A heartwarming photograph of the Duchess of Cambridge cradling Prince Louis after his christening was released by Kensington Palace today.
Louis, 12 weeks old today, slept through the entire ceremony with a wide opened-mouth smile.
The palace tweeted this morning: 'The Duke and Duchess hope that everyone enjoys this lovely photograph of Prince Louis as much as they do.'
Louis was wearing a replica of the royal christening robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, which was created in 1841 for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Victoria, the Princess Royal.
That gown was worn for all subsequent royal baptisms including the present Queen, her children and grandchildren.
But by 2008 it was clear the gown was becoming delicate and the Queen's senior dresser Angela Kelly ran up a hand-made replica in order to preserve the original.
Louis was christened in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace last Monday.
Mr Holyoak, who took the pictures, said: '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.'
