Princess Charming: First official pictures of baby Charlotte's christening on Sunday.

Prince George plays with his hair as the family of four pose for their first official snap together - one of four that the royal couple chose to release from the special day

A Kensington Palace spokesman said: '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. 
They are very happy to share these photographs and hope that everyone enjoys them as much as they do.'
The first official pictures of baby Charlotte's christening - taken by Diana's favourite photographer Mario Testino - have been released.

Commenting on his historic commission, Testino told the Mail: 'Photographing Princess Charlotte's christening was an amazing experience. What impressed me the most was the energy of the family, and of that between the Duke and Duchess. One sees how solid they are together and one gets a sense of their strong family values. 'It was incredible to be able to document four generations of the British Royal Family together – the monarch and three heirs to the throne – and very heart-warming to see the close relationship between them all.' 

The service was officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, The Most Rev Justin Welby, and the local rector, the Reverend Jonathan Riviere. Little George kept crowds entertained and was seen chatting to his great-grandmother, the Queen


'I am overwhelmed and honoured to be chosen to document this occasion and to carry on the documentation of the family that is the soul of this country, a country that has given me.'
Although one of the most highly regarded men in his field, Testino was a surprise choice for such an auspicious and formal occasion, although he has long been a private favourite of the Royal Family.

George wore an £85 Rachel Riley outfit comprised of red shorts and a smocked shirt to his little sister's Christening   The toddler entertained the 3,500-strong crowd with his antics, adorably peeping into his sister's pram, right, and attempting to run off into the churchyard

He famously shot Princess Diana's last playful and iconic fashion shoot for Vanity Fair magazine just two months before she died, and counted her as a personal friend.
In recent years he has also photographed Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall and Princes William and Harry, playfully capturing the two brothers relaxed and dressed in just jeans and white shirts.
He also took the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's official engagement portrait, another remarkably informal picture by royal standards, showing the couple smiling and hugging with Diana's famous engagement ring on show.
The 60-year-old Peruvian, who is a major anglophile, flew up to the monarch's private country estate by helicopter on Sunday to capture the images, according to one well-placed royal source, to set up the shoot.
