We’d heard word of this, waited patiently, and at last—yes—we got this almost too-adorable shots of the royal bebbies George and Charlotte getting acquainted via the Kensington Palace’s official Twitter account. Whether you’re a royal follower or not, the abject cuteness of a (little) big brother with his brand, spankin’ new sister on his lap is simply undeniable. The knit onesie, the future king’s blue socks, the 20 teeny, little fingers—we mean, he even gives her a little smooch for crying out loud. We could eat ‘em up (that is, if it wouldn’t cause an accession crisis).
