Royal Family: Prince Louis christening sees Meghan steal show in GREEN

Speaking after the official shoot, Mr Holyoak said: "I was truly honoured at being asked to take the official photographs at the christening of Prince Louis, and to witness at first hand such a happy event".

Photographed by Matt Holyoak in the gardens of Clarence House, The Duchess of Cambridge cradles Prince Louis, who is wearing a replica of the royal christening robe, which was created in 1841 for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Victoria.

Prince Louis' christening photos also show the lovely bond the newborn has formed with his older siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who couldn't look more chuffed with their new baby brother.

Last week, the young prince was christened into the Church of England in a private ceremony with close family.

Prince Louis of Cambridge may be the smallest person in the official photographs of his christening but he was the most ostentatiously dressed.

As per royal tradition, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have now shared several portraits taken on the day.

Princess Charlotte is equally adorable and looked perfectly content with her new role as big sister as she gazed at her little brother.

"Everyone was so relaxed and in such good spirits, it was an absolute pleasure". The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby baptized Louis. Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip were not in attendance, and are therefore not in the photos, due a week of busy engagements, according to Press Association. As seen here, Harry's cheeky older brother Prince William ended up stealing the show.

Photographer Matt Holyoak captured the special moments at Clarence House after the christening.

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 Cambridges are now a family of five.
