The good news for his football-loving dad, Prince William, is that 9 July is one of the rest days in the World Cup.
It falls neatly between the potential quarter-final and semi-final dates for England, should the national team progress that far in the competition.
Last month, the prince, who is president of the FA, had to miss the FA Cup final to fulfil best man duties at his brother Harry’s wedding.
Prince Louis will be baptised at the same place as his older brother George. Their sister, Charlotte, had her christening at St Mary Magdalene Church at the Queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk.
