Ahead of the arrival of William and Kate's third child, join us as we look back on their cutest moments as a family of four...

The Cambridges are about to become a family of five, with Kate and William's third child due any day now.

It's hard to believe that the original royal sweethearts' wedding was a whole seven years ago now, having taken place on the 29th April 2011 at Westminster Abbey. Fans all over the world tuned in to watch the proceedings, including that kiss on the balcony.

Their second child Princess Charlotte will turn three shortly after her younger sibling is born. It's likely that the new baby's christening will be a similar affair; Charlotte's was held at the Church of St Mary Magdelene in front of just 21 guests, and saw her wear the same silk and lace christening gown that George wore for his baptism.

We're still gawping over Mario Testino's stunning, intimate photos of the event - especially the candid shot of the Duchess of Cambridge gazing adoringly at her baby girl.

Meanwhile Prince George, the oldest of the bunch, will turn five this year – it's hard to believe it's been that long since we were all waiting for the first glimpse of William and Kate's first child outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital, London.

However, a lot of the pictures of both George and Charlotte are in fact taken by Kate herself. From the picture released for Charlotte's second birthday to adorable shots of George holding his sister as a tiny baby, it's refreshing to see family snaps taken by their mum.

Of course, the family photo albums will only continue to grow, especially once William and Kate's third child is welcomed into the world later this month.

So, while we wait with bated breath for the first snaps of the newborn, join us as we take a look back on the best snaps of the Cambridge family so far...

Meanwhile, arguably the most adorable pictures of Prince George have been released of the evening he stayed up way past his bedtime to meet Barack and Michelle Obama wearing silk PJs and a monogrammed dressing gown. Said dressing gown has now completely sold out, naturally, proving Prince George to be a pretty powerful style icon on the kidswear scene already. Too. Much. To. Handle.

The official Twitter account for the family - @KensingtonRoyal - shared these adorable family photographs from a ski trip to the French Alps in March 2016. The young royal family look blissfully happy as they let PA Royal Photographer John Stillwell capture the family's first holiday as a family of four. The official social media account for the family also revealed that these pictures captured 'the first time either of the children have played in the snow'.

Kensington Palace, the London residence of the Duke and Duchess Of Cambridge, released this picture-perfect Christmas card from the Cambridge's in December 2015.

The caption was an appropriately festive greeting, saying 'Merry Christmas from The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The Duke and Duchess are hugely appreciative of all the warm messages they have received about their family this year and are very much looking forward to their first Christmas as a family of four.'

Kensington Palace also released two adorable pictures of Princess Charlotte at six months old, captioning the images with 'The Duke and Duchess hope everyone enjoys these new photos of Princess Charlotte as much as they do.'

The images, taken by her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, show baby Charlotte dressed in an adorable pink dress from Spanish brand m&h, thought to be given as a gift from her nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo. And the best part? The dress is worth £21, becoming the new hot item for fans of the royal family.

Just weeks after welcoming their second child Princess Charlotte, George, Wills and Kate joined The Queen for the annual Trooping The Colour event at Buckingham Palace. We imagine that William was pointing a plane out to George - but, then again, it could have been an ice cream van.
