PRINCE GEORGE

A list of royal babies without this little British prince would be irrelevant. The three-year-old prince has been growing up before our very eyes and will be attending a new prep school in London at the start of September. We’ve seen him on royal tours with his parents and younger sister and he’s been charming everyone from Barack Obama to Justin Trudeau. It’s hard not to love this cheeky tot.

PRINCESS CHARLOTTE


The soon-to-be two-year-old is fourth in line to succeed her lookalike, Queen Elizabeth II. We’ve already seen so much attitude from Prince William’s only daughter. Her mother has already revealed that she’s the “boss of the house” despite being the youngest in the family. She might be cute, but the Duchess of Cambridge tells People, “She has got quite a feisty side!”

MIA TINDALL


Many will remember Mia Tindall as the little girl dutifully carrying her great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth’s purse in the monarch’s 90th birthday portrait. Mia remains the only daughter of Zara Tindall—Princess Anne’s daughter—with husband Mike.

STEFANO ERCOLE MARIO OF MONACO

The infant prince is the first child of Pierre Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo after their fairly recent marriage in 2015. Not much is known about the young prince, who was born on February 28. We’ve yet to see photos of him, but as the great-grandson of Grace Kelly, he’s sure to be irresistible.

PRINCE JACQUES AND PRINCESS GABRIELLA OF MONACO


One the other side of the family tree, twins Gabriella and Jacques are the cousins of Pierre Casiraghi. Son and daughter of reigning monarch Prince Albert II and Charlene, Princess of Monaco, the pair turned two last December. Although Princess Gabriella was born two minutes before her brother, Prince Jacques is the heir apparent to the Monegasque throne.

PRINCE JIGME OF BHUTAN

The Kingdom of Bhutan, its King Jigme Singye and his wife Queen Jetsun Pema were beyond thrilled to welcome the latest addition to their royal family. Prince Jigme Namgyel Wangchuk arrived on February 5, 2016, and has since made many adorable public appearances. The little prince is also said to be a carbon copy of his dad.

PRINCE ALEXANDER OF SWEDEN

The firstborn of Prince Carl Philip of Sweden and Princess Sofia has been stealing the show ever since his christening. He’s not made that many high-profile appearances yet, but lately he’s been spotted sporting the cutest baby teeth just as Princess Sofia announced her second pregnancy. The coming of the next Swedish royal affirms the boom in the number of Swedish royal babies as three of King Carl XVI’s children have all had children in the past two years.

PRINCE OSCAR OF SWEDEN

The second child of Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel, Prince Oscar is Princess Estelle’s younger brother and third in line to the throne. The siblings showed up at their cousin Prince Alexander’s christening along with the rest of the Swedish royal family.

PRINCE NICOLAS OF SWEDEN

A post shared by Kungahuset (@kungahuset) on


Like her elder sister, Princess Madeleine of Sweden has two children: Princess Leonore and Prince Nicolas. The younger child was born just five days after his mother’s 34th birthday. The one-year-old has already shown his support for the country’s women’s football team, with her mother sharing a photo of her son sporting the national colors. Will this prince become the next Swedish representative at the Olympics? We’d like to think so.
