Earlier today, Kensington Palace graced the world with the beautiful official portraits from Prince Louis’ christening, last week. Moments ago, the Palace released one more photograph on behalf of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and it is quite possibly the sweetest, most adorable thing you’ll see this week.
The fifth in line to the throne, full title *gulps air* His Royal Highness Prince Louis Of Cambridge is looking extremely pleased with himself and my heart is melting.
The royal tweet was captioned “The Duke and Duchess hope that everyone enjoys this lovely photograph of Prince Louis as much as they do.”

Look at that SMILE.
Also, Kate looks stunning.
Prince Louis Arthur Charles was born back in late April.
Unlike the official portraits taken by Matt Holyoak, this moment was captured by photographer Matt Porteous.
You can see the rest of the photos via the Kensington Palace Twitter account featuring Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Prince Charles and Camilla and Kate’s family including Carole and Michael Middleton, James Middleton, Pippa Middleton and her husband, James Matthews.
And of course, we can’t forget little three-year-old Princess Charlotte and sassy Prince George.

Sassy Prince George winning hearts and minds at the tender age of four.
Holyoak said he was “truly honoured at being asked to take the official photographs at the christening of Prince Louis, and to witness first hand such a happy event.”
Last year, Holyoak was also selected to photograph the official portraits for Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip’s 70th wedding anniversary.
The Press Association understand the Queen and Prince Philip chose to miss the christening, a decision that was not based on health:
