A never-before-seen photo of Prince Charles sharing a precious moment with his grandson, six-month-old Prince Louis, has been released as part of a BBC documentary celebrating his 70th birthday.
It’s been four months since we last caught a glimpse of the cute royal baby – and it was worth the wait.
The adorable picture shows a smiling Prince Charles holding hands with his youngest grandchild, who’s in the arms of Kate Middleton.
It’s a very rare peek at the relationship between the heir to the throne and his grandson, who was born on April 23.
The photo was taken in September in the gardens of Clarence House, meaning Louis would have been around five months old at the time.
The last time royal fans had glimpsed Louis was in July, when the Palace released a photo of the little boy in the arms of his mother, taken on the day of his christening.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have released an additional photograph taken following the christening of Prince Louis.
The Duke and Duchess hope that everyone enjoys this lovely photograph of Prince Louis as much as they do.

In the documentary, Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70, Prince William admitted he hopes Charles will spend more time with his grandkids in the coming years, particularly before he ascends the throne.
“It’s something I’m working on heavily. I think he does have time for it, but I would like him to have more time with the children,” the Duke of Cambridge said.
“Having more time with him at home would be lovely — and being able to, you know, play around with the grandchildren. When he is there, he’s brilliant, but we need him there as much as possible.”
