While it may seem like the world is on #RoyalWeddingWatch with the upcoming nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, there’s one little royal the world has been eagerly waiting to see for the very first time. Kensington Palace recently released the first photo of Prince Louis, and it’s every bit as adorable as you would imagine.

Kate Middleton might be a Duchess, but she’s also a real mom—kind of like us. (Okay, so that “kind of” might be stretching it a bit.) But the new mum does seem to enjoy snapping pics of her completely cute kiddos. She memorably took the first official photos of daughter Charlotte, and now she’s back at it again. The first royal pics of Prince Louis were, once again, taken by his ever-loving mama.

The official baby photos feature one single picture of the little Prince (at just a few days old) and a super-sweet sibling scene with big sis Princess Charlotte. The photo of Prince Louis, looking extraordinarily regal for a baby who was only a few days old at the time of the pic, was taken at Kensington Palace on Apr. 26, just three days after the royal baby was born. The second photo, of the young Prince and his sister Charlotte, was taken on the Princess’s birthday, May 2.

Ever since the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined social media in TK, the world has been treated to a whole host of sweet pics of the royal family—and we can’t wait for even more ‘grams of the newest member of the royal family.
