On Sunday evening Kensington Palace released the official photographs from Prince Louis' christening taken by photographer Matt Holyoak.

The world can't stop gushing over Prince Louis' official christening photos.

The royal couple also named six close friends and family members to be godparents to Prince Louis.

Kate Middleton was heard describing a sleeping Prince Louis as "very relaxed and peaceful".

A third shows the Cambridge family in an image that recalls their Christmas portrait from a year ago; it's the family's first official picture as a five. Photographer Matt Porteous is credited with taking the sweet snap on little Louis' big day.

While the Queen and Prince Philip were not present in the photos, The Duchess of Cambridge's family took centre stage.

Louis, 12 weeks old today, slept through the entire ceremony but was pictured alert and with a wide opened-mouth smile as he was held upright by his mother in the gardens of Clarence House. Standing, left to right: Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall; Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales; Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex; and wife Megan, the Duchess of Sussex.

However, in 2008, Queen Elizabeth ended that tradition when she commissioned her dressmaker to make a replica in order to preserve the original gown. The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby baptized Louis.
