Kensington Palace has released Prince Louis's christening photos and OMG, how stunning

Princess Charlotte and Diana

Kensington Palace shared a series of images of the adorable bub with his parents, Kate Middleton and Prince William, in Clarence house, alongside members of the royal family. Noticeably absent from the special day was Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. The Duke of Cambridge looked dapper in his blue suit and tie.

Louis was christened in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace last Monday, before the families then reassembled at nearby Clarence House.

'I only hope I have captured some of that joy in my photographs'.

The service for Prince Louis was attended by guests including Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, and newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan. Standing, left to right: Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex; Megan, the Duchess of Sussex; Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall; Prince Charles, Prince of Wales; Carole Middleton, Michael Middleton, Pippa Matthews, James Matthews and James Middleton.

It is a replica of the royal christening robe, first worn in 1841.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev. Justin Welby, presided over Louis's christening, just as he did for George and Charlotte's christenings.

Princess Charlotte couldn't keep her eyes off her little brother as she posed for the photo with just royal family members. And it's clear to see why the Londoner, who has shot everyone from Ryan Reynolds to Jennifer Lawrence, is one of the world's most renowned portrait photographers.

The photographs were taken by Matt Holyoak in the Morning Room and the garden at Clarence House, immediately following Prince Louis's baptism.

The final image shows only the Cambridges, with Charlotte apparently playing peek-a-boo from underneath Louis's christening gown as Kate gazes at her baby son and a beaming William placing a comforting hand on a slightly hesitant George.

Her Majesty and Prince Philip did not miss the ceremony due to poor health, but mutually agreed with the Cambridge family "some time ago" that they would not attend, Buckingham Palace confirmed.
