Four images were released altogether, including a attractive one of Kate, and her youngest child Prince Louis, where the Duchess is looking adoringly at the young prince.

Prince Louis is shown wearing the same christening gown that both Prince George and Princess Charlotte wore for their christenings. The official photographs were taken by Matt Holyoak after the christening.

Also there: His uncle Prince Harry and his wife, Duchess Meghan of Sussex, his aunt Pippa Middleton Matthews and her husband James Matthews, and his uncle James Middleton.

Kensington Palace has released one more official photograph from the christening of Prince Louis, the third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The christening on Monday, July 9, was the first time the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children had been seen together as a family of five. In one photo, Prince William, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte also pose alongside the baby.

The family had previously released more formal portraits from the christening.

Another hymn sung at Prince Louis' service was This Is The Day Which The Lord Hath Made, which was composed by John Rutter for Kate and William's wedding.

'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.

Duchess Catherine's family, including her parents, brother and sister, were also involved in the special occasion and appeared in the photographs alongside Prince Charles and Camilla, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The ceremony on Monday lasted 40 minutes and the royals were welcomed by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

A week after their youngest son's christening, the royal family have released a series of intimate portraits.

The duchess added, with a smile: "I hope he stays like this".
