It had to be original. It had to use modern technology. It had to reflect love and affection. It had to reflect intimacy. At the same time it had to represent innocence.

It might sound a tall order, but the first official photos of Britain’s newest royal, Prince Louis, and his big sister, Princess Charlotte, which have been shared by Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge achieved all this.┬áThe two photographs, released early Sunday, were taken by Catherine at Kensington Palace in London, where the family lives.

One, taken April 26, shows Prince Louis at just 3 days old. He’s dressed in white and lies on a white pillow, his eyes open.

The second, showing Charlotte holding Prince Louis and kissing him on his head, was taken May 2 as the princess marked her third birthday. She wears a blue cardigan and has her arm underneath her brother, whose eyes are closed.
