Prince Louis’ Christening Date Is Actually a Nod to the Queen and Prince Philip

Tags:

On April 23, another heir to the British Royal throne was born: Prince William and Duchess Catherine’s son, Prince Louis. Since his birth, we’ve all been waiting for our next glimpse of the little prince. Where is he and when will we see him again?

On June 21, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced all the details for their third child’s christening and initiation into the Church of England. The long-anticipated news excited royals fans everywhere, as they reminisced about the beautiful christenings held for Prince Louis’ older brother and sister, Princess Charlotte and Prince George.

According to Kensington Palace, the next time we see the little prince will be on July 9, the day of his christening — and interestingly enough, another very important date for the royal family.

A Nod to Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip

July 9, the day of Prince Louis’ christening, will also mark the anniversary of the Queen and Prince Philip’s engagement in 1947. The great-grandparents of Prince Louis had been engaged for at least a year before it was publicly announced. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip met and fell in love eight years before they were engaged, when the Queen was just 13.
