For those who may have missed the big ceremony, an 11-week-old Prince Louis was christened on July 9 in front of immediate family and close friends.

Louis' royal christening robe was made by Angela Kelly, who also serves as the Queen's dressmaker.

Kate arrived at the church holding a sleeping Prince Louis in her arms. Her husband looked after Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who both looked very happy and ready to take a few family pictures before the day was over.
