As such, female members of the British royal family usually sit in a pose nicknamed "the duchess slant", where one sits with her legs parallel and slants them to one side. So you can only imagine my glee at seeing all the pics from the christening of Prince Louis of Cambridge.
Wee Louis was baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, using the Lily Font and water from the River Jordan.
According to tradition, water from the River Jordan is set to be used for Louis's christening.
His Royal Highness Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge may be only 2 months old, but it looks as though he's already living like a royal a.k.a. receiving gifts that cost thousands of dollars.
He was wearing the Royal Christening Robe, which is made of fine Honiton lace lined with satin, and was created for the christening of Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Victoria, back in 1841.
Prince Harry and his wife the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, had earlier spoken to a reporter in Britain about their plans for children after they had just gotten engaged. "Please join me in praying for him and his family on this special day".
Prince Louis is fifth in line to the throne.
"The Duchess & I had a chat about the recent referendum result - she watched with interest & was pleased to see the result". "His big sister, Lady Louise Windsor, had been the last royal to wear the original gown", the site notes. Meghan had roast hake for her main course served with mussel veloute, saffron potato, roast cauliflower and leek, while Harry had a sirloin of Irish lamb. She also wore her hair in a low chignon, topped with a white, flowered headpiece. And while the 11-week-old was obviously the center of attention, his older siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, made quite the impression as well.
