His royal cuteness: First official pictures of Britain's Prince Louis
Britain's royal family released the first two official photographs of newly-born Prince Louis on Sunday (May 6).
The first photograph, which the palace said was taken on April 26, shows Louis propped up against a white cushion, adorable in a white jumper and trousers.

Both the photographs were taken at Kensington Palace by Kate, the children's mother and wife of Prince William, Queen Elizabeth's grandson.
Louis, who is fifth in line to the British throne, was born on April 23 weighing 8lbs 7oz (3.83 kg).
Due to a 2013 change in the law, Charlotte is the first British princess for whom the arrival of a younger brother does not mean being demoted down the line of succession.
Louis would not join the rest of his family at the May 19 wedding of his uncle, Prince Harry, to US actress Meghan Markle, palace officials said.
