Two pictures of the newborn were released by Kensington Palace Sunday.

One photo was taken when Prince Louis was just 3 days old.

In the other, Princess Charlotte plants a kiss on her baby brother’s forehead. It was taken on her third birthday.

A palace statement said Sunday that William and the Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, are "very pleased" to share the photos. The photographs were taken by Middleton.

Louis was born at St. Mary’s Hospital in London on April 23, weighing 8 pounds, 7 ounces.
