We can't stop looking!!
Prince Louis’ Christening took place last week at the Chapel Royal in St James’ Palace, overseen by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.
While the day saw some iconic style moments (Kate in white and Meghan in olive green) and some classic Princess Charlotte sass, telling the paparazzi that they weren’t invited, it was the photos that got everyone talking this weekend.
Yes, that’s right. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have officially released Prince Louis’ Christening photographs - and they are heartwarmingly sweet.
Proving that they are as millennial as they are relatable, Kate and Wills chose to share some intimate snaps, the most relaxed royal Christening photographs to date.
‘The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have released four official photographs to mark the christening of Prince Louis on Monday 9th July,’ the couple announced in a statement on the Kensington Royal Instagram account. ‘The photographs were taken by Matt Holyoak at Clarence House, following Prince Louis's baptism in the Chapel Royal, St. James’s Palace.’
‘The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with Members of @TheRoyalFamily,’ captioned the next snap. ‘This photograph was taken by Matt Holyoak in the Morning Room at Clarence House, following Prince Louis's baptism in the Chapel Royal, St. James’s Palace.’
After releasing the photos of the extended family, the Duke and Duchess released a couple of intimate shots of just them followed by an additional photo of Kate and her baby son.
‘The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Louis in the garden at Clarence House, following Prince Louis's christening. 📷 by Matt Holyoak’, they captioned a sweet photo of Kate and Louis, before posting a final photo of the baby Prince smiling.
‘The Duke and Duchess hope that everyone enjoys this lovely photograph of Prince Louis as much as they do,’ the photo read.
We definitely do.
