Britain's Prince Louis is seen in this handout photograph taken by Britain's Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, at Kensington Palace in London.
Louis, who is fifth in line to the British throne, was born on April 23rd weighing 8lbs 7oz (3.83 kg).
Both the photographs were taken at Kensington Palace by Kate, the children's mother and wife of Prince William, Queen Elizabeth's grandson.
The first photograph, which the palace said was taken on April 26th, shows Louis propped up against a white cushion, wearing a white jumper and trousers.
The second photograph, taken on May 2nd, Charlotte's third birthday, shows the princess holding her sleeping younger brother affectionately.
Due to a 2013 change in the law, Charlotte is the first British princess for whom the arrival of a younger brother does not mean being demoted down the line of succession.
Palace officials said Louis would not join the rest of his family at the May 19th wedding of his uncle, Prince Harry, to U.S. actress Meghan Markle./.
