In the most intimate picture, the Duchess of Cambridge poses with Prince Louis in the gardens of Clarence House.

A statement released by the royal family also revealed Louis' Godparents were Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, Laura Meade, Robert Carter and Lucy Middleton.

One woman added, "I would love to see a video of the lengths the photographer had to go to for the photos with the children!"

This is not the first time that Mr Porteous, a former Les Quennevais School pupil, has taken pictures of the Royal Family.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a dress by designer Alexander McQueen, the same designer she's worn for each of her children's christenings, and a hat by Jane Taylor.

After the ceremony, the baby prince looked content and adorable as he wiggled his fingers at his smiling mum.
