Royal family releases new photos to mark Prince Louis’s christening

Kate and William had another photographer, Matt Porteous, on hand to get some candid shots of the occasion for their own private collection.

OK! Online spoke to author and body language analyst Judi James, who said the pictures are showing a "relaxing of protocol and status rules in the royal family".

The photographs were taken at Clarence House by Matt Holyoak, on the day of Louis' christening at St. James' Palace.

And when Kate gave birth to Prince Louis in April this year, her stylist was among the first people seen arriving at the Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital in London, in order to help prepare the Duchess to face the cameras on her way to bring her third child home for the first time.

She continues to explain: "The large group shot is also equally relaxed and the "power" symmetry is telling".

Judi also notes the loving look Charlotte is giving her younger brother. And a fourth photograph showed Kate gazing adoringly at her little one outside the house.

Other photos include one of the entire family, including Kate's parents and siblings, as well as a stunning one of just the Cambridges, and one of Kate and Louis.
