Prince Louis's official royal christening pics are here, and ye gods they're cute
Less than a week after the royal family flocked to Prince Louis’s christening, Kensington Palace has released official photos from the happy day.
Kensington Palace released four photos from Prince Louis’s christening on Sunday, July 15th, taken by Matt Holyoak at Clarence House after the ceremony. The four photos show Louis with his parents (the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge), siblings (Prince George and Princess Charlotte), aunts and uncles (Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton, James Matthews and James Middleton) as well as Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla and Carole and Michael Middleton.
Prince Louis was christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury in the Chapel Royal at London’s St James’s Palace in a private July 9th ceremony that was also attended by Louis’s godparents—Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, Lady Laura Meade, Mrs. Robert Carter and Lucy Middleton.
In the adorable photos from the occasion, Prince Louis can be seen in his white christening gown — a replica of a historic garment that dates back to the Victorian era — being officially baptized into the Church of England.
The following day, on July 16th, the royals released an additional surprise portrait of just Kate Middleton and Louis. Needless to say, it is gorgeous.
The latest photo was snapped by award-winning photographer Matt Porteous, who’s covered special royal occasions in the past. Obviously we’re always up for photos of our favorite royals, and we’re sending our congrats to little Louis.
