Could the royals be any more perfect? Princess Charlotte and her big family posed for their official christening portrait and it’s everything. Sadly, Prince Harry wasn’t in attendance. Click to see all of the pics!
Princess Charlotte, 2 months, and her royal christening gown were photographed by the famous Mario Testino on July 5, and the pics are breathtaking. The sweet baby sat alongside her royal family, which included her parents Kate Middleton and Prince William, and also her big brother Prince George, 23 months.
The pictures are finally in, and they are stunning. In the main family portrait, the royal family is all smiles as they sit together on a parlor sofa at Sandringham House. The sweet little girl is being held in her mother’s arms right next to her brother Prince George, her dad, and also her great grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II. Honestly, we love seeing the queen look so happy!
Standing behind them are the Middletons — Michael, Pippa, James, and Carole. They are standing alongside Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and the Duke of Edinburgh. We really wish Prince Harry could have been in the family’s photo, but he’s in Africa for the summer.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their whole family had a wonderful day on Sunday and were delighted to share the special occasion with the thousands of people who came to Sandringham,” a Kensington Palace spokesperson told the press about the portraits. “They are very happy to share these photographs and hope that everyone enjoys them as much as they do.”
As for the famous photographer who captured these wonderful pictures perfectly, Mario was Princess Diana‘s favorite photographer. The royals continuously use him to take their family’s photos, which included his past shoot of William and Kate’s engagement.
Charlotte’s Royal Christening Garmet
The ceremony, which was led by Queen Elizabeth II, was conducted by the head of the Church of England, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev, Justin Welby. Little Charlotte wore a replica of the original satin and lace garment that was made for Queen Victoria‘s first child in 1841.
It’s amazing to think that up until 2008, that garment was worn by every royal baby, but it became too fragile so the queen ordered for a copy to be made. George has also worn the same garment for the christening.
