The third child of Prince William and Kate Middleton was christened July 9 at The Chapel Royal in St. James's Palace.

In addition to the royal family, members of Kate's family - including her parents, Michael and Carole, brother, James, and sister, Pippa - also attended the christening.

Prince Louis may have been the star of the show, but it was his mother's family that took centre stage for this happy portrait after his christening.

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. She and Prince Harry tied the knot back in May and became the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

One of the four pictures, sees the doting mother share a sweet moment with little Louis as she held him in her arms in the garden at Clarence House.

Croatia were lions, says scorer Mandzukic

I think often it was the ball that didn't spin as much as we thought that got us out. "We are expecting big spin on day one". When Quinton de Kock completely missed the ball to be bowled, South Africa were in deep trouble at 36/6.

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

Mr Holyoak told BBC News that "everyone was so relaxed and in such good spirits, it was an absolute pleasure".

The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev. Justin Welby, presided over Louis's christening, just as he did for George and Charlotte's christenings.

'I only hope I have captured some of that joy in my photographs'. Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip were not in attendance, and are therefore not in the photos, due a week of busy engagements, according to Press Association.

The fourth and final attractive image shows mother-of-three Kate and her son alone outdoors, as she sweetly cradles Louis.

Two years later, Mario Testino - a favourite photographer of the late Princess Diana - stepped behind the lens for Princess Charlotte's christening.
