According to an official statement, the christening will take place in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace - the same place where Louis' big brother Prince George was baptised.

When will the godparents be announced?

Prince Louis will be 10 weeks old at his christening.

"Judging by the previous christenings, and the importance of the day for the family, Louis' christening will be a private affair, perhaps no surprise there".

The news was confirmed on Wednesday by Kensington Palace on Twitter, adding the christening will take place at The Chapel Royal in St James's Palace in London. Traditionally, royal baptisms have been a time for lovely family photos, which means brothers George and Louis will be pictured alongside each other for the first time ever.

Both George and Charlotte were both also baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
