All royal baby talk currently seems to be fixated on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's future newborn, but let's not forget about the adorable very recent addition to Prince William and Kate Middleton's family—Prince Louis. Aside from the royal infant's official christening portraits, the public has seen very little of the six-month-old since his birth in April. Until now, that is—prepare for your heart to melt with the latest snapshot of the tiny prince.

Thanks to the new BBC documentary, Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70, which aired Thursday, royal fans caught a glimpse of Prince Charles playing with his grandson in a never-before-seen moment. According to Daily Mail, the photo memorializing the tender moment—shot by royal photographer Chris Jackson—dates back to September. Kate, clad in a long sleeve polka dot dress, is seen holding Prince Louis, around five months old at the time, in the Clarence House garden. The infant, unsurprisingly sporting quite the princely ensemble, seems intently focused on his beaming grandfather, who turns 70 next week. Just look at those little baby fingers!

Charles's compassion for his newest daughter-in-law, Meghan Markle, also came to light in the documentary. According to People, an interview with Harry showed the soon-to-be-royal-father dishing on Prince Charles's role in his May 19 wedding—walking Meghan down the aisle in place of her father, who refused to attend.

"I asked him to and I think he knew it was coming and he immediately said, ‘Yes, of course, I’ll do whatever Meghan needs and I’m here to support you,'" Harry said, per People. "For him that’s a fantastic opportunity to step up and be that support, and you know he’s our father so of course he’s gonna be there for us."

Meghan is due with her first child this spring 2019, giving Prince Charles his fourth grandchild to fawn over.
