Kate Middleon Cradles Prince Louis in Rare (and Adorable!) Photo of Son

by at .

Brace yourselves, celebrity gossip lovers.

It's about to get really doggone cute in here!

Kate Middleton and Prince William Smile Big

For the first time since the christening of Prince William and Kate Middleton's third child in July, a new photo of the six-month-old Royal Baby has been released to the public.

In the image down below - which has gone viral for very understandable and adorable reasons - little Louis grabs hold of the hand of his grandfather, Prince Charles.

The scene first appeared in the BBC One documentary, Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70.

As you're about to see, Middleton is all smiles in a navy-and-white polka-dot dress as she cradles a baby who looks to have much darker hair than siblings George and Charlotte.

This isn't the clearest image of Louis himself, of course, but we'll take what we can get when it comes to this special cutie...

Prince Louis and Charles

Kate and William are arguably the most famous parents on the planet.

They welcomed Prince George on July 22, 2013 and then his sister on May 2, 2015.

Louis then entered this familial picture on April 23 of this year.

We're not about to compare the children or anything, but it does look like each was blessed with a pair of very pinch-worthy cheeks.

In the aforementioned documentary, meanwhile, William talks openly his father, stating that Prince Charles is “brilliant” with his grandchildren.

It's an unusual glimpse into the most fascinating and often-discussed family in the world.

At one point in the special, William also says he wishes that his dad would slow down enough to be able to spare more time for them.

“It’s something I’m working more heavily on, put it that way,” Williamt tells BBC One this week, adding:

“I think he does have time for it, but I would like him to have more time with the children.”

All Smiles

Charles' wife, Camilla, also chimed in on this topic.

She said the following about her husband and how he acts with the young people close in his life:

“He will get down on his knees and crawl about with them for hours, you know making funny noises and laughing and my grandchildren adore him, absolutely adore him.

“He reads Harry Potter and he can do all the different voices and I think children really appreciate that."

And Baby Makes Three

On a related note, Charles is about to become a grandfather for the fourth time because Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will welcome their first kid in the spring.

(It's true! Meghan Markle is pregnant! Just in case you hadn't heard somehow.)

We don't know whether Meghan and Harry will have a boy or a girl, but we hear she is due on May 2, 2019.

Indeed, that would mean she would share a birthday with cousin Charlotte.

How cool would that be?!?
