Happy Birthday Prince Louis!
In honour of Prince Louis 2nd birthday, Kensington Palace has released a couple of new photos of the tot, who’s fifth in line to the throne.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share five new photographs ahead of Prince Louis’ second birthday tomorrow,” Kensington Palace said in a statement.
Taken by mom Kate, the photos show the birthday boy grinning up at the camera in a checked shirt with coloured paint on his hands. Apparently, Prince Louis has joined children across the UK, who have been painting rainbows as a symbol of hope during the coronavirus lockdown.
His artwork resulted in a multi colored handprint which William and Kate have proudly displayed in the window of Anmer Hall.
Duchess Kate has become an accomplished royal photographer in recent years. Actually, the very first official photos of Prince Louis ever released were also taken by her.
Prince Louis big birthday party had to be cancelled this year due to the coronavirus outbreak. But, the little Prince celebrated his birthday privately with family last year too. The only difference this year is, no extended family will join them in person.
Prince Louis was born at 11:01 a.m. on 23RD April, 2018 at St Mary’s Hospital, London. Although, Prince William and Kate announced Prince George’s and Princess Charlotte’s names pretty quickly, they waited four days to tell the world they had named their new son Louis Arthur Charles.
The last time we saw Prince Louis was when the Palace shared a video of him and his siblings clapping in support doctors, nurses and caretakers putting their lives on the line to combat COVID-19. Before that, we saw him in the Cambridge family’s official Christmas card.
