A gorgeous new photo of the British royal family has been released - and Prince Louis makes an appearance

And they're stunningly candid!

Royal enthusiasts have been treated to never-before seen images of the British royal family in celebration of Prince Charles' 70th birthday - with two family portraits in particular causing much delight.

The portraits, taken by royal photographer Chris Jackson of Getty Images, show the royal family in a truly candid light, with Prince Charles and his wife Duchess Camilla sitting on a bench with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, while Duchess Catherine, holding young Prince Louis, Princes William and Harry and Duchess Meghan all stand behind.

Taken at Clarence House in September this year, Jackson said the moment was particularly special as the royal grandfather approached his 70th birthday.

"I was delighted to have been asked to take these portraits of The Prince of Wales surrounded by his family to celebrate the important milestone of his 70th Birthday," Jackson said in an official statement.

He added: "It was particularly special to capture such an informal and relaxed family portrait over a fun afternoon in the gardens of Clarence House."

One image shows the royal family looking poised, while the other shows a beautifully candid moment as they all share a laugh together. See the adorable images below!

And if these gorgeous pictures weren't enough, last week the world was delighted to see a gorgeous image of the 70-year-old sharing a special moment with Prince Louis as he was held by his mum Kate.

The new image of Prince Louis came to light during the BBC production celebrating Charles' milestone: Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70.

It's believed the candid snap was taken at Prince Louis' christening in July.
