A heartwarming new photo captures the bond between grandfather and grandson; family members who also happen to be heirs to the same throne.

The sweet snap first surfaced in the BBC One documentary, Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70, which aired in the United Kingdom on Thursday night and was released by Buckingham Palace thereafter, The Telegraph reports.

This week, the royals released a brand-new photo of Louis, with the shot finding the prince being introduced to his grandfather, Prince Charles, by Middleton. The special moment was captured by royal photographer Chris Jackson.

"I asked him to and I think he knew it was coming and he immediately said, 'Yes, of course, I'll do whatever Megan needs and I'm here to support you, '" said Harry.

William, who noted that he also wants his father to focus on his health, continued, "When he's there, he's brilliant, but we need him there as much as possible". This is the third time the public has seen William and Kate's newest addition since his arrival in April. "He will get down on his knees and crawl about with them for hours", she said.

Harry's habit has even been picked up by his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex - who was known as Meghan Markle before marrying the flame-haired royal in May this year - who didn't understand the quirk before moving in with him.

"He will get down on his knees and crawl about with them for hours, you know, making amusing noises and laughing, and my grandchildren adore him, absolutely adore him", the Duchess of Cornwall revealed in the documentary. Earlier this week, during a visit to Ghana, the Prince opened up about his fears for his upcoming grandchild.

It comes after the Duke said his father's heavy workload can sometimes prevent him from spending quality time with his three grandchildren, saying "the man never stops". I suspect quite a few of you may too have grandchildren or will do soon. "All grandchildren deserve a better future".
