In celebration of Prince Charles’ 70th birthday the royal family sat down for a fab photo session. Even though the eldest Prince was the center of the pic, he didn’t exactly steal the show. With the release of the official portraits, the internet just couldn’t get enough at the sweet, smiley and semi-candid photo.

Okay, so the royal family released two versions of the portrait—making the viewing experience even more interesting. The official pic is perfectly posed with everyone, including the oh-so-cute kiddos, maintaining a very royal demeanor. But Clarence House also posted a not-so-serious version.

The second pic features Prince George laughing while sitting on his grandpa’s knee. Sure, his grandfather is heir to the throne. But that didn’t seem to stop young George from giggling away. Likewise, Princess Charlotte also looks adorably relaxed. Cuddled under the arm of the Duchess of Cornwall, the preschooler sweetly smiles as Camilla points to something in the distance.

Oh, but the kiddos aren’t the only ones who are looking kind of casual (at least, for a royal portrait). Mum-to-be Meghan Markle is pictured leaning in towards her new family as she giggles, too!

Wait. That’s not all. Prince Charles’ birthday portrait also features the youngest royal, Prince Louis. Nestled in his mum’s arms, Louis is an undeniable cutie! And seriously, how is he already so big?
