On Sunday, Kensington Palace released Prince Louis’ official christening photos. And, as you would totally expect of the royal family, they’re absolutely stunning.
Prince William and Kate Middleton’s third child was the center of England’s attention on Jul. 9. Little Prince Louis’ christening was a full-family event that included his mum and dad (obviously) along with plenty of other royalty.
The official portraits, taken by photographer Matt Holyoak, feature a who’s who of the British royal family. Pictured in the all-too-elegant family portrait are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (or as Louis knows them—mum and dad). Prince Louis’ big bro and sis (Prince George and Princess Charlotte), the Duke and Duchess of Sussex (a.k.a. Prince Harry and new bride Meghan Markle), the Prince of Wales (Louis’ grandfather, Prince Charles) and the Duchess of Cambridge.
The portrait didn’t just include the royals. Along with the various dukes, duchesses, princes and princess were Kate Middleton’s family—her parents Carole and Michael Middleton, as well as little sister Pippa Matthews and her husband James, and “little” bro, James Middleton.
The christening photos also included sweet pics of Prince William, Kate and their kiddos as well as two stunning photos of just mum and baby.
Noticeably absent from the family portrait? The Queen. Even though Queen Elizabeth II did not attend the christening, there is a gentle reminder of Louis’ great-grandmother in the pics. The fam photo includes a portrait of the Queen, hanging just over Michael Middleton’s shoulder!
