Prince Louis' christening is happening later today, and the very special gift his uncle Prince Harry has picked out for him has reportedly been revealed.

Prince Louis will be christened later today, three months after he was born on April 23.

It will be an intimate ceremony for Kate and William's nearest and dearest, with less than 30 people expected to attend.

Of course newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be among the guests, and they won't be showing up empty handed.

The doting uncle, who's always had a very close relationship with his brother's children, has reportedly splurged on a very special gift for little Louis, which we're sure he'll treasure forever.

According to The Sun, the 33-year-old has said that he spent £8,000 to get his nephew a first edition Winnie-The-Pooh, in a bid to start a library for the youngest of the Cambridge brood.

The story is said to have special significance to Prince Harry, as his mum Princess Diana used to read classics like Winnie-The-Pooh to him before bedtime.

'One of Harry’s happiest childhood memories was being read a bedtime story by his mother', a source told The Sun.

'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.

'He originally wanted to get Lewis Carroll’s Through The Looking Glass, which was on sale for £24,000, but decided Winnie-The-Pooh would be more suitable for a first time. Robinson Crusoe was William’s favourite book, but Harry loved all things A.A. Milne.'

Prince Louis will be christened today at The Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace, in London, and he will wear the same gown his brother and sister, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, worn at their christening - a replica of the dress made for Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter in 1841.

Fingers crossed for some very cute snaps...
