Prince Louis has made his debut on the Cambridge family Christmas card
At eight months old, this is Louis’ fifth appearance since he was born in April
Previously been seen at his christening and in Charles’ 70th birthday portraits
He may only be eight months old but it seems Prince Louis has already perfected his pose as he appears on the Cambridge family Christmas card for the first time.
Cradled in the arms of his mother Kate, Louis, who was born in April, can be seen smiling at the camera surrounded by his siblings George and Charlotte and father William.
In this most recent snap, captured by photographer Matt Porteous at the family’s Norfolk home of Anmer Hall, Louis seems to be growing up fast.
Sat up in his mum’s arms the prince, who is believed to be wearing Kensington based brand Amaia, boasts a head of dark brown hair, similar to the Duchess of Cambridge when she was a baby.
He also appears to share the same signature eyebrows and sparkling blue eyes as his two older siblings.
This is the baby’s fifth appearance since his birth having most recently joined his family for an official portrait celebrating his grandfather, Prince Charles’ 70th birthday.
The images, taken at Clarence House in September, saw the cheeky baby getting to grips with his grandfather’s face much to the family’s amusement.
Ahead of that the public was treated to adorable snaps of the fifth in line to the throne during his christening in July.
In the official portrait Louis is once again in his doting mother’s arms, but at just three months old is not capable of sitting up.
In his first appearance since his birth the palace released photographs of Louis and his older sister Charlotte just 13 days after he was born.
The images saw the newborn held in his sister’s arms at their London home of Kensington Palace taken by his mother the Duchess of Cambridge.
At this stage new born Louis is still in need of his head supporting with the help of a cushion while little Charlotte places a kiss on her brother’s forehead.
The public’s first glimpse of Louis came, of course, on the steps of the Lindo Wing, just hours after his birth on April 23.
William joked that he didn’t keep world waiting for too long after she went into labour at around 6am before giving birth five hours later, and emerging from the Lindo Wing around 12 hours after going into labour.
During his first appearance Louis slept soundly in his mother’s arms before the family-of-five made their way home.
Little has been heard about Louis, now six months old, since he was born in late April, although William has said he is a good sleeper who is adored by his big brother and sister.
