Back in April, when Prince Louis turned 2, Prince William and Kate released a couple of photos to celebrate his special day.
Taken by mom Kate, the photos show Louis smiling with the paint on his hands as well as his finished artwork.
But now, a more formal photo of the birthday boy was released too. Prince William and Kate have shared a previously unseen photograph of their youngest child to thank royal fans for their well-wishes on his birthday.
In the new snap, Prince Louis can be seen grinning at his mom behind the camera. It was shared on Instagram over the weekend by royal fan account @katsroyalletters. Having in mind that he is wearing the same checkered shirt, we can say that the image was definitely taken on the same day as the previous photos.
The note reads: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge appreciated your kind thought in writing to Prince Louis as you did on the occasion of his second birthday.
“This was greatly appreciated by Their Royal Highnesses who send you their best wishes.”
Soon after Prince Louis’s birthday, Kate spoke on This Morning. She was praised for her adorable snaps of the Prince, which she captioned “Instagram vs Reality.”
The mom-of-three joked: “I should’ve taken a photograph of what I looked like after as well! Luckily, that wasn’t documented but I was pretty much… I looked like Louis at the end of those.”
Last month, during an interview, Duchess Kate revealed that her son Louis is too young to understand the importance of social distancing.
Chatting with Kerry, Darren and their son Dexter, she said: “I was just saying, Louis doesn’t understand social distancing.
“So he goes out wanting to cuddle everything, particularly any babies younger than him.”
