Kate Middleton totally just took her feud with Meghan Markle to a brand new and vicious level.
Mere days before the Duchess of Sussex is expected to give birth, her alleged rival has released a series of new photos that have stolen all the Royal Child headlines.
They feature Prince Louis on the occasion of his first birthday and they are just so gosh darn precious -- we can hardly handle it!
We're mostly kidding about Middleton and Prince William unveiling these photos just to show up Harry and Meghan...
... but we are VERY serious about how cute Louis is as a toddler.
Scroll down to see for yourself:
I'm One Year Old!
Holy cuteness! Prince Louis is reaching out for his mother in this first of three brand new photos, released in April of 2019.
The Whole Tooth
Look at that tooth, folks! We cannot get enough of this positively precious child and grin.
The Serious Prince
It's time to get serious here for Prince Louis. Seriously cute and amazingly handsome, that is!
When Did We Last See Louis?
On the Royal Christmas Card, released right around the holidays by his very famous family.
And Before That?
Louis was part of this snapshot, shared with the world on the occasion of his grandfather's birthday last November. He's posing with Camilla Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Willliam Duke of Cambridge, Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Harry Duke of Sussex and Meghan Duchess of Sussex.
Playing with Gramps
Cameras also caught Louis playing with Prince Charles in this precious and sort of candid photo in late 2018.
And Before This Photo Shoot?
Now we're all the way back to July of 2018 for photos from Louis' Christening. Ready for an overload of cuteness?!?
The Perfect Photo
Also from the young prince's Christening, we're not sure if pictures get any more precious than this one.
With the Fam
Louis was surrounded by his loved ones in this photo from that very same Christening.
Kate, William and all three of their beloved children are featured in this professional snapshot.
On His Literal Birthday
Mere hours after entering the world, Louis was hauled out for the world to see, as he and his parents posed for some photos on the hospital steps.
He's In There, We Swear
What a tiny bundle of joy, huh?
A Lot Can Happen Over a Year, Can't It?
From this very little guy to a full-on toddler now -- with two teeth!
What About Prince George at a Year?
This now-five-year-old was taken to a buttery fly garden for his turn in the photograph spotlight on the occasion of his first birthday.
We Love the Overalls
They. Are. AMAZING.
And Sister Charlotte?
The middle Royal Child turned a year old in July of 2016. What a cutie!
Happy Birthday to Me!
We're always grateful to the folks at Kensington Palace for giving us such gorgeous glimpses at these children on their milestone first birthday.
Here's One More!
We hope she stays this innocent forever.
They Got Next
And now the world waits, as Meghan and Harry are expected to welcome their first-ever son or daughter into the world any day now. Can't wait to see the photos!
