The official portraits from Prince Louis’ christening were taken by Matt Holyoak, who had also taken pictures for Queen Elizabeth and Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip’s 70th wedding anniversary.

Conspicuous by their absence at their service on July 9 were the Queen and the Duke.

William’s third child was baptized by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverent Just Welby, in the Chapel Royal at St. James’ Palace.

The godparents were part of the private ceremony which began at 4 p.m. and went on for 40 minutes. It also marks the first time when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were photographed with their three children, four-year-old Prince George, three-year-old Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

Others in attendance were Prince of Wales Charles, his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall Camilla, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan, Mr. and Mrs. Michael Middleton, and Mr. and Mrs. James Mathews.

Prince Louis Arthur Charles was born on April 23, St. George’s Day in the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London.

For his christening, he was dressed in the traditional cream gown, which was used for his older siblings as well. It is a replica of the lace and satin dress made by Queen Victoria for her eldest daughter in 1841.

The original robe was worn for all Royal christenings including the Queen. Dressmaker to the Queen, Angela Kelly, was responsible for making the replica dress to preserve the original. The first member of the Royal family to wear the replica gown was the youngest of her eight grandchildren, James, Viscount Severn.

Louis’ elder brother, Prince George, too was baptized in the Chapel Royal, while his sister, Princess Charlotte was christened at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Sandringham.

Right after the ceremony, all the guests attended a private tea at Clarence House. They were served slices of cake taken from a tier of William and Kate’s wedding cake.
