The family event is sure to make for some memorable moments, especially with his older siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who regularly steal the show with their cuteness. The bride was Princess Diana's niece, so she's Prince Harry and Prince William's cousin.

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

That's because the two have prior engagements: William on another royal duty, and Kate caring for little Prince Louis.

Kensington Palace has announced Prince Louis - the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's newborn son - will be christened on Monday July 9.

Sky Sports have ranked all 20 clubs in terms of who has the most hard set of fixtures to open the 2018/19 season. Liverpool will play away from home in the Premier League before every Champions League group game this season.

Princess Charlotte was christened on 5 July 2015 at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham. The Chapel Royal has a special tie to Prince William and his family, as it's where his late mother's coffin was held for a week before her funeral, and where Kate Middleton received communion just prior to her own royal wedding.

Prince Louis's godparents will be expected to be announced on the morning of the christening, with William and Kate again likely to choose mostly close friends for the role.

As for Kate Middleton, she's on maternity leave after giving birth to Prince Louis on April 23. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will share photos but will keep the occasion as private as possible. The news comes two months after the royal couple welcomed their third child into the world.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's youngest child, born on April 23, will be baptised in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace in London.
