Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge gazes adoringly at her baby son Prince Louis who slept through the entire ceremony but here he has opened his eyes in an intimate portrait. Prince Louis is wearing a replica of the royal christening robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, which was created in 1841 for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Victoria, the Princess Royal. That gown was worn for all subsequent royal baptisms including the present Queen, her children, and grandchildren. But by 2008 it was clear the gown was becoming delicate and the Queen's senior dresser Angela Kelly ran up a hand-made replica in order to preserve the original.
Prince Harry attended with his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, who wore an olive green Ralph Lauren dress with a Stephen Jones hat and a matching pair of suede stilettos
