The garment is a handmade replica of the 1841 Royal Christening robe worn by more than 62 royal babies at their christenings - including those of Prince Louis' grandfather, father and uncle.

The informal shot comes from William and Kate's private photographs of the family celebration, but they liked it so much they made a decision to release it.

The little princess is staring lovingly at Prince Louis and, not only that, she's holding his hand as well! She topped things off with a blue bow-embellished headband.

As a babyhood picture of Kate taken in 1982 shows, Louis bears a striking resemblance to her. Prince George, 3-year-old Princess Charlotte, Kate's parents Michael and Carole, her brother James and sister Pippa were also in attendance.
