Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince George are pictured in the second official christening picture

Kate Middleton beams at a smiling Prince George in the second official christening portrait

Kate Middleton is positively beaming in another christening photograph that has been released of the Royal parents and Prince George.

Jason Bell captured the beautiful photograph of Kate smiling at her baby son, with Prince George responding in kind with a giant grin of his own.

The young prince had been looking less than impressed in some of the images taken of the christening, but it's clear from this photo that baby George was enjoying himself with his doting parents.

Meanwhile, Prince William looks more serious in the picture, as he gazes lovingly at his son and future heir to the throne.

This intimate photo of the young family is more relaxed than the formal portrait of Jason Bell took of all the Royals and Middletons together. The first official photo that was released last week showed the Queen with three future kings, which was the first of its kind in 120 years.

Speaking about the christening at a gala event Kate Middleton attended at Kensington Palace last week, she said: 'It went very well. It was a very emotional and a lovely day.'

This photograph certainly captures that sentiment, and it's clear the young parents are besotted with their three-month old. We can absolutely see why...
