The royal anchorman baby is back!

Bhutan’s Dragon Prince, Jigme Namgyel is once again showing off his crowning glory – this time, in six new photos shared on Instagram by his mom, the Dragon Queen.

In one photo of the royal family of three, the caption states that the prince, who turned six months old on August 5, "grows up so quickly."

The new photos were taken on a recent trip with his parents, King Jigme, 36, and Queen Jetsun, 26, on a visit to Dechenphu Lhakhang, a traditionally built red-stone temple set at an elevation of more than 8,000 ft. Its origins are believed to date back to the 14th century.

The visit, to a site thought to be auspicious to children born (as the young prince was) within the Thimphu Valley housing both the Royal Palace and the nation’s capital, is part of the Royal Family’s program to introduce the heir apparent to his subjects within the landlocked Himalayan kingdom.

Earlier this year, the young family hosted Prince William and Princess Kate during the royal couple’s visit to India and Bhutan.
