Prince Louis Adorably Steals the Show in New Photos Released for Prince Charles's 70th Birthday
Prince Charles's birthday celebrations show no sign of slowing down. Just a few days after the banquet thrown in his honor at Buckingham Palace, a new series of portraits of Charles has been released. Highlights of the previously never-before-seen images, which were taken by Getty royal photographer Chris Jackson, include some adorable photos of Charles playing with his youngest grandchild, Prince Louis, as well as some snaps of Charles presumably feeding the chickens, laughing with his sister Princess Anne, and strolling alongside his mother, the Queen, in Buckingham Palace.
"I’ve spent much of the last year documenting some intimate and ‘behind the scenes’ moments with The Prince of Wales to celebrate his 70th Birthday," Jackson wrote on Instagram about the series. "It really has been an incredible privilege to create such a unique set of images and a huge amount of fun at the same time."
Read on for the photos, which are part of a set to mark His Royal Highness’s 70th birthday.
