Kate Middleton and Prince William will be having a more private affair. And, members of the public will only be able to see the royals as they arrive.
Well, however it may be, but it’s going to be a big day for the parents of the baby.
Richard Fitzwilliams told The Royal UK:
“There is no doubt the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge want the christening of their third born to be private. But, there will also be the opportunity for watching the Royal Family as they arrive”.
“Prince George was christened in the Chapel where Princess Diana’s body lay before her funeral. Charlotte was christened at the church of St Mary Magdalene on the Sandringham Estate where Diana was christened”.

However, it is currently uncertain who will be the godparents of Prince Louis. Though, Prince Harry and Princess Eugenie are two possibilities. Although, Prince William and Kate Middleton typically choose friends over family in this regard.
Mr Fitzwilliams added saying:-
“There will be speculation as to whether Harry, Beatrice or Eugenie will be among Louis’s godparents. Looking at the trend, it tells us that the couple’s choices has be friends and not family”.

The expected discretion of the Royal christening marks a divergence from monarchs dating back to ‘Queen Victoria’s reign’. According to our research, the royal christenings earlier emphasise the close link between the monarchy and the church.
“And so, they used to be public affairs into Queen Victoria’s reign. At Queen Victoria’s christening which was public there was a dispute over her name which was actually Alexandrina Victoria”.
