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

Members of the royal family appear in another photo without the Middletons, a third photo features the Cambridge five, and the fourth photo is an image of just Kate and Louis.

It was one of several pictures released by Kensington Palace last night.

On the sofa, William has a protective arm around George - who will be five next Sunday - while cheeky Charlotte stares challengingly at the camera as if plotting her next piece of mischief.

Ahead of the christening ceremony, Catherine was overheard saying Louis reminded her "so much" of her firstborn, Prince George.

In attendance at the royal service was Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles, Prince Harry and his new bride Meghan Markle, Carole and Michael Middleton, Pippa Middleton and James Matthews, and James Middleton.

The stunning photos were taken by Matt Holyoak in the morning room at Clarence House, where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge held a tea after the christening.

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

Prince Louis may have been the star of the show, but it was his mother's family that took centre stage for this happy portrait after his christening.

Louis was sound asleep as he was carried into the Chapel Royal by Kate for the christening ceremony, which lasted 40 minutes. "I only hope I have captured some of that joy in my photographs", Holyoak told The Daily Mail.

He is not new to working with the royals, as he photographed the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh as part of a series of portraits released to mark their 70th wedding anniversary.

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.

She again wore McQueen for the christening of Prince Louis, this time around she chose a striking white dress.
