Baby Archie’s christening came yesterday as rumours of a “feud” between the ‘Fab Four’ continued to swirl - and royal fans believe the official photographs have done nothing to but those suggestions to bed.
They have pointed out that the eight-week-old’s uncle Prince William, 37, looks “sour” and “not amused” in one of two family portraits released yesterday, following the service at Windsor Castle.
Many claimed on Twitter that he looked as though he was “trying not to smirk”.
One person wrote: “William and his Aunts are not amused.”
Another commented: “I find it funny that Prince William is trying so hard not to smirk.”
A third shared: “William looks so sour in the face!”
Similarly, users felt Kate Middleton - who was seated in front of him - appeared “pained” and as though she “didn’t look thrilled to be there”.

William was stood beside his late mother Princess Diana’s sisters Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah McCorquodale in the image.
Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland was also in shot, as were Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.
The Duchess of Sussex wore a bespoke midi dress by Dior for the baptism - which she and the Duke announced earlier this week they were keeping private.
Her sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, opted for a pink pussy-bow dress by Stella McCartney with red courts and a matching headband.
Kate paid tribute to Diana by wearing a pair of her pearl earrings.
Another black and white portrait, also released by Harry and Meghan to their nine million followers on Instagram, was of the new parents with Archie in the Rose Garden.
The post has already garnered more than two million ‘likes’ and thousands of comments.
Part of the caption read: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son.
“They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment.”
The christening was attended by fewer than 30 guests, and the identities of Archie’s godparents have been kept secret.
