The Duchess never disappoints!

Monday was a big day for the Cambridges – not only was it the christening of the newest member of the family, Prince Louis, but it was also the first time the family of five were seen all together for the first time. The family were all smiles as they arrived at St James' Palace for the private ceremony in the Chapel Royal. Kate looked gorgeously elegant in a cream dress by one of her favourite designers Alexander McQueen which she teamed with hat by Jane Taylor. She wore her glossy chestnut hair in her trademark blowdried waves tied back and kept to her go-to makeup look of softly defined eyes, pink lips and fresh skin. Her children, who entered the chapel alongside her and husband Prince William, looked adorable as always – Princess Charlotte wore a sky blue dress and Prince George sported a short-sleeved white shirt and navy blue shorts.

Eleven-week-old Louis is set to wear the same christening gown used by his siblings. The cream lace and white satin robe is a replica of the outfit made for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter in 1841, which is now too delicate to be worn. The new version was made by the Queen's dresser, Angela Kelly.
