The longest-serving heir apparent in British history, the Prince of Wales celebrated his 70th birthday this week. Ahead of the celebrations the palace has been releasing photos of the royal family the whole week.
At the beginning of the week they shared images where you can see the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The Duchess of Sussex looks stunning in a black and white midi dress, followed by the Duchess of Cornwall who is also wearing a white outfit. The rest of the family is matching in blue. Prince George laughs on Prince Charles’s knee, as the Duchess of Cornwall points something out to Princess Charlotte. Meghan leans forward, laughing.
Today the royal family shared more photos from the same shoot and it’s safe to say that they are cuteness overload!
Chris Jackson, who has photographed the royal family for more than 15 years, had exclusive access to the prince over the past year, capturing him at work and occasional rest. We think we might have found the picture of Louis we’ve been waiting for!
In a sweet shot of just the two of them, you can see Prince Louis can be seen grabbing grandfather Prince Charles’ face. Prince Charles and Prince Louis both laugh as they have their photo taken, and it’s clear they have a special bond:
The photographer shared the cover photo for The Sunday Times Magazine on Instagram and captioned the image: “I’ve spent much of the last year documenting some intimate and ‘behind the scenes’ moments with The Prince of Wales to celebrate his 70th Birthday – It really has been an incredible privilege to create such a unique set of images and a huge amount of fun at the same time.”
Last week in the new BBC documentary about the Prince of Wales we got to see the first before photo of the youngest member of the royal family – Prince Louis since the christening. We all know that Kate and William are very private when it comes to their children, but now that Louis is getting bigger they decided to release a new photo of him and it cannot be more adorable!
Royal correspondent Rebecca English reports that the photo was taken by royal photographer Chris Jackson in September in the gardens of Clarence House, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall’s official residence. Prince Louis wears a white shirt and little baby blue shorts as he plays with his grandfather the Prince of Wales.
The last time we saw the whole family together was the Prince Lous’s christening in July.
