Official photo released from christening of Prince Louis

The duchess is seen wearing a white outfit by her go-to label, Alexander McQueen, while little Louis's royal christening robe is made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin. An additional photograph, released on Monday, was taken by Matt Porteous. Front row: Prince George, Prince William, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Louis, Princess Charlotte.

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

A third photo of the Cambridge family by themselves features Kate smiling down at Louis in her arms, while George stands with one hand in his pocket and Charlotte leans into the trailing christening gown. Kate's younger sister, Pippa Middleton, is pregnant with her first child with her husband, James Matthews.

The cake has been preserved and was also served at the christenings of George and Charlotte.

Another added, "These are handsome photos!"

"Everyone was so relaxed and in such good spirits, it was an absolute pleasure", Holyoak said.

Some fans questioned why The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh were not present in the photos, but they did not actually attend the christening, hence the reason for their absence.

Fifth in line to the British throne, Prince Louis was born on April 23.

In another shot, the Cambridges pose in another more intimate family photo alongside Prince Louis' grandparents Prince Charles and Camilla and his auntie and uncle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby welcomed the royals at the entrance to the chapel.

The photographs were released by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to mark the milestone.

The past christening photos have featured the youngster peacefully asleep, or at least resting, in his mom's arms as the rest of his regal family poses around him.
