While many famous royal faces will gather for Prince Louis' christening today, Queen Elizabeth II won't be one of them.

Kate, dressed in an ivory dress and matching hat, and William were joined by William's father Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, along with younger brother Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.

The Duchess of Cambridge took the gorgeous look out of storage in the summer of 2016 for one of the Queen's famous garden parties at Buckingham Palace, though this time she wore a nude pump.

The 6 godparents, who also attended with their spouses, are all friends or family of William and Kate.

The christening itself is quite the family tradition, Royal Central U.K. notes, adding Prince Louis also wore a replica of the now-famous Honiton lace christening gown.

Louis, born April 23, is being christened at the Chapel Royal, the same church where his older brother, Prince George, was christened.
