Be still our hearts! Kensington Palace just released some photos from Prince Louis's christening last week, and we cannot stop staring at this perfect and adorable family. The photos were taken by photographer Matt Holyoak, who has photographed the royal family before, and it's obvious that whole family is already in love with this little guy. 

  • Kate practically radiated joy in a white Alexander McQueen dress while holding her third child. 

    The littlest prince wore a handmade replica of an 1841 Royal Christening Robe, but look at his sweet little face! We love how he's clinging to his mama here, and Kate looks equally enamored with him. 

    The christening is taking place in the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace by The Archbishop of Canterbury, the same place where Meghan Markle was baptized into the Church of England before her May wedding with Prince Harry.

  • The family of five looked very dapper for the occasion.

    We can't decide what to love most about this photo -- the way Kate is looking at Louis, Prince William's beaming grin, Charlotte holding onto her mom's skirt and baby brother's gown, or How grown up Prince George is looking at nearly five years ol. 

  • We love this "modern family" photo as well.

    Especially knowing that a photo like this wouldn't have been possible decades ago, because this royal family would've been impossible, between Prince Charles's second wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and Meghan Markle, American divorce and now the Duchess of Sussex. In this picture though -- they're just family. 

  • Kate's side of the family was there too, of course.

    The party may have been held at Charles and Camilla's home at Clarance House, but that doesn't mean the Middleton's weren't invited to the party! Kate and Will held a small reception and Grandpa Charles's home, where the served slices of their 2011 wedding cake, per tradition. 

    Prince William's immediate family is pictured here with Carole and Michael Middleton, as well as Pippa Middleton and her husband James Matthews, and their brother James Middleton

    Prince Louis is one very loved little boy. We'll just be over here living these photos, because they're just precious.
