Princess Charlotte's official christening shots have been released

And naturally they’re lovely. These people are photogenic.

PRINCESS CHARLOTTE, THE second child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (or Kate and Wills if you prefer) was christened last Sunday, and the Royal Family have released four official shots of what went on.

The actual ceremony itself was a private one, at the Church of St Mary Magdalene on the Queen’s Sandringham estate.

The photos were taken by Peruvian photographer Mario Testino. It’s the first time he has pictured the Queen, although he is well-known for having pictured William’s mother Diana in times past.

Charlotte is the fourth in line to the English throne as things stand.

“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,” a spokesman for Kensington Palace said in a statement.

They are very happy to share these photographs and hope that everyone enjoys them as much as they do.
