Do you think they will do a big group with all the family members, or maybe (at least release) one of just the immediate Cambridge family?


I predict 4 pictures:
1. Group shot with the extended family
2. Shot of the full Cambridge family
3. Shot of either William and Kate with Louis (or perhaps William and Kate with Louis)
4. A miscellaneous shot

Looking at the pictures from George and Charlotte’s christening, that’s basically what they did.

With George, it was 1 extended family pic, 2 Cambridge family pics, 1 pic of the Windsor family, and 1 pic of the 4 generations of monarchs. With Charlotte, it was 1 extended family pic, 1 Cambridge family pic, 1 pic of Kate and Charlotte, and 1 pic of William and George.

Yes, the young royals and their friends do a very good job staying hidden when they want lol. I am sure it helps Will and Kate that they have a country home for folks to visit. Out of the London glare.

We saw a lot of the Cambridge’s friends when they were single and partying. Now folks are married and with kids. Things have calmed down.

Well, today is the Christening. I think the service starts at 4pm. Looking forward to learning of the Godparents and coverage.

Won’t it be lovely to see the Cambridge family as a little group of 5 for the first time!

Yes! It’s so rare to see them. So it’s going to be a treat indeed.

I'm really looking forward to it, kind of surprising as I wasn't that interested in George or Charlotte. I mean, I did watch and all, but I think this one will be more fun since we'll see three cute Cambridges interacting (I personally think we see them too infrequently).

Agree! :flowers: Though it will be more fun come Christmas with Louis as an 8-month old.

Does this mean HM and the DoE aren't attending?

wbenson 07-09-2018 06:08 AM

It looks like it. They were listed as guests for Princess Charlotte's.

Buckingham Palace: Both the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are to miss Prince Louis of Cambridge's christening this afternoon.

Both the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are to miss Prince Louis of Cambridge’s christening. The decision was not made on health grounds, Buckingham Palace says, and it is understood to have been mutually agreed by the Queen and the Cambridges some time ago

What a very thoughtful gift for any child, a personal book is one of the most important things a child can receive. It opens doors to everything new in the world, new adventures, new ways of doing something........untold ideas come from books as we grow, I so love this idea of a personal library for any child.

Queen and Prince Philip will NOT attend Prince Louis's christening | Daily Mail Online

I did not expect this, I wonder about the reason behind it. The christening of a great grandchild is really special, why miss it if not for health reasons?

miss whirley 07-09-2018 06:49 AM

I'm shocked that the Queen and DoE are not attending. Didn't they attend the Christenings for their other 5 great-grandchildren?

I picked Harry Aubrey-Fletcher as a godfather so i'm pleased to see him chosen. I picked Lucy Middleton for Charlotte so I was one child off for her.

I'm quite surprised William chose Guy Pelly and Nicolas van Cutsem. While both are close friends, they are both controversial men. I guess since it's the third child and the Queen isn't attending, William thought he could be a little looser with his choices.

I don't think they were at Isla Phillips's.

PrincessofEurope 07-09-2018 06:57 AM

Mrs Robert Carter - who is this?

Daily Mail reporting it is Sophie Carter who is also Charlotte's godmother. I had always assumed she was unmarried?

wbenson 07-09-2018 06:59 AM

Mrs. Robert Carter is Hannah Gillingham.

PrincessofEurope 07-09-2018 07:03 AM

Thank you

Also noticed 6 godparents for Louis

Charlotte has 5 and George 7 - always assumed that George got more cause he is the future King and therefore Louis and Charlotte would both have 5

Whenever the Queen misses an important event, there is speculation about her health. The fact that the Palace made a point to deny that her absence was due to health concerns actually has the opposite effect of increasing the speculation.
