The royal family have another little heir to the throne following the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s third child, Prince Louis Arthur Charles. Here we look at the cute pics which make up Prince Louis’ royal baby album so far...
The world got their first glimpse at the newborn that very same day when Prince William and Kate Middleton emerged from the hospital to introduce the new addition to the royal family to the world.
Wrapped in a white blanket and wearing a matching hat, little Prince Louis looked adorable as his proud parents waved to the world’s media.
Kate, 36, looked radiant in a red dress and nude heels – despite having given birth just hours earlier.
Two weeks after his birth, Kensington Palace released two official pictures of Prince Louis with his sister Princess Charlotte.
Once again, the newborn was dressed all in white for his first proper portrait as he’s propped up against a white cushion.
In the second snap, Prince Louis can be seen sleeping as his big sister holds him and gently kisses his forehead.
The cute pictures were taken by the Duchess of Cambridge on May 2, which was Princess Charlotte’s third birthday.
The Palace captioned the images: ‘The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share two photographs of Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, taken by The Duchess at Kensington Palace.
‘This image was taken on 2nd May, on Princess Charlotte’s third Birthday. The Duke and Duchess would like to thank members of the public for their kind messages following the birth of Prince Louis, and for Princess Charlotte’s third birthday.’
Prince Louis is fifth in the line of succession to the British throne, behind his grandfather Prince Charles, father Prince William and older siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
