Prince William and Middleton will reportedly make a compromise for their son's christening.

He added: "Charlotte was christened at the Church of St Mary Magdalene where Diana was christened there is an enduring link with the mother William so adored and who is his and Harry's inspiration".

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcome their third child at the Lindo Wing, St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, London, UK.

Her father, Lord Fellowes, was the Queen's Private Secretary and his father was the Queen's land agent at Sandringham. Welby also married Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at the royal wedding May 19 and baptised both of Louis's siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The date coincidently falls a week after Prince George finishes his school year and Princess Charlotte breaks for the summer.

Here's everything you need to know about Prince Louis' big day.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, will conduct the christening.at the Chapel Royal, St James's Palace, London.

Prince George's christening took place in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace in October 2013, five months after he was born.

Sister Princess Charlotte was also christened about two months after Kate gave birth to her.

It's not yet known who Prince Louis' godparents will be, but punters seem to believe soon-to-be former private secretary Miguel Head and his childhood nanny Tiggy Legge-Bourke are favourites in the running.

The tradition of wearing the gown started in 1841 when the original gown was made for Queen Victoria's first child Princess Victoria's baptism.
