The pictures made public Thursday were taken by well-known photographer Mario Testino after Charlotte was baptized on Sunday. A spokesman for William and Kate said they are "very happy to share these photographs and hope that everyone enjoys them as much as they do."

The photos include a family portrait with Queen Elizabeth II at her Sandringham estate.

Kate's parents and her brother and sister are also in the photograph.
