Royals release new photos to mark Prince Louis' christening

After Prince Louis' christening at the chapel at St James' Palace on Monday, 9 July Kensington Palace has released a handsome new set of snaps of the tot and his family.

The British Royal family gathered for Prince Louis' christening in the morning room at Clarence House in London.

Another family group photo, taken at Clarence House, also features Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and Prince Charles and Camilla.

While Louis sleeps on his mother's lap as Prince George, Prince William and Princess Charlotte sit alongside, the eye is immediately drawn to Kate's mother, Carole Middleton.

Kensington Palace has released family photos of Prince Louis in the arms of his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, to mark the baby boy's christening.

Prince Louis was christened earlier this week and the royal event was the source of much media attention.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a dress by designer Alexander McQueen, the same designer she's worn for each of her children's christenings, and a hat by Jane Taylor.

After nearly a week of waiting, Prince Louis's official christening photos are finally here. Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip didn't attend.

Also attending were Kate's parents, her brother and sister and Louis' six godparents, who are close friends or relatives of William and Kate.

'Everyone was so relaxed and in such good spirits, it was an absolute pleasure.

Also in attendance were both William's father, Charles, the prince of Wales and stepmother Camilla, the duchess of Cornwall.

Ahead of the christening ceremony, Catherine was overheard saying Louis reminded her "so much" of her firstborn, Prince George.

"I only hope I have captured some of that joy in my photographs".

On the sofa, William has a protective arm around George - who will be five next Sunday - while cheeky Charlotte stares challengingly at the camera as if plotting her next piece of mischief. The sweetest of the portraits puts Kate and Louis' special bond on full display as she gazes down adoringly at her third child in the only outdoor shot.
