    Both Clarence House and Kensington Palace have shared new official portraits of the royal family to celebrate Prince Charles’ 70th birthday this week.

    The two photographs in question feature the Prince of Wales and his family, with Charles and Camilla sat on a wooden bench in the garden of their Clarence House home, surrounded by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and of course their grandchildren – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

    Already bearing such similar features to his stunning mum, we can tell that we’re going to be ooh-ing and aah-ing over the next adorable pics of little Louis to be released over the coming years.
