Kensington Palace has unveiled another official image showing the christening of the third child of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton.
It previously released four images on 9 July showing the young Prince Louis together with the rest of the Royal Family. The latest image was taken in Clarence House and released on Monday, 16 July. It shows Middleton holding Prince Louis in her arms, while he looks away from the camera, mouth agape.
Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle are also present in the family photo, together with Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla Parker Bowles.
The portraits show Prince Louis dressed in a long silk and lace robe, which is a replica of the 1841 Royal Christening robe. The original robe was worn by over 62 royal babies during their christening. Queen Elizabeth, however, decided to put that tradition to an end in 2008 to preserve the original gown. She then asked her dressmaker to create a replica of the gown, which was worn by Prince Louis.
The Queen and Prince Phillip are, unfortunately, absent from the portraits due to a busy schedule. This included celebrating 100 years of Britain's Royal Air Force on 10 July and the tea session with US President Donald Trump on 13 July.
See the lovely portraits photos below.
