On Sunday, July 5, 2015, Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge was christened in royal style at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Norfolk, England.
Arriving on foot, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge along with their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, waved hello to the public and gave us our third glimpse of the little princess, now just two months old.
After the private ceremony, which was attended only by close friends and relatives, the family headed to the Queen’s estate, Sandringham house, for a tea service and official portrait session. The photographs were just released today on Kensington Palace’s official Instagram and Twitter accounts.
“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,” the palace said in a statement. “They are very happy to share these photographs and hope that everyone enjoys them as much as they do.”
The stunning portraits were taken by famed photographer Mario Testino, who was a particular favorite of Princess Charlotte’s late grandmother, Princess Diana.
In addition to the family of four’s first official portrait, they shared an intimate mother-and-daughter photograph, taken in the Sandringham house drawing room. And in another photograph, we see proud dad Prince William playing with Prince George in the garden.
The entire royal family — including all four generations of heirs to the throne — then came together with the Middleton’s for a formal shot within Sandringham house.More On
