First days at home: William, Kate share Prince Louis photos

Posted: Updated:

LONDON (AP) - Two pictures have been released documenting the early days of Britain's newest prince - and one shows Prince Louis being cuddled by 3-year-old big sister Princess Charlotte.

One of the photos was snapped when Louis was just three days old. He was born April 23 and went home the same day.

The two snapshots were released by Prince William and his wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, and were taken by Kate at their home in Kensington Palace. Big brother Prince George, 4, is not in the photos.
