He will be christened in the Chapel Royal of the St. James's Palace in central London, close to Buckingham Palace, the BBC said.
The Queen, 92, and the Duke of Edinburgh, 97, did not attend, in what was described as a "mutual decision" made some time ago.
There for the ceremony were Louis's grandfather the Prince of Wales, step-grandmother the Duchess of Cornwall and maternal grandparents Carole and Michael Middleton. The royal has previously worn the earrings at formal occasions including the Garter Day ceremony and the State Opening of Parliament, and on Monday Kate sported pearl versions of the stunning design at her son's christening.
The royal family ― sans Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip ― showed up for Prince Louis Arthur Charles' christening on Monday. The original is now too delicate to be worn, so a copy has been made by the Queen's dresser Angela Kelly. I don't know why, don't ask me, but whatever the British royal family does, I gaze upon with great interest. James, Viscount Severn, was the first baby to wear the new outfit at his christening in 2008.

Prince William could then be heard telling Charlotte: "Well done". The Queen, then Princess Elizabeth, was christened in the Palace's private chapel in 1926.
Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the spiritual leader of the world's Anglicans, will lead the service in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace.
