Prince Louis christening: Kate Middleton and Prince William share official photos

16 July, 2018, 09:39 | Author: Ethel Goodwin

The official photos from Prince Louis of Cambridge's christening have been released by Kensington Palace today.

One of the snaps shows them surrounded by Prince Charles, Camilla, Kate's family and Prince Harry and Meghan.

Kate's sister Pippa, who is now pregnant with her first child, proudly stood with her husband James Matthews and brother James Middleton.

The Queen and Prince Philip did not attend Louis's christening, likely due to this week's busy schedule of events, and so they are not in the portraits.

Britain's royal family on Sunday released the official christening photos of their newest addition, Prince Louis, fifth in line to the throne. One shows the duke and duchess with their immediate families.

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

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




The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall were all at the church for the special day, but the queen and Prince Philip were noticeably absent.

In the first shot, Louis is surrounded by both sides of his family, the Middletons and the royals, as he rests contently in his mother's arms.

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

In another handsome shot, Kate poses alone with Prince Louis in the garden.

The Duchess of Cambridge was a vision for the third time over in her cream christening ensemble by Alexander McQueen, a v-neck dress with embellished shoulders, which she topped off with an oversized floral-bedecked headband by Jane Taylor.

Two years later, Mario Testino - a favourite photographer of the late Princess Diana - stepped behind the lens for Princess Charlotte's christening.
