Royal Family release new portraits from Prince Louis' christening

The breathtakingly attractive photos were unveiled to mark the young Prince's christening, which was attended by senior members of the royal family.

In one photo, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are joined by their children, along with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.

Kate's sister Pippa, who is now pregnant with her first child, proudly stood with her husband James Matthews and brother James Middleton. "The photographs were taken by Matt Holyoak at Clarence House, following Prince Louis's christening".

Mr Holyoak told BBC News that "everyone was so relaxed and in such good spirits, it was an absolute pleasure".

"I was truly honored at being asked to take the official photographs at the christening of Prince Louis, and to witness at first hand such a happy event", Holyoak said in a statement, according to People.

In the final shot, the Cambridges pose as five-some, with Prince George and Princess Charlotte posing in the fore.

The second photo includes just the royal family members, while the third photo debuts the new family of five.

Rounding out the four photos is a lovely mother-son portrait of the Duchess, 36, cradling her three-month-old son.

Prince Louis' whole family gathered for his christening photoshoot.

Louis' great-grandparents, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, were unable to attend the christening.

Louis, 12 weeks old today, slept through the entire ceremony but here he has opened his eyes as his mother stands in the gardens of Clarence House.

After the ceremony, the baby prince looked content and wiggled his fingers as Kate gazed down and beamed at him as she held him in her arms. The Duke of Cambridge looked dapper in his blue suit and tie.

The christening photos are the first without the Queen, who missed her great-grandson's baptism, which took place in a private ceremony.
