Prince Louis christening photos released by Kensington Palace

Prince Louis christening photos released by Kensington Palace

Kensington Palace recently shared new photos of Louis from his christening on July 9, but there's one photo in particular that stands out.

The fifth in line to the British throne, who was born on April 23, was christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury at The Chapel Royal of St James's Palace in central London. The royal mother of three also sported McQueen [her wedding designer] for the christenings of Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The garment is a handmade replica of the 1841 Royal Christening robe worn by more than 62 royal babies at their christenings - including those of Prince Louis' grandfather, father and uncle. In the photo, Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, holds Prince Louis as they pose with Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge; Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

This gorgeous photo of Prince Louis with his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, was never meant to be released.

One woman added, "I would love to see a video of the lengths the photographer had to go to for the photos with the children!"

This is not the first time that Mr Porteous, a former Les Quennevais School pupil, has taken pictures of the Royal Family.


Meghan Markle, on the other hand, is a new addition, standing beside Prince Harry for her first royal christening photograph series. The handsome photographs were taken by royal photographer Matt Holyoak.

Kate and William had another photographer, Matt Porteous, on hand to get some candid shots of the occasion for their own private collection.

Unlike Markle's top and trousers look, the Duchess of Cambridge opted for a crisp, white dress to wear while watching the tourament where Angelique Kerber beat Serena Williams in the final.

Kate's parents and siblings were also there, including her sister Pippa Middleton, who is pregnant.

Just as the sun rises and sets each day, we can rely on Prince George and Princess Charlotte killing us with their cuteness with each appearance they make.
