Prince Louis, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s third child, was christened on Monday at the Chapel Royal at St James’ Palace.
The christening was witnessed by senior royals, including Prince Charles and Camilla and Meghan Markle and her husband, Prince Harry.
Little Prince Louis was christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby at 4pm on Monday in a private ceremony followed by tea at Clarence House also based at St James’.
But royal onlookers spotted a striking resemblance between the Duke of Cambridge and his first born son, Prince George, who matched each other at the ceremonies of their little brothers.
His son, Prince George, third-in-line to the throne, wore an identical ensemble on Monday as his little brother was christened.
He wore navy blue shorts, a white buttoned up shirt with blue piping on the collar and sleeves and soft black slip on shoes.
In an almost identical ensemble over third years ago, a beaming Prince William was seen enjoying the spotlight as he wore a similar blue-piped shirt, blue shorts and soft black shoes.
Prince George has been photographed in many of his father’s biggest moments.
Photos from roughly 30 years earlier show his dad in the same poses.
Prince George and Prince William looked the spitting image of each otherr on their first day of school, with George mirroring his father in an almost uncanny resemblance in September 2017.
Both Princes were clad in a uniform consisting of navy shorts with a blue-and-red sweater over a light blue dress shirt. William wore a similar outfit on his first day at Wetherby Preparatory School in Notting Hill in 1987.
Prince George also resembled his father William during the Queen’s Trooping the Colour ceremony – the official parade that marks her birthday.
Prince Charles held a baby William in his arm on the balcony of Buckingham Palace in 1984, while decades later, Prince William and George struck an almost identical pose during the Queen’s special day in June 2015.
The timeless blue romper sported by both princes features off-white frill at the neckline and sleeves plus jaunty gold buttons.
Prince Louis was christened according to the law of the Church of England at the Chapel Royal this afternoon.
Kate arrived with the baby prince who wore a handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, made by the Queen’s dressmaker, Angela Kelly.
The original robe was made in 1841 for the christening of Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter, But the replica was made after Queen Elizabeth deemed the original robe was too fragile.
Prince Louis’ older sister Princess Charlotte wore the same dress for her christening in 2015, as did Louis’ brother Prince George in 2013.
