Now almost a month old, His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge, a.k.a. the Royal Baby, is back for a second round of pictures.
The Royal Baby photos released one day after his birth July 22 were very special, but the world has eagerly awaited more ever since. Now the wait is over.
And it was worth it. Here's young George with his glowing, proud parents:
Aww. Honestly, what's not to love about this couple and their new addition?
Prince William and Kate Middleton may not be getting a lot of sleep, but you wouldn't know it from this shot of the happy couple with their little son.

Oh, and that's Tilly, a retriever and Middleton family pet, on the left.
Eschewing a formal shoot with a professional photographer, the royals' latest pics were taken in early August by none other than Kate's father, Michael Middleton.
The location? His home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, UK.
"William and Catherine wanted to release photos that are more natural and personable, something more intimate," a Palace aide says of the shots.
Kate is looking especially radiant in a fuchsia knot front maternity dress by Seraphine as she holds little George, who was "very peaceful" during the shoot.
From the sound of it, that's not exactly a given with him.
William said in his first interview since becoming a dad that the "rascal" isn't sleeping too much, but that Kate Middleton is "doing a fantastic job."
We have little doubt. Congrats again, Will and Kate!
