The British Royal family are living their best life at the moment.

We're still basking in the sunshine that is Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding but don't think we've forgotten about the royal's upcoming highlight: Prince Louis' christening!

While Kensington Palace have yet to announce a date for Prince William and Duchess Kate's son's baptism- but we already know that it will be a fabulous day.

Especially given the fact that the little Prince's grandmother Carole Middleton happens to be on the UK's best party planners.

The Duchess of Cambridge's mum has hinted what could be on the cards for young Louis' celebrations after sharing her top tips for a christening in her latest column for Baby London magazine.

The 63-year-old spares no expense advising you need things like scented candles, a 'naming day time capsule' and a casual budget of £2,000 (approx $3530).

The Daily Mail got their hands on the column and have shared that Carole wants new parents to set up a memory box that guests can place "handwritten notes, photographs or trinkets" inside for the baby to receive on their eighteenth birthday.

If you're confused about what to gift the baby, Carole has some amazing (and exxy) options including a Monsoon silk gown (which is currently on sale for £125/$220).

Other gift ideas include:

  • English Trousseau piggy bank from Harrods - £49.95 (approx $88)

  • Philippa Herbert plaster cast of the baby's feet - £265 (approx $467)

  • Meminio leather 'memory case' - £125 (approx $220)

  • Steiff teddy - £30 (approx $53)

Granny Middleton is really in the business of sharing.

Channeling her best Oprah, guests don't go home empty-handed with the British socialite suggesting that parents give mementos like "votive candles, pretty chocolates and silver charms".

Covering all her bases, the proud royal-mum-in-law also gave a nod to all the singers and harpist out there - recommending them as the ideal music choice.

Prince Louis, who was born on April 23rd, is expected to be baptised later this month.

If the youngster is following in his sibling's Prince George and Princess Charlotte's footsteps - then he'll be dressed in the same Honiton lace and white satin gown worn.

We'll be seeing his family in the next week, with Duchess Kate, Prince William and their eldest two expected to attend Trooping the Colour.

George and Charlotte, who return to school this week, are expected to attend Trooping the Colour in celebration of their Gan-Gan, the Queen.
