See the Beautiful Official Photos from Princess Charlotte’s Christening

The official photos from Princess Charlotte’s christening are finally here, and as expected, they’re absolutely gorgeous.

Posted Kensington Palace’s Instagram account on Thursday (July 9, 2015) and shot by famed fashion photographer Mario Testino at the July 5th christening, the first photo released was a family portrait at Sandringham House.

It featured Prince William with Kate Middleton, 2-year-old Prince George, 2-month-old Princess Charlotte, Prince William’s paternal grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, the Middleton family (Michael, Pippa, James, and Carole Middleton), Prince CharlesCamilla, and the Duke of Edinburgh. Notably absent was Prince Harry, who was in Africa and missed the ceremony. 

Wearing a replica of the royal family’s christening gown (one worn for generations by the royal babies), the Princess and her mother pose for the sweetest candid photo, as does Prince George with his father.
