A Kiss for Prince Louis: Adorable Portraits of Louis & Charlotte Released!

In an unexpected treat for royal fans the first official portraits of Prince Louis have been released by Kensington Palace in time for the Sunday papers. Even better, the photos include Charlotte. This image of big sister Charlotte, taken on her third birthday last Wednesday, giving the little Prince a kiss proved particularly popular. The Princess looks so grown up with her hair tied back!


We weren't expecting the first portraits for several weeks yet. It's wonderful to see little Louis.The second of the two photos depicts the baby dressed in white, it was taken on 26 April, when he was three days old. I've always felt George very much resembles both Michael Middleton and Prince William, whereas Charlotte is more and more like the Queen every day. It's obviously very early to tell, but I think Louis resembles his mother. What do you think?


As with the majority of photos of the Cambridge children, the Duchess took the images at Kensington Palace. During an engagement last year William revealed keen amateur photographer Kate takes photos of the children "every day". I'm sure she's amassed quite a collection and their personal family albums are bursting with snaps covering milestones and special days in George, Charlotte and now Louis' life.


Kensington Palace said:

'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. 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.'

Both George's and Charlotte's first official portraits were released roughly a month after their births. George's were taken by Mike Middleton and Charlotte's were taken at Anmer Hall by Kate. The outfit Louis wore looks almost identical to Charlotte's below. Upon closer inspection, the top at least is definitely not the same although the leggings very well may be.


The photo of Charlotte kissing Louis instantly reminded me of this...


Does Charlotte's sweater look familiar to you? Laura immediately noted it's actually the same piece George wore for the Annie Leibovitz portrait taken of Her Majesty with her two youngest grandchildren and great-grandchildren to mark her 90th birthday.


It is the £36 navy and white Fina Ejerique Wool Blend Knitted Cardigan.


It's an exciting time for the royal family as a whole. In just two weeks, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will marry at St George's Chapel. At a press briefing on Friday, Communications Secretary Jason Knauf confirmed Kate will be there whilst Prince William will be Best Man and it is very much expected George and Charlotte will take on the role of page boy and bridesmaid once again. Louis, who will be less than a month old, will not be going as expected.


It was a lovely surprise to see the photos. I'm very much looking forward to seeing the first photo of all three Cambridge children together in the future. No doubt several were taken at Charlotte's birthday, but I think the photo of the Princess very much doubled up as a belated birthday photo in addition to being a sweet brother/sister shot. A portrait of George with Charlotte and Louis would be a smashing idea for his 5th birthday. In the meantime, both of these images are simply darling!

  9. Yay! They're released! So sweet :) I'm glad they decided to share these. I don't believe George or Charlotte had pictures released so soon after birth. Very nice of them to share their loves with us. I bet Charlotte is all about her new role as big sister and mum and dad's helper!

    1. To me too. Very much so.

    2. Looks like the same outfit and probably has meaning for them as a family. Even Charlotte is wearing the sweater George wore for the picture with the Queen. Just a little insight to see Kate is like any other Mom and even her children can wear "repeats"!! cc

    3. 🌸 If you enlarge both the photo of Louis and then enlarge the photo of Princess Charlotte as a baby, the outfits are identical.

    How cute!!! As an amateur photographer myself, children and animals are the hardest to photograph. I imagine it took awhile for the perfect shot and Kate got it. I also like to imagine that their home is covered in personal family photos or artwork from the kids. I hope we see a photo of the 3 children together, if nothing else - we’ll probably get a family photo when he is christened.

  13. Very sweet :) I also think he resembles Kate, but I insist to this day that Charlotte is a mini Carol Middleton!!!

    1. Definitely a mini Carole! :-)

      Louis is a beautiful baby. What a nice surprise.

    2. I never realized how much Charlotte does look like Carole. This picture is so precious! And little Louis looks like a "little Louis". The name fits.

