Just as it was with his older siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, will preside over the ceremony.

By the way, Welby was also the one who officiated Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding on May 19.

The date the parents chose for the christening has a special significance to the royal family. It was the same date that Louis' great-grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, announced their engagement (July 9, 1947).
