On July 9, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge gathered alongside family and friends in the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace for the christening of their son Prince Louis. Duchess Kate looked perfectly appropriate for the religious ceremony, wearing a white dress by Alexander McQueen with a hat by Jane Taylor.

Kensington Palace shared a video of Kate's arrival with the rest of her family on Twitter, giving us the first glimpse of Kate's Alexander McQueen dress.

Kate's outfit was quite similar to the cream-colored coat-dresses she wore to both Prince George and Princess Charlotte's christenings. Here is the Duchess in 2013 at Prince George's ceremony. The color of her ensemble matched the christening dress almost exactly:


And here she is again at Princess Charlotte's christening in 2015, wearing a cream Alexander McQueen coat-dress. She wore almost an exact replica of this look to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding earlier this year:

The Duke and Duchess were joined by Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and the Middleton family at Louis's christening. Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were notably absent at the event.

Earlier today, Kensington Palace announced Prince Louis's six godparents, who are all close friends or a cousin of Will and Kate: Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, Lady Laura Meade, Mrs. Robert Carter (a.k.a. Hannah Gillingham), and Lucy Middleton.
