Prince Louis of Cambridge's christening will take place on July 9, Kensington Palace has announced.

It falls neatly between the potential quarter-final and semi-final dates for England, should the national team progress that far in the competition.

George's christening at the same venue in October 2013 was an intimate occasion, with only 23 guests attending.

Princess Charlotte is being christened in the church if St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham, Norfolk, where Princess Diana was also christened.

Prince Louis has a big day on the horizon!

It is modelled after the wedding dress Queen Victoria wore for her marriage to Prince Albert in 1840, a year before the birth of their first child.

Both Prince Louis' siblings were baptized by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Prince George in St James's Palace and Princess Charlotte at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham House. 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.

Prince Louis was last seen shortly after his birth in April when he was taken home by his parents, Kate Middleton and Prince William, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Who will christen Prince Louis?

But there are also reports that Kate might taken an extended maternity leave after feeling she returned to royal duties too soon after giving birth to George and Charlotte.
