Save for an appearance in early June, Kate Middleton has shied away from the public eye lately to take care of her three kids. Today, however, is a special day: Prince Louis's christening (opens in new tab) at St. James's Palace. The Duchess of Cambridge wore a cream-colored Alexander McQueen dress (opens in new tab) while carrying the little prince into the chapel. The baby will be christened by The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby. And, he already has six godparents (opens in new tab) named!

Kate's outfit was similar in hue and style to the looks she previously chose for Prince George and Princess Charlotte's christenings. In 2013, the first-time mom wore a creamy-white Alexander McQueen dress with ruffle details on the front and paired it with a hat by milliner Jane Taylor. Two years later, for Princess Charlotte's baptism, Kate once again wore Alexander McQueen. She rocked a bespoke ivory coat dress from the fashion house, white pumps, and a matching feathered fascinator.

It seems off-white is the Kate's preferred color for christening events, perhaps as a way to match her children's gowns (opens in new tab). Prince Louis reportedly wore an ivory Honiton lace christening gown (opens in new tab), the same one his siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte wore. See Kate's three outfits side by side below and yes I know, her royal babies are ADORABLE.
