It's a rainy, blustery Monday - but here's the news that's going to cheer us all up.

Another royal baby!

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's baby will be arriving in the spring - but because we quite simply can't wait until then, here are lots of lovely, squishy royal baby pictures to tide us over.

You're welcome.

Prince George

Ah, to be this little one right now.

We'd all like to feel this cosy - at all times. Really we would.

Princess Charlotte

The baby princess seen here bossing the hygge trend pioneered by her brother:

The Queen

In black and white (as it was 1926) but still pretty high in the cuteness stakes:

Prince Charles

Not looking too thrilled to be picked up here, if we're honest...

Prince William

Like father like son, as baby William (looking only marginally happier than his dad did a few decades earlier) is shown off by his proud-looking mother, Princess Diana, in 1982:

Prince Harry

Amazing. Not even one but already mastered the same facial expression as his older brother, Wills. Loving your work, Harry!

Princess Beatrice

Showing she could rock a hat even at a tender age, Beatrice in a bonnet was definitely a cool winter look.

Princess Eugenie

The princess got hitched to Jack Brooksbank on Friday - but anyone remember when she looked like this?

Awwww.
