George and Charlotte weren’t the only two that were on their best behavior. The man of the hour was taking a cue from his big brother and sister. According to sources, when the Royal Family greeted the Archbishop of Canterbury he was pleased to see Louis looking, “very relaxed and peaceful.” Kate allegedly smiled back and replied, “Let’s hope he stays like this,” as all mothers can relate to Kate in this instance.
The Duchess of Cambridge who is on her six-month maternity, not to return to her royal duties until October was a vision in white for her youngest christening.
Going with past tradition, the Duchess wore one of her tried and true designer’s Alexander McQueen. Kate wore similar ensembles for George and Charlotte’s christening’s marking Louis’ as the third time wearing the beloved designer. Kate nailed her look and as the saying goes if it isn’t broke don’t fix it.
