Say it isn't so!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed their third child on Monday 23rd April, naming their newborn Louis Arthur Charles - known officially as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge.

Since his birth, Louis has become the most talked about baby of the moment, with fans across the world eager to know everything, from the meaning behind his moniker to who his god parents will be - with some speculating that aunt-to-be Meghan Markle could be on the list.

The main question surrounding the baby prince however is whether he will be in attendance at his uncle Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle, taking place on Saturday.

Both his siblings, Princess Charlotte and Prince George, have been confirmed to be parts of the bridal party, taking on the roles of bridesmaid and page boy.

The royal wedding is set to take place on 19th May, at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, with royal family members and celebrity friends coming from far and wide.

But will Prince Louis be in attendance?

The baby prince is just a month old and according to Kensington Palace, this won't be the newborn's first official event as they confirmed that Prince Louis would not be in attendance.

The Duchess of Cambridge was confirmed to be attending, but with two toddlers in the bridal party, she's sure to have her hands full.

We'll be tuning in tomorrow.
