Meghan Markle's Secret Baptism and Prince Louis' Christening Share a Special Connection

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced the news via Kensington Palace Wednesday morning, confirming the service would take place at The Chapel Royal at St James's Palace, London.

George was also christened in the Chapel Royal, but Charlotte was baptised at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham.

Louis, the Queen's great-grandson, is fifth in line to the throne.

Princess Charlotte was two-months-old.

"The Duke and Duchess would like to thank members of the public for their kind messages following the birth of Prince Louis, and for Princess Charlotte's third birthday". The Chapel Royal has a special tie to Prince William and his family, as it's where his late mother's coffin was held for a week before her funeral, and where Kate Middleton received communion just prior to her own royal wedding. Her husband Nick Pettman, who works in the City, will also be at the christening, as will the spouses of all the godparents.

One dead, five wounded in Malmo shooting
One person was killed and five wounded in a shooting in the centre of the southern Swedish city of Malmö on Monday, police said . Swedish police say several people were injured when shots were fired Monday in Malmo, Sweden's third-largest city.

The good news for his football-loving dad, Prince William, is that 9 July is one of the rest days in the World Cup.

Prince Louis's chosen church already marks a stark difference from his sister Princess Charlotte's christening, though.

If his siblings' ceremonies are anything to go by, Prince Louis' christening will be a private affair.

The baby prince, who will be 11 weeks old at the time of the christening, will be welcomed into the Christian faith dressed in the same frilly, cream gown used for George and Charlotte.

Christenings are a must for royal babies.

The tradition of wearing the gown started in 1841 when the original gown was made for Queen Victoria's first child Princess Victoria's baptism.
