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

Photographer Matt Holyoak spoke of photographing the family for the special occasion, saying: "I was truly honoured at being asked to take the official photographs at the christening of Prince Louis, and to witness at first hand such a happy event".

Louis, 12 weeks old today, slept through the entire ceremony but here he has opened his eyes as his mother stands in the gardens of Clarence House.

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.

The christening photos are the first without the Queen, who missed her great-grandson's baptism, which took place in a private ceremony. Photographer Matt Holyoak took the photos of Prince Louis and his family at Clarence House following the service.
