    Kate Middleton and Prince William are picture perfect parents in a new royal portrait, as the young family are captured on camera in an official photograph following Prince George’s christening.

    The Queen sits proudly alongside three generations of future heirs as she’s joined for a separate picture with her son Prince Philip, grandson Prince William and great-grandson Prince George. What’s not to love?

    Kate Middleton’s parents Carole and Michael then join the royal family at Clarence House, alongside sister Pippa Middleton and her brother James for an historic group shot.

    With the Queen and Caroline rocking rich blue hues, Pippa and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, keep things coordinated with the Duchess of Cambridge’s ivory ensemble, designed by Alexander McQueen.

    Prince George, of course, is also sporting his own stunning set of cream lace, as he’s pictured in the traditional christening gown. The replica gown, crafted by Her Majesty’s dressmaker, Angela Kelly, was the talk of the day as Kate cuddled her three-month-old son.

    Meanwhile the men, including a rather dapper Prince Harry, are suited and suave for the history-making photo.

    Prince George was christened on Wednesday 23 October at the Chapel Royal inside St James’ Palace.

    The Archbishop of Canterbury conducted the service, which was attended by just 22 of Kate and Wills’ closest friends and family.

    Among them were George’s seven godparents, Zara Tindall, Oliver Baker, Emilia Jardine-Paterson, Earl Grosvenor, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, Julia Samuel and William van Cutsem.

    With the entire family beaming with happiness (queue the occasional cheesy grin), the new portrait is simply adorable. And we’re still oh-so-smitten with Kate’s McQueen dress!
