Official photographs released from Prince Louis of Cambridge's christening

Louis was sound asleep as he was carried into the Chapel Royal by Kate for the christening ceremony, but afterwards looked content and wiggled his fingers as his mother beamed at him as she held him in her arms.

The service was conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, who also christened both Prince George and Princess Charlotte. This is the first time Prince William and Kate have posed for picture as a family of five, with Princess Charlotte and Prince George looking just as adorable as ever.

The British Royal family gathered for Prince Louis' christening. Absent from the portraits are the Queen and Prince Philip, who are believed to have made a joint decision with Prince William and Kate not to attend as they were travelling back from Sandringham ahead of a busy week.

However, as with many royal family photos, there are some hidden details you probably missed when first taking a look at the photographs.

In fact there were more Middletons present than HRHs as guests of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. "The photographs were taken by Matt Holyoak at Clarence House, following Prince Louis' christening", the palace tweeted.

Mr Holyoak told BBC News that "everyone was so relaxed and in such good spirits, it was an absolute pleasure". Get all the details of the royal christening, in the latest episode of the New Idea Royals podcast.

Unfortunately, the jaguar attacked and killed four alpaca, one emu and one fox in nearby habitats before it was sedated. It was not immediately clear how the animal got out of its enclosure and zoo officials said they were investigating.

In another lovely shot, Kate poses alone with Prince Louis in the garden. "I only hope I have captured some of that joy in my photographs", Holyoak told The Daily Mail.

Holyoak has previously worked with the royals in the past and photographed the portraits of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip for their 70th wedding anniversary in 2017. Kate's younger sister, Pippa Middleton, is pregnant with her first child with her husband, James Matthews.

The final image shows only the Cambridges, with Charlotte apparently playing peek-a-boo from underneath Louis's christening gown as Kate gazes at her baby son and a beaming William placing a comforting hand on a slightly hesitant George.
