Official royal christening portraitThey're here. They're here. They're finally here! The royal family sat down for official portraits after Prince George Louis Alexander's christening! The historic photos bring together Kate Middleton's family and Prince William's, not to mention offering the best look at the royal baby's delicate little face yet.

According to a statement from the palace, the four formal photos were taken by Jason Bell immediately following Prince George’s baptism in the Chapel Royal, St. James’s Palace.

It's hard to say what the best part of the photos is. Is it Prince George's adorable reaction to the camera? He actually hams it up! Or is spotting the Queen gazing adoringly at her great-grandson rather than keeping a stiff upper lip and looking at the camera?

Either way, these are photos that the baby royal will surely treasure in years to come, when he can look back at how all the members of his family came together for his special day.

Check out the Queen in number four! What do you think she was thinking?
