Proud parents Prince William and Kate Middleton just released their youngest son’s christening photos for the public to see! Photographer Matt Porteous shot the photos of Prince Louis and his family at the Chapel Royal at St. James’s Palace, where he was christened on July 9th. Matt Holyoak, another photographer, also took photos of the Royal Family inside and outside of Clarence House.
“Their Royal Highnesses hope that everyone enjoys this lovely photograph of Prince Louis as much as they do,” said Kensington Palace via Twitter.
The Duchess of Cambridge decided to continue her tradition of wearing Alexander McQueen in off-white or another neutral color for her third child’s church blessing. Harper’s Bazaar reports that she wore a simple, white McQueen midi dress with puff sleeves. She topped off the look with a coordinating headband adorned with flowers. “For Princess Charlotte‘s christening in 2015, Middleton also wore a stark white Alexander McQueen fit-and-flare dress and matching fascinator,” according to Harper’s Bazaar. “In 2013, for the blessing of their first child, Prince George, the Duchess chose an off-white McQueen dress with off-centered ruffle that perfectly matched her son’s christening dress.”
