Royal Family: Prince Louis christening sees Meghan steal show in GREEN

Louis was christened in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace last Monday, before the families then reassembled at nearby Clarence House.

Kensington Palace has released the official photos from Prince Louis' christening and the royals were all smiles.

Prince Louis may have been the star of the show, but it was his mother's family that took centre stage for this happy portrait after his christening.

R. Vaughan Williams" "Prelude on "Rhosymedre'" was played as the family enters the Chapel Royal; this song was played at William and Catherine's wedding and the 1981 wedding of Louis's grandparents, the Prince and Princess of Wales.

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall also took their places behind the young family, and Harry and Megan also posed for the first official portraits since their marriage two months ago.

A third group shot also includes the Middleton family, with Kate's parents, Michael and Carole, sister Pippa and her husband James Matthews and brother James Middleton.

France and Croatia named unchanged line-ups for final
His France side, spearheaded by 19-year-old forward Kylian Mbappe and the more seasoned Antoine Griezmann , are the favourites. Croatia starts Dejan Lovren and Domagoj Vida in central defence, with Sime Vrsaljko on the right and Ivan Strinic on the left.

The ex-actress can be seen standing in between Harry and Camilla while beaming widely.

On the sofa, William has a protective arm around George - who will be five next Sunday - while cheeky Charlotte stares challengingly at the camera as if plotting her next piece of mischief.

Royal photographer Matt Holyoak was picked to capture the precious moments between the family. George is by now sitting on his father's lap and grinning happily at the camera, presumably at some behind-the-scenes antics.

"Everyone was so relaxed and in such good spirits, it was an absolute pleasure".

He said he hoped he had captured the "joy" of the christening in his photos.

The Duchess of Cambridge looked completely elated and gazed at Louis who was dressed in a replica of the gown commissioned by Queen Victoria for the christening of her daughter, Victoria, in 1841.

Although Louis was the guest of honour on the day, it's hard to ignore the chubby-cheeked charm of his older siblings Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, three.
