The Palace Releases Photo of Prince Louis and He’s Too Cute

Prince Charles

For the first time since Louis’ royal christening in July, a new photo of the 6-month-old royal baby has been released with Prince Charles.

William and Kate are notoriously and understandably private about their children, but now that Louis is getting bigger, they decided to release a photo of him as part of a new documentary on Prince Charles.

Getty Images’ royal photographer Chris Jackson captured an intimate moment in which Prince Charles cooed over his youngest grandchild while chatting with the Duchess of Cambridge. (Kate wore the same Alessandra Rich dress Abigail Spencer wore to the royal wedding in May.)

The picture was taken in the gardens of Charles’ London home, Clarence House, in September. Nestled in his mother’s arms, Louis wore a white dressing gown for his rare public appearance.

Louis grabs hold of his grandfather, Prince Charles‘ hand in the sweet photo, which appeared in the BBC One documentary, Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70.
