The royal family has released Prince Louis' official christening portraits and they are an absolute dream to behold.

Four images were taken by celebrity photographer Matt Holyoak after the baptism in The Chapel Royal at St James's Palace last week.

The duchess added, with a smile: "I hope he stays like this".

In newly released photos, Prince Louis can be seen holding hands with his big sister, Prince Charlotte, at the baby boy's christening last week.

In the second snap, Louis poses with uncle and aunt the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, grandparents Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla, as well as the Cambridges.

Mr Holyoak, who photographed the Queen and Prince Philip past year on their 70th wedding anniversary, took the four official photographs at Prince Charles' official residence.

As per royal tradition, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have now shared several portraits taken on the day.

Prince William and Catherine have marked their youngest son Prince Louis' christening with a series of intimate and natural photos with their closest family members. The gown is based off the one Queen Victoria had made for her daughter's christening in 1841.

The Prince's godparents were also announced the morning of his christening as Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, Lady Laura Meade, Robert Carter and Lucy Middleton.

Then, of course, there's the first official portrait of the Cambridge's as a family of five - and it's lovely!
