Prince Louis is all smiles with mom Kate Middleton in adorable new christening photo

Looks like Princess Charlotte may have some competition for the title of royal scene-stealer.

Her baby brother, the nearly 3-month-old Prince Louis, is melting hearts with the release of a bonus photo from his July 9 christening.

On Sunday the royal family revealed four family photos from the prince’s special day, and on Monday morning Kensington Palace shared one more for good measure. The latest photo, taken by photographer Matt Porteous, shows the baby flashing a huge grin while in the arms of his proud mother, Kate Middleton. If he learns to wave like his big sis, we’re all in trouble.


The adorable moment was captured in the garden of Clarence House. The duchess is seen wearing a white outfit by her go-to label, Alexander McQueen, while little Louis’s royal christening robe is made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin. It’s a replica of the gown Queen Victoria had commissioned for her oldest daughter, Victoria, in 1841, which was worn by royal babies until 2008.
