  • Prince Louis to be christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury next month

Prince George was christened in the Chapel Royal while Princess Charlotte was baptised at Sandringham in Norfolk.

And the christening itself is quite the family tradition, Royal Central U.K. notes, adding Prince Louis will also wear a replica of the now-famous Honiton lace christening gown.

Prince William and Kate Middleton add the young prince will be christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.

The announcement comes days after speculation that his Christening would happen between of June and first weeks of July.

It will take place at The Chapel Royal, St James's Palace, London - the same place Prince George was also christened.

Princess Charlotte's (pictured) Christening took place at St. Mary Magdalene Church, Sandringham.

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, pose for photographers with their newborn baby boy Prince Louis of Cambridge outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital on April 23, 2018 in London, England.

The news comes two months after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed their third child.

Kensington Palace confirmed: "Prince Louis will be christened by The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby". Though royal christening services are private events, the family typically appears before the cameras on the way into and out of the chapel. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will share photos but will keep the occasion as private as possible.

Eight-week-old Louis, a younger brother to Prince George and Princess Charlotte, is fifth in line to the throne and a great-grandchild of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.
