The Royal family has released official portraits from the christening of Prince Louis, which took place last Monday. Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis and other members of the royal family were in the released portraits taking at the christening of Prince Louis when he was 12 weeks old.
The photos shared by Kesington Palace came with the caption;
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have released four official photographs to mark the christening of Prince Louis on Monday 9th July.
The photographs were taken by Matt Holyoak at Clarence House, following Prince Louis’s baptism in the Chapel Royal, St. James’s Palace.
The third child of Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, was christened by Reverend Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, on July 9. Fifth in line to the British throne, Prince Louis was born on April 23.
According to tradition, he was baptised with water from River Jordan, and wore the same christening gown used by his siblings Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, three.
The photos were taken at Clarence House, the official London residence of Prince Louis’ grandparents, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
The prince and his family were joined by newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, as well as Kate Middleton’s sister Pippa and her husband James Matthews. The Middletons’ parents and brother were present in one photo.
In one photo, Princess Charlotte looked like a doting older sister as she held Prince Louis’ hand, affectionately gazing at him while the other family members looked at the camera. In another, the Duchess of Cambridge also appeared a blissful mother in a portrait shot, as she cradled the prince in her arms.
