The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh will not be on hand for the event.

The 92-year-old monarch has a busy week ahead, marked by a visit from US President Donald Trump in Windsor on Friday.

The princess's friend Julia Samuel was made George's godmother, while Diana's niece Laura Fellowes is one of Charlotte's.

Speaking to the BBC on 6 July, the Archbishop of Canterbury, who will conduct the christening revealed, "You know, if you're at the wedding don't drop the rings and if you're at the baptism don't drop the baby".

Prince William wore a sharp blue suit and was hand-in-hand with George and Charlotte who wore a white short set and blue and white printed dress respectively.

The Choir of Her Majesty's Chapel Royal performed This is the day which the Lord hath made, which was composed for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding in 2011, and Suo Gan, a traditional Welsh lullaby.

This afternoon, thousands of people lined the palace approach in central London, to watch a ceremony hosted by the Queen and culminating in the historic flypast of bombers, old and new, along with spy planes, helicopters and transporters.

Prince Harry spared no expense after finding the flawless gift to mark nephew Prince Louis' royal christening on July 9, a new report reveals.

Middleton has definitely found her signature piece, proving one can wear a tried-and-true staple over and over again.

Hurricane Chris forms; not expected to make US landfall
Tropical Storm Chris is now tracking the East Coast of the United States and is set to cross the Atlantic to the UK. Friday and Saturday our July thunderstorms return mainly late in the afternoon with highs in the lower 90s.

The young pair were joined today by Spanish nanny Maria Borallo as they watched the display.

It's not uncommon to see Middleton in this silhouette, even with slight variation (take a brief scroll through her most memorable outfits and that becomes clear), but this level of sameness is odd even for her. Neckline?

Middleton, who is now five-months pregnant with her first child with husband James Matthews, hid her baby bump under the long-sleeved pleated gown.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose hymns O Jesus, I Have Promised and Lord of All Hopefulness for the ceremony. And as TIME noted, Mrs. Meade is also a cousin of Prince William's stepmother, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, though several times removed.

Royal babies are baptised in the same intricate cream lace christening gown. As after George and Charlotte's baptisms, guests will be served slices of the duke and duchess's wedding cake. He is fifth in line to the throne.

In addition to the royal family, members of Kate's family - her parents, Michael and Carole, brother, James, and sister, Pippa - are also attending the christening.

Another well-known name to appear on the list of godparents includes Guy Pelly, who is the owner of the London nightclub Tonteria. The V-neckline and structured shoulders never fail to look elegant and timeless on the mom of three. She is the daughter of the 8th Earl of Romney.

Carter is an old friend of Kate's and attended Marlborough College alongside her, according to Time. It's an interesting choice for the mother-to-be, who in the recent weeks has flaunted her growing bump in chic maternity wear.

Mr. Harry Aubrey-Fletcher attended both Ludgrove prep school and Eton with William.
