They may act coy when they're in public, but Prince William and Kate Middleton know that there's a great deal of interest in their little family -- so they're throwing the world a bone when Prince Louis is christened. They're going to let us see some photos from the special day, but overall, they're keeping things private. 

  • According to royal expert James Brookes, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will offer a “compromise” on the day of the little prince's christening. 

    Brookes told the Express: “Judging by the previous christenings, and the importance of the day for the family, Louis’s christening will be a private affair, perhaps no surprise there. The Cambridges are well aware of the media spotlight on and interest in their family -- we saw that with the recent photos of Prince George and Princess Charlotte playing at the polo match." 

    He continued: "We’ll no doubt have the official christening photos, as we did with Prince George and Princess Charlotte. These photos, and the images of the family arriving, will be seen as a compromise by the Cambridges. They give the photographers something to work with and then they expect a bit of privacy for the rest of the day.”

  • In other words, we're basically going to get something like this:

  • So far, the Duke and Duchess haven't offered any details on Louis's christening, but it's believe it will take place at Sandringham.

    “I would imagine they’ll be taken in a similar setting, either in Clarence House if the Cambridges choose St James’s Palace or at Sandringham House, if they opt for St Mary Magdalene Church," Brookes said. "I wouldn’t be surprised if they choose Sandringham again, given how close their residence at Anmer Hall is.”

    Prince George had his ceremony at St James’s Palace, as well.

  • Whatever moments the Cambridges are willing to share with us, we'll take.
