It’s a portrait worthy of a future queen.
Kensington Palace on Thursday released the first official photographs from the christening of Princess Charlotte, showcasing the newest addition to the British royal family in all her adorable glory.
The two-month-old princess was captured on camera by Princess Diana’s favourite photographer Mario Testino.
Four images released show Charlotte with her parents and big brother Prince George as well as the Queen, Philip, Charles, Camilla and the Middletons.
Kensington Palace said the family had a “wonderful day” and were “very happy to share these photographs and hope that everyone enjoys them as much as they do”.
