Prince Harry gifts Prince Louis $10K 'Winnie-the-Pooh' book

Britain's Prince Louis of Cambridge, the baby son of Prince William and his wife Kate, is to be christened on Monday but Queen Elizabeth II will not be in attendance, Kensington Palace said.

The three-year-old was walking hand-in-hand with her dad, Prince William, after her younger brother's christening service when she told waiting photographers: "You're not coming", according to The Sun. But the two were not at the ceremony.

The 92-year-old monarch has a busy week ahead, marked by a visit from US President Donald Trump in Windsor on Friday.

Kate Middleton has officially returned to her royal duties one day after Prince Louis' christening, alongside sister-in-law Meghan Markle, who is now the Duchess of Sussex.

Kate's younger sister, Pippa Middleton, is pregnant with her first child with her husband, James Matthews.

His elder brother George was also christened at the Chapel Royal, but sister Charlotte's christening was at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham. It was the first look at the Cambridge family of five in public since the baby's birth. Kate wore a white McQueen outfit with a headdress by Jane Taylor.

The duchess dazzled in a cream Alexander McQueen creation at Princess Charlotte's christening in 2015.

Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan arrive in Ireland for 1st official foreign trip
After arriving at Dublin City Airport, Harry and Meghan were due to meet with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar. Other royal family members present today include the Queen , Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.

After all, when Kate grew up, she wasn't a member of the British Royal Family like Charlotte, which likely accounts for the differences in hairstyle and poise.

The six godparents and their spouses were also due to attend.

Then she was caught excitedly skipping at a polo event with her mum, Kate Middleton. Prince Louis godparents are Lady Laura Meade, Hannah Carter, Lucy Middleton, Nicholas van Cutsem, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher and Guy Pelley.

She may be only 3 years old, but Princess Charlotte showed off her confident nature with a cheeky remark as she left her brother Prince Louis' christening. Afterward, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hosted a tea party at Clarence House and served a portion of their wedding cake that they had saved since 2011.

Charlotte "erupted into a mini-tantrum", before taking a tumble on the tarmac, says the Daily Mail.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev. Justin Welby, is presiding over Louis's christening, just as he did for George and Charlotte's christenings.

"I'm delighted and privileged to be christening Prince Louis today - a precious child made in God's image, just as we all are".