    3. Yes, I think she looks like Carole too.

      Delete
    4. I thought the same thing about Charlotte having a resemblance to Carole Middleton. George looks like Michael Middleton and I think Louis may favor Kate, at least for today!! Am sure they will change as will our opinions about who they resemble!! For sure William and Kate have beautiful babies, and Louis makes three!! cc

    5. She looks like the queen. I see 0% Carole Middleton.

    8. The gorgeous little Prince Louis is resembling Kate, while his elder brother, Prince George, is looking like Michael Middleton

      Delete
    9. A close look at the 90th birthday photo-portrait, (which I absolutely adore and thank-you, Miss Charlotte!) with Princess Charlotte on HM's lap, will reveal how much she resembles the Queen. Carole does not have the Windsor (Queen Mary) close-set eyes or the squarish versus oval-shaped jaw--she even mimics the Queen's facial expression-- a reflection, I think, of what we now see as Charlotte's emerging personality. Charlotte has the same color of hair as Carole; that's about it. Also same as Catherine's.
      George has the wide square jaw like Michael, but it also resembles Charles Spencer's. The eyes are completely different. The only similarity I can see between Michael and George is the teeth and mouth.
      How I see it, anyway. I think some of us want them to look like the royal side of the family and others don't.

    10. Seems twitter is abuzz with who Prince Louis looks like!! While not everybody agrees on who the children resemble, one thing they all seem to agree on is that Kate is a talented photographer who has captured precious moments with her beautiful children!! Very happy that she and William have shared them with us. Love the picture of Diana with Prince William and I hope that someone has captured a moment of Kate with her son!! cc

  14. Absolutely adorable. I’m sure the photos were published now because Harry’s wedding will be the main story when Louis turns one month old.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Adorable photos! I agree, the little prince looks much older than a newborn. I hope he eats well and sleeps a good portion of the night. Princess Charlotte looks so grown up. While she does remind me of the Queen, her silhouette in the above photo has a look that reminds me of her mother. Prince George also reminds me of Michael Middleton.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Charlotte is hugging her best birthday gift. Happy belated Birthday! Louis looks like he is looking beyond the horizon into the future; a wise looking baby. Was this photo of him really taken when he was three days old? He looks all grown and over several weeks young/old. He resembles Charlotte's baby photo. In the other photo, may be she sung for him for a nap. He is a cute and a gentlemanly baby. Excellent work Kate!

  17. 🌸 Both photos couldn’t be more perfect. And we do get a birthday photo of Princess Charlotte after all, a very special one. Very smart. Thank you Kate.❤️

  27. I'm so happy we got to see a birthday photo after all, and 2 new pictures of Louis! I'm not sure who I think Louis resembles yet. I must be in the minority, but I don't really see the resemblance between Charlotte and the Queen. With George, it's more set in stone for me and he's consistently looks the most like William and Michael Middleton, but Charlotte is different each time for me. The resemblances I've seen in Charlotte are Carole Middleton, Kate, Eugenie, and the Queen Mother.

    1. Yes, maybe the face shape of the Queen Mother with the Queen’s more serious expressions.

  31. These are adorable! I am so glad they released a pic of Louis, where we can really see him, not all bundled up in a car seat.

    And Charlotte! So sweet and precious. Good of Kate to get a pic now, while he’s new and special. Soon enough he will be taking her toys and driving Charlotte crazy as all little brothers tend to do! Personally, I love that her hair is back in a ponytail. It’s different than every other style we’ve seen and is less, fussy? or maybe formal? I like it. And I love that the kids totally wear hand me down clothes. Not in the ‘it’s a symbolic time we are evoking’ but in the ‘we have it, it fits, rewear it’. And maybe a cordoroy skirt and a blouse? Adorable, normal, and also shades of Gan Gan!

  34. Yes!!! I love the baby pictures! I knew there was a reason why they didn’t release a new pic of Charlotte for her birthday. They knew they were gonna release the beautiful snaps!

  37. This was so thoughtful of Kate to share photos of little Prince Louis so quickly. He certainly does look older than 3 days old. Those rosy cheeks, is that a Spencer trait. How appropriate to have him in same outfit as Charlotte. He is adorable. And such a precious photo of Charlotte and her baby brother in similar pose as George with his baby sister. Thank you Kate and William.

