Queen Elizabeth did make it to Prince Louis' official christening photos in sneakiest way possible
If you thought the Queen was going to miss the chance of being in the christening pictures of her grandson, you might want to think again.
Queen Elizabeth may not have been present in Prince Louis christening but that does not mean she will not make it to the official portraits from the ceremony. Knowingly or unknowingly, Queen Elizabeth did make it to the picture. If you look closely at the picture, there is a photo frame hanging in the background and it happens to be of none other than the Queen herself.
As reported by People, a portrait of Queen, painted by Michael Noakes hangs behind the members of the royal family in the Morning Room at Clarence House. It is almost like the picture also knows where the camera is and where to look at. Call it coincidence, it is good to see that the Queen could be present in her grandson's pictures.
The news about Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth not attending Prince Louis' christening surprised the royal fans. However, it was later noted that the two could not attend the ceremony due to their commitments. The royal family decided to share five pictures from Prince Louis' christening. The photographs were taken by Matt Holyoak at Clarence House, following Prince Louis's christening, the palace announced.
Wearing a handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, made by Angela Kelly, Dressmaker to The Queen for the ceremony, Prince Louis slept throughout the ceremony as he was nestled in the arms of his mother. At first, the palace released four pictures from the ceremony which showed the royal family members and an image of Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge looking at Prince Louis lovingly.
Later, the palace released yet another picture, this time, a candid shot of Prince Louis and Meghan Markle. "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have released an additional photograph taken following the christening of Prince Louis.
The Duke and Duchess hope that everyone enjoys this lovely photograph of Prince Louis as much as they do," noted the palace. People were quick to comment on how adorable the picture looked.
"Thank you for sharing your family photos. They are truly beautiful. Kate, Princess Diana would be very proud of William and the family he has. She is looking down on all of you. God bless," one fan wrote, while another added, "Omg. My heart! This is too precious. This is now one of my top favorite pictures of the Cambridge children."
Prince Louis' christening took place on Monday (July 9) at The Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace. For the first time, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were seen with their family of five. Prince Louis is the third child of Prince William, and Kate Middleton and is fifth in line to the throne.
The guest list for the ceremony included The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Mr and Mrs Michael Middleton, Mr and Mrs James Matthews, and Mr James Middleton. The palace also announced that Prince William and Kate Middleton had chosen six people to be named as godparents of Prince Louis. All of them are close friends or family members of Kate Middleton. The following people have been chosen to be the godparents — Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, The Lady Laura Meade, Mrs Robert Carter, and Lucy Middleton.
