The hidden details you missed in Prince Louis' christening photos

16 July 2018

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

With Prince George and Princess Charlotte joining their parents for Louis's big day, it was the first time the Cambridges have been seen together in public as a family of five.

Apart from leaving the hospital, this is Prince Louis' first royal outing!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have selected different photographers to capture the official portraits for each of their children's christenings.

Not only that, it was the first major celebration held where Kate Middleton, Prince William, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were all in attendance for professional photos.

In total, four of photos were released, and they were taken by Matt Holyoak in Clarence House's Morning Room.

Kate's sister Pippa, 34, now Mrs Matthews and expecting her own child, also stands behind the Chippendale sofa in a custom-made Alessandra Rich outfit that complements her mother's.

The ex-actress can be seen standing in between Harry and Camilla while beaming widely.

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

One shows only members of the royal family, with Charlotte holding her baby brother's tiny hand. George is by now sitting on his father's lap and grinning happily at the camera, presumably at some behind-the-scenes antics.

Prince Louis was born on April 23 and is the youngest child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

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

The Middletons were out for the second photo, which only features members of the royal family (and those who are members by marriage, including Meghan and Camilla). I only hope I have captured some of that joy in my photographs, ' Holyoak said in an official statement.
