 62 royals in total including Princes Harry and William.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a V-neck cream dress by Alexander McQueen and a floral embellished headpiece by Jane Taylor.

But three-year-old Charlotte was caught in a sassy moment as she told off photographers as Kate Middleton, Prince William, Prince George and Prince Louis left the chapel.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose hymns O Jesus, I Have Promised and Lord of All Hopefulness for the ceremony.

After Meghan Markle confirmed her father Thomas won't attend the wedding, Prince Charles offered to walk the bride down the aisle.

Little baby Louis wore a handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, the palace said, which was made by the queen's longtime dressmaker, Angela Kelly.

Guests were served slices of christening cake, which is a tier taken from The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding cake. His brother, William van Cutsem, is Prince George's godfather.
