Louis's grandfather the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will be present, along with Louis's maternal grandparents Carole and Michael Middleton.

George, four, and three-year-old Charlotte held William's hand, as a sleeping Louis was carried into the chapel by Kate.

‘Drunk’ seagulls have been confusing the RSPCA in Somerset
Some have been so poorly they've died. "Possibly from being exposed to high temperatures after falling unconscious". Reportedly, some have died while others are ill and the rest are recovering the deadly hangover.

One royal that will be noticeably absent from the festivities is Prince Charles' brother Prince Andrew, who, according to Express, will not attend as he is scheduled to visit the University of Huddersfield.

Princess Charlotte, however, was christened at the Church of St Mary Magdalene at Sandringham in Norfolk. They include more good friends of the couple (Wills and KMid have consistently turned to their social circle, rather than their family, when choosing godparents for their children) - Sophie Carter, James Reade, and Thomas van Straubenzee.

Guy Pelly is a British nightclub owner and entrepreneur who has been friends with Will and Harry for years.

After the ceremony, the guests will descend on a private tea afternoon at Clarence House and indulge in some desserts - including a tier from Kate and William's 2011 wedding cake. Water from the River Jordan will be used during the baptism.

The gown, remade in 2008 by Queen Elizabeth's dresser, Angela Kelly, is an exact replica of the gown first commissioned by Queen Victoria 174 years ago.
