Prince Louis Christening: Here’s Why Guests Were Given 7-Year-Old Old Cake

Prince Louis’ christening may have been a lavish affair on Monday afternoon, but Prince William and Kate Middleton didn’t have to do much preparation when it came down to the cake.

Social media users took to Twitter in droves after noticing that Kensington Palace had confirmed guests would be eating a tier taken from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s 2011 wedding cake.

The royal family’s official website announced: “Following the service, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will give a private tea at Clarence House. Guests will be served slices of christening cake, which is a tier taken from The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding cake.”

Despite some Twitter users posting the sick emoji in response to the statement, others pointed out that it was simply tradition to do such a thing.

Kate and William also ate a tier from the Fiona Cairns masterpiece – which was created from 17 individual fruit cakes – at Princess Charlotte’s christening in 2015 and Prince George’s in 2013.

The 11-week-old Prince was baptized at the Chapel Royal in St James’s Palace, with new Aunt Meghan Markle, Uncle Prince Harry, Grandfather Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla all in attendance.

Two people who did not attend however, were the Queen and Prince Philip. But, according to the BBC, this was a decision made “some time ago” and not due to health reasons.

Her Majesty, 92, was due to travel back from Norfolk Monday and has a busy week ahead with celebrations marking the centenary of the RAF on Tuesday, as well as Trump’s visit to Windsor on Friday.
