Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s third child, Prince Louis, was christened in front of friends and family on Monday – but Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip weren’t two of them.
The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh had decided not to attend their great-grandson’s christening. A decision that Buckingham Palace says was made some time ago and agreed to by Prince William and Kate.
The 92-year-old monarch has a busy week ahead, marked by a visit from US President Donald Trump in Windsor on Friday.
The Duke of Edinburgh, 97, has retired from public duties and has been enjoying his free time away from London.
But Prince Louis was not without love and attention on his big day.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte were there to see their 11-week-old baby brother's christening at Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace, as were Prince Charles and his wife Camilla and Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
Not to mention Louis' six godparents.
