Royal family: Queen and Prince Philip to miss Prince Louis' christening

Louis's siblings, Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 3, also watched the ceremony at the Chapel Royal in St. James's Palace.

Heir to the throne Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, his son Prince William and wife Kate, and Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, all joined the queen on the palace balcony for the display.

The Queen, 92, has a busy week ahead, with high-profile celebrations in central London marking the centenary of the RAF on Tuesday, and a visit by US President Donald Trump in Windsor on Friday.

More than 2,200 people packed out Westminster Abbey for the service, with dignitaries including Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson and the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby attending.

As she exited the church following Louis's christening, holding hands with her dad Prince William, she cast a somewhat concerned glance at the group of photographers watching them.

And the week won't be slowing down for Harry and Meghan.

Andy Murray Pulled Out of Wimbledon
This will be the first time since 2007 that Murray has not played at the world-famous tennis tournament. Instead, Murray's spot in the draw will be taken by Jason Jung of Taiwan, who lost in qualifying.

Afterward, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hosted a tea party at Clarence House and served a portion of their wedding cake that they had saved since 2011. "It's also somebody who is there other than a parent or family member that a child could turn to", royal expert Victoria Aribter explained to Hello magazine in 2015. The coat dress was actually a very pale yellow at her brother-in-law's nuptials, not cream, and the sleeves on the wedding look had buttons.

Proud grandfather the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall did attend, along with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex who walked hand-in-hand.

Prince Louis' third godmother is Lucy Middleton, Kate's cousin on her father's side of the family.

The gesture comes nearly two months after the princess gave a little wave to the world on the steps of St George's Chapel at the royal wedding in May. She is the wife of James Meade, who is one of Princess Charlotte's godfathers.

Prince Harry has paid around $10,000 for a first edition "Winnie-the-Pooh" for nephew Louis' christening.

The 11-week-old Prince wore the Honiton lace and white christening robe that was also worn by Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
