A week on from the youngest Prince Louis' christening, the Royal Family have release a series of stunning, initimate portraits of the glowing young family.

Photographed by Matt Holyoak in the Clarence House gardens, The Duchess of Cambridge lovingly cradles a dozy looking Prince Louis, who was wearing a replica of the royal christening robe, originally created for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Princess Victoria.

The royal family released four official photos from the christening. 
"Everyone was so relaxed and in such good spirits, it was an absolute pleasure. I only hope I have captured some of that joy in my photographs," Holyoak told The Daily Mail.

With the Queen and Prince Phillip absent from the christening, Kate's family took centre stage!

As Kate cradled her new baby at the christening, she could be heard describing her son to the archbishop as "very relaxed and peaceful. I hope he stays like this."

Photographer Matt Porteous also shared his own favourite shot of the youngest royal, saying "It was an honour and a privilege to photograph the christening of Prince Louis.”
