This isn't the first time Prince George's little sister has worn the brand - Pepa & Co are same company that made the together page boy and flower girl outfits for aunty Pippa Middleton's wedding to James Mathews in 2017.

As Kate chatted to the archbishop while holding Louis, she could be heard describing her sleeping son as "very relaxed and peaceful". Looking radiant as she carried her third child, asleep in her arms while clad in his storied christening gown, the proud mom kept with her sartorial tradition as she turned up in a cream Alexander McQueen ensemble and a Jane Taylor headpiece.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended Prince Louis' royal christening.

Three-year-old Charlotte grabbed the headlines when she walked hand-in-hand with her dad past all the press that were waiting outside the chapel.

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

Kensington Palace reports that following the service, Wills and Kate hosted a lovely tea for guests back at Clarence House.

Royal fanatics, who had been camped outside the hospital wing for several days in anticipation, jumped for joy and popped open champagne as the news of his birth was announced.
