The Look Of Love: Prince George's Christening Photo

We couldn't resist sharing this newly released official portrait of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their son, Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge, following his christening on Wednesday, October 23.

Yes, we know you've seen a few now - but isn't this one lovely? Three-month-old Prince George returns his mother's look of adoration with a giggle as Prince William looks on proudly and protectively.

The intimate portrait shows their close family bond - far more evocative than the stiff line ups of usual official Royal portraits, including one of the other released photos (see below), showing the Royal family and Middleton clan arranged around Prince George.

Photographer Jason Bell, 44, has previously worked with Scarlett Johansson, Kate Winslet and David Beckham.

The photo was taken following the royal christening at a tea at Clarence House, an intimate affair to which only 22 guests were invited, including the seven godparents.
