On Monday, July 9, 11-week-old Prince Louis was celebrated when he was baptized at St. James' Palace and the entire world watched. Many were surprised by how much the precious child has changed since he was born in April.
The wonderful tradition was conducted by Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby. Many royal family members were there to celebrate the big day, including, of course, Prince William and Kate Middleton, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles.
Speaking of Prince Harry, the beloved uncle of Louis, George, and Charlotte, he definitely stepped up with his recent gift. Many could see that he takes his uncle duties very seriously, and that is why he saw no issue with his recent christening gift to his newest nephew.
Harry shelled out over $10,000 to purchase a gift that is held near and dear to Harry's heart. He gave Louis a first-edition copy of "Winnie-the-Pooh" by A.A. Milne. Princess Diana used to read the classic story to Harry when he was younger, according to The Sun.
“One of Harry’s happiest childhood memories was being read a bedtime story by his mother,” the source said.
When we thought the gift was more than enough, we come to learn that Harry has additional plans for his niece and nephews. He plans on starting a library for the young children in tribute to his beloved mother.
“She loved all the old classics and Harry had the brilliant idea of starting a little library of first editions for Louis, Charlotte and George to enjoy as they get older,” the source told The Sun.
According to that source, Pooh wasn't his first choice. In fact, he originally wanted to purchase "Through The Looking Glass," by Lewis Carroll, which was for sale at over $31,000. But Harry "decided 'Winnie-the-Poo' would be more suitable," the source said.
