“The Royals” always doing it in style and class.
Today is the day when the fifth in line to the throne. The third child of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Prince Louis gets christened. The 11-week-old prince will be baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury, in the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace. What a gift he will be getting from Prince Harry on this special day.
As the christening ceremony of the royals is a private ceremony which is why just close family and friends are invited. However the list of the guest still not prepared completely. In any case Prince George (four-year-old) and Princess Charlotte (three-year-old). Will surely be there for their younger brother’s big day.
It was this important occasion that (uncle) Prince Harry decided to do something special for his nephew. He bought Prince Louis an £8,000 Winnie The Pooh, 1926 first edition version of the A.A. Milne Book. The version which was printed 30,000 in the first run THE SUN reports.
This book for Prince Louis has been purchased from Peter Harrington, a rare book seller in Kensington, London.
A friend told the newspaper: ‘One of Harry’s happiest childhood memories was being read a bedtime story by his mother. She loved all the classics and Harry had the brilliant idea of starting a little library of first editions.’
Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass, worth £24,000 was thought to be the first option. However the Dukes and Duchess of Sussex decided “Winnie The Pooh” to be more suitable.
As stated earlier that the royal christening are usually a small affair. Which is why Kensington Palace is yet to release the guest list. However it is said that the newly wed Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be making an appearance. So is Princess Kate Middleton pregnant sister Pippa Matthews and her brother James Middleton.
Prince Louis Arthur Charles born on April 23-St George’s Day. In the private Lindo wing of the St Mary’s hospital in Paddington, London. Would be wearing the same frilly, cream gown used for Prince George and Princess Charlotte when he will be welcomed to the christen faith today.
Princess Charlotte was baptised at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham. Whereas, Prince George in the Chapel Royal.
