He has his own unique look. I see his great uncle, Prince Andrew in his eyes.

Prince Louis Arthur Charles was born on April 23 at 11:01 at the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s hospital in London.
He weighed 8 pounds 7 ounces and was first seen in public seven hours after his arrival, when Kate and William stood on the steps of the Lindo Wing for a media photo call, before taking their newborn home to Kensington Palace.
He is fifth in line to the throne and is the Queen and Prince Philip’s sixth great-grandchild.
Since his birth, Louis has rarely been seen in public. Images of him with his big sister Charlotte, 3, were released shortly after he was born.
He was christened on July 9 and the service was attended by all of the Cambridges, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall and Kate’s family, the Middletons.
The public got another glimpse of Louis when he was pictured alongside his parents, siblings, Uncle Harry and Aunt Meghan and his grandfather Charles and Camilla to mark the Prince of Wales’ 70th birthday last November.
Kate has kept well-wishers updated on Louis during her various engagements.
She recently told a group of moms at the Henry Fawcett Children’s Centre in London that he “just wants to pull himself up all the time” and “he has got these little walkers and is bombing around in them.”
