This is just too sweet!

Since his birth, we've all been waiting for our next glimpse of Prince Louis. Where is he and when will we see him again?

On April 23, two months ago, another heir to the British Royal throne was born: Prince William and Duchess Catherine's son, Prince Louis.

Today, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have announced all the details for their third child's christening and initiation into the Church of England.

The next time we see the little Prince will be on July 9, the day of his christening and another very important date for the Royal family.

A nod to Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip

July the 9th, 2018- the day of Prince Louis' christening, will also mark the anniversary of the Queen and Prince Philip's engagement in 1947, exactly 71 years earlier.

The great-grandparents of Prince Louis had been been engaged for at least a year before it was publicly announced.

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip met and fell in love eight years before they were engaged, when the Queen was just 13.
