Little Louis was only just born, but he's already striking poses with big sis Princess Charlotte!
In photos snapped over the past week, the children of Prince William and Kate Middleton are seen in two adorable portraits, one showing an alert Louis solo and one capturing Charlotte — who turned 3 the day the picture was taken — lovingly planting a kiss on Louis' little forehead.
The image of Louis was taken just three days after his birth, People magazine reports.
The photos, taken by Kate herself at the family's Kensington Palace home, took royal watchers by surprise; most royal baby portraits materialize about a month after the child's birth.
In a statement accompanying the photographs, Kensington Palace said, "Their Royal Highnesses would like to thank members of the public for all of the kind messages they have received following the birth of Prince Louis, and for Princess Charlotte’s third birthday."
