Prince William and Kate Middleton choose Matt Holyoak to take the pictures, which are taken in the Morning Room at Clarence House.

AceShowbiz - Prince Louis' official christening photos are finally here. Kensington Palace released on Sunday, July 15 four photographs from the royal baby's special occasion which took place at the Chapel Royal in St. James' palace in London on July 9.

Proud parents Prince William and Kate Middleton chose Matt Holyoak to take the photos, which were taken in the Morning Room at Clarence House. The youngest child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was dressed in an elaborate handmade replica of the 1841 Royal Christening Robe in the photos. The first picture featured William, Kate and their three children surrounded by both sides of their family.

The second photo, meanwhile, only included the royal family members, including Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Prince George and Princess Charlotte stole the spotlight in this picture, with the young prince flashing a huge smile as he sat on his dad's lap. On the other hand, Charlotte sat next to her mother as she sweetly gazed at her little brother and held his hand.

The little princess stole the spotlight when she gave a cheeky grin in the third portrait, which only featured the family of five. Charlotte held Louis' christening robe as she posed with her leg to the side in a little ballerina stance.

After posing for photos with her family members, Kate then stepped outside under the trees to take a special picture along with Louis in the garden of Clarence House. She wore an Alexander McQueen dress with a structured shoulder detail and a dramatic Jane Taylor headpiece.

"I was truly honored at being asked to take the official photographs at the christening of Prince Louis, and to witness at first hand such a happy event," Matt said of taking pictures for the royal family. "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."
