The royal family released new pictures of the whole clan on Tuesday and we can’t get over how much Prince Louis looks like Prince George.

While five-year-old Prince George is now obviously grown up, his six-month-old baby brother, Prince Louis, bears a striking resemblance to how he looked at that age.

In the first official portrait we’ve seen of Prince Louis since his christening in July, the adorable tot is being held by his mother, Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge.

Meanwhile, Prince George can be seen laughing with his mouth open as he sits on his grandfather, Prince Charles’ lap.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge brought a then tiny Prince George on royal tour with them to Australia back in 2014.

And looking at photos of Prince George when he was snapped visiting the bilby enclosure at Taronga Zoo, he looks almost identical to his baby brother.

Prince William and Kate have made a point of keeping the newest member of their family out of the spotlight since he was born on April 23.

Last week, a photo of Prince Charles with his youngest grandchild, Prince Louis, hit the internet, after Buckingham Palace posted a snapshot of the photo, before it appeared in the new BBC documentary on his life, called Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70.

While the tot’s face was covered, the heir to the throne was seen playing affectionately with the tiny prince, who was being held by his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge.

The latest photos of the royal family have been released ahead of the Prince of Wales’ 70th birthday.

The photos show Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, sitting on a bench with five-year-old Prince George and three-year-old Princess Charlotte.

Behind them Prince William can be seen beaming, while his wife, Kate holds on tight to their precious six-month-old baby boy, Prince Louis.

Prince Charles’ 34-year-old son, Prince Harry is also in the photo, with his new wife, 37-year-old Meghan Markle.
