Charlotte Tells Photographer He's 'Not Coming' To Louis' Christening

It's pretty much the same outfit that George was wearing at his little sister Charlotte's christening in 2015.

Prince William and his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, announced the little prince's godparents at the chapel - and no, they are not Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

In a video, the Duke of Cambridge can be seen sitting alongside wife Kate Middleton-who broke her maternity leave for a surprise appearance at the event. It is the latter that she had remade in a yellow colour for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding.

Thankfully for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, their youngest son, Prince Louis, was very well behaved during his eagerly anticipated christening, and the 11-week-old stayed fast asleep as his mum carried him into the chapel.

Accompanying the duchess was Prince William, who held Princess Charlotte and Prince George by the hand.

Not being a parent yet himself, Prince Harry was initially thinking of purchasing the Lewis Carroll book Through the Looking Glass for Prince Louis. And as TIME noted, Mrs. Meade is also a cousin of Prince William's stepmother, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, though several times removed.

The wasp, which scientists named Clistopyga crassicaudata , boasts a stinger that is both longer and wider than those seen on most wasps.

Prince Harry was not named as one of Prince Louis' godparents, but Nicholas van Cutsem, a friend of both William and Harry, was named a godfather and was in attendance for the christening.

Upon hearing his daughter's sweet admonishment, Prince William let slip a slight smirk. Several took to social media to comment on the "cheeky" siblings.

Pelly, who married Elizabeth Wilson in 2014, will now have his chance, trusted with a reading of Ephesians 3: 14-19 at the christening.

The event was the first time the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge appeared publicly with all three of their children. At St James's Palace in London, nearly the entire gang (minus the Queen) was there to celebrate his big day-which he reportedly slept through completely.

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