Kate Middleton and Prince William's third child will be christened next month, Kensington Palace announced in a statement.

Next month, Prince Louis will be christened at St. James' Palace in an official ceremony.

William and Kate shared the first photos of Prince Louis in May, along with sweet images of him with big sister Princess Charlotte.

James's Palace was the site of Prince George's baptism in 2013, but Princess Charlotte had her christening at Sandringham's St. Mary Magdalene church in Norfolk, England.

Now eight weeks old, he was born in London on 23 April, weighing 8lb 7oz. It's the same place where his older brother George was baptized. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Reverend Justin Welby, will christen the young prince.

Christenings are a must for royal babies.

The palace said the ceremony will be a private affair, lasting about half an hour.

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

Charlotte's baptism in 2015 involved the Cambridge family walking to church past well-wishers.

It remains unknown who will be selected to be Louis' godparents.

Newlyweds the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are likely to attend the family celebration. If that name sounds extra familiar, it's because he also officiated Prince Harry and Megan Markle's wedding on May 19.
