Princess Charlotte and Diana

The breathtakingly attractive photos were unveiled to mark the young Prince's christening, which was attended by senior members of the royal family.

The official photographer, Matt Holyoak, previously shot images for the royal family, including taking photos for The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh's 70th wedding anniversary.

One of the snaps shows them surrounded by Prince Charles, Camilla, Kate's family and Prince Harry and Meghan.

Writing on Twitter, Kensington Palace said: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have released four official photographs to mark the christening of Prince Louis on Monday 9th July".

Prince Louis, the third child of Britain's Prince William and wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, was christened at a small, private ceremony on Tuesday.

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall also took their places behind the young family, and Harry and Megan also posed for the first official portraits since their marriage two months ago.

Also attending were Kate's parents, her brother and sister and Louis' six godparents, who are close friends or relatives of William and Kate.

Louis is wearing a replica of the royal christening robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, which was created in 1841 for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Victoria, the Princess Royal.

Louis was sound asleep as he was carried into the chapel by his mother for the christening ceremony which lasted 40 minutes.

Reproduced by dressmaker to the Queen Angela Kelly, it was worn by his older siblings, George and Charlotte at their christenings.

After the ceremony, the baby prince looked content and adorable as he wiggled his fingers at his smiling mum.

With Prince George and Princess Charlotte joining their parents for Louis's big day, it was the first time the Cambridges have been seen together in public as a family of five. Holyoak has worked with a host of celebrities and his photos have regularly been splashed on the covers of magazines such as Harper's Bazaar, Shortlist and Dazed And Confused.
