The Queen has finally met her newest great-grandson Prince Louis

Prince Louis was born just over a week ago, and looks like he's received a very special visit yesterday.

It was just last week that we got the lovely news that Kate had given birth to a baby boy at the Lindo Wing, in London.

After a cute visit from big brother and sister Prince George and Princess Charlotte - who are said to be adapting very well to their new sibling - Wills and Kate got to take their new bundle of joy home on the same day.

Now, just over a week after Prince Louis was born, he finally met his great-grandmother The Queen. The Sun reports the monarch flew in a helicopter from Windsor Castle directly into the grounds of Kensington Palace, in central London.

In pictures obtained by the publication, the Queen is seen carrying a handpicked posy of spring flowers, which she presumably got as a gift for new mum Kate.

Prince Charles also paid a visit to his grandson at the same time as his mum, with the Sun reporting that they stayed around an hour and a half.

Prince Louis is the Queen's sixth great-grandchild and the third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte's younger sibling was born on April 23, just a few hours after Kate was admitted into hospital in the early stages of labour.

The official announcement read: 'Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101hrs. The baby weighs 8lbs 7oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.'

His name was announced four days later, with a tweet on the Kensington Palace official Twitter account: 'The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son Louis Arthur Charles. The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge.'