  38. Just the sweetest little dolls, love them both, what little angels, such blessings. I imagine the joy these children have brought to the family and I bet Harry has the best time with them and James as well. Bless William because he sure has a jewel in Kate, she must be the best kind of mom. Thank you Both for sharing the photos, my husband even commented how cute Louis is and noted how he is holding his little arms and hands sort of stiff and straight down- which all newborns do at times, well it just takes us back to when our son’s were just babies they did the same thing and you just can’t get enough kisses in!!

  44. Very sweet and delighted they were released when they were - to honour Charlotte as well as the new one and before the wedding sweeps all before it.

    I can't say Charlotte looks like anyone (other than herself) in this photo - but she did make thing a bit of the queen the other day. But so much change comes.

    The baby reminds me a lot of little Adrienne in the photo released at the same age or so.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I think that Charlotte's looks lean more Windsor – she looks like the female version (with some other minor differences, of course) of William. Prince George looks like Kate's dad. Prince Louis is Kate to the "T". I don't think that I have ever seen a newborn (3 days old) who looks so much like one of the parents. Louis has Kate's head shape, eyebrows, eyes (those eyes are undeniably Kate's), chubby cheeks (most evident in her university days), forehead and nose. Look at his profile (photo of Charlotte kissing him) and look at Kate at a young age. The semblance at such an earlier stage is staggering.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Kate certainly is a great photographer! She always captures such beautiful snaps that look so candid yet so sweet and thoughtful. Love love love!

    I giggled a bit when I saw that Charlotte wore George's sweater as it reminded me of my days wearing the so called "hand-me-downs" from my older brother. I like that Kate also dresses her kids so sensibly, it definitely saves a lot of pennies when buying unisex clothes for kids. We were taught that it simultaneously teaches kids to share with their siblings from an early age. Now I love William and Kate's parenting style even more :)

  51. What a lovely surprise from W&K releasing these beautiful photos ! My first thought seeing baby Louis, he looks exactly like Charlotte at the same age. When you look at Charlotte I think she is a mini Lady Sarah Chatto, and as such I think she's more a Windsor than a Middleton, and I think Louis, will be the same. Looking forward to seeing a photo of all three of these little munchkins together, if we're lucky, W&K will release a photo on George's birthday :-)
    Thank you Charlotte, what a lovely surprise it was, popping in here and seeing the post.

  52. What a lovely surprise and so appropriate to incorporate Charlotte's birthday and Prince Louis's birth together.
    This was a very new picture of Charlotte much better than some official birthday portrait which could well have been taken several weeks ago and Louis looked very alert for a 3 day old child it was good of Kate to share a photo of him so young he appeared to be a contented baby I agree with others who think these photos have been released now because of the forthcoming wedding but very much hope we may have photos of all three when George turns five and it would be nice if Kate releases more photos of the children during the year she takes such lovely photographs.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I think Charlotte looks very much like the Queen - it's funny how such a strong resemblance can sometimes appear after a couple of generations. It's so strong because it's not only her face but also her expressions and the way she looks at people. I love it! I also see a strong resemblance to William and her hair is all Kate.
    George looks a lot like Kate and Michael Middleton with a tiny bit of William thrown in. As for Louis, I find it very hard to tell with a child that small, so I'll comment on that at a later point.

    The picture of Charlotte an Louis is simply adorable!! I'm looking forward to seeing a picture of all 3 children together.

  59. Yes, they are adorable! I have always thought Charlotte looked like Carole, the squarish face. However, her expressions & general look resemble the Queen.

  70. These first photos of all their children are all beautiful! Thanks for posting all of them in one place, Charlotte!

    I actually think Prince Louis looks like Prince William as a baby! I saw a photo of them, side by side, and they look very similar! I think Prince George and Princess Charlotte are both a good mix of both sides of their families. You can see the Middleton/Windsors in each of them, which I love!

    I love that they combined Princess Charlottes birthday photos with Prince Louis' first photos. That was well-done and released before it was too close their uncles wedding! Also, I love how they re-wear all of their clothes. Well done, Will & Kate! It makes them seem a touch more normal.
