Princess Charlotte tenderly kisses her baby brother Louis in a beautiful photograph taken by their mother at their home.

The newborn is seen asleep as Princess Charlotte affectionately leans in for the snap which was taken on her third birthday on May 2nd last week while the Prince was just nine day's old.

Another image released by Kensington Palace on Twitter sees the baby on his own at just three day's old, looking more alert while wearing an all-white ensemble.

Kensington Palace wrote: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share two photographs of Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, taken by The Duchess at Kensington Palace."

The photographs are the first glimpses of the new Prince since his arrival at St Mary's hospital 13 days ago

The Duchess of Cambridge, 36, is a keen photographer and took the photos at their London home. 

They bare a striking resemblance to the ones released three years ago when Prince George cradled his sister as a newborn. 

Such a beautiful family.
