Prince Louis was born less than two weeks ago, but he already has two official royal portraits. Kensington Palace released photos of its newest member this evening, via Twitter along with two statements.


"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," reads the first statement.

And the second photo was captioned, "This image of Prince Louis was taken by The Duchess of Cambridge at Kensington Palace on 26th April. 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."

The sweet snapshots were taken by new mom Duchess Kate, who is a photographer in her own right, and studied art history while at St. Andrews, no doubt cultivating a skilled eye.

Similar photos of Prince George and Princess Charlotte were released shortly after their births, as is tradition.

Here is one released in August 2013 of the new family of three. The candid was captured by new grandpa Michael Middleton.

Shortly after Charlotte was born, Kensington Palace shared a few portraits of the newborn princess with her older brother George. Here is a particularly cute one:


This might be the only photo we get of little Louis for a few weeks. While his older siblings George and Charlotte have confirmed roles in their uncle Harry's upcoming wedding to Meghan Markle, the new royal baby will not be in attendance, given that he'll only be four weeks old.

That said, there is a chance we'll see him up on the balcony come Saturday June 9, for the Trooping of the Colour parade, in honor of the Queen's birthday. Trooping the Colour is one of the rare moments when we see the whole royal family up on the Buckingham Palace balcony, and while Kate will technically still be on maternity leave, there's a chance she'll give the public another look at her newborn baby boy.
