The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby lead the service with support from the Dean of The Chapel Royal, The Right Reverend and Right Honourable the Lord Chartres, and The Sub-Dean of the Chapel Royal, The Reverend Canon Paul Wright.

Prince Louis, the third child of Britain's Prince William and wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, was christened at a small, private ceremony on Tuesday. British photographer Matt Holyoak immortalized the precious moment in the Morning Room at Clarence House and outside on the grounds, where Prince William and Kate posed for a number of snaps with their children and extended relatives - and the first official photos of the new family of five couldn't be any sweeter!

Prince Louis may have been the star of the show, but it was his mother's family that took centre stage for this happy portrait after his christening.

With Prince George and Princess Charlotte joining their parents for Louis's big day, it was the first time the Cambridges have been seen together in public as a family of five. Kate's younger sister, Pippa Middleton, is pregnant with her first child with her husband, James Matthews.

According to Harper's Bazaar, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had christening guests over at Clarence House for afternoon tea and served them cake from their 2011 wedding.

The christening photos are the first without the Queen, who missed her great-grandson's baptism, which took place in a private ceremony.

Another family group photo, taken at Clarence House, also features Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and Prince Charles and Camilla. A fourth image also sees the Cambridge's pose on a ornate chair, while Prince Charles and his wife Camilla stood behind them alongside the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in the back row.
