Prince Louis turns 2 today, and to celebrate, the Palace just dropped four heavenly new pictures of the ridiculously cute royal.
Of course, the current climate has resulted in a rather different celebration for the growing toddler this year.
Mom Kate Middleton and Dad Prince William are currently isolating at their country home in Norfolk, with their three young children George, 6, Charlotte, 4, and Louis amid the COVID-19 health pandemic.
But despite staying indoors, the family have still found a way to celebrate the momentous occasion with the world — and the new pictures have gone above and beyond our expectations.
And that’s not least because of how adorable the young birthday boy is.
Sharing the new images on the eve of his second birthday, Louis is seen putting his artistic skills to use with rainbow colored paint.
His clothing choice was rather risky given his activity — a blue and white checkered shirt was bound to get a few paint splatters here and there. But all in the name of good fun, of course!
Ever the photographic whiz, the images were snapped by shutterbug Catherine herself earlier this month at their country home Anmer Hall in Norfolk.
New images like these of the young royals come few and far between, and this marks a rare glimpse at how quickly Louis is growing up.
We last saw the royal in March when his parents posted a sweet video to Cambridge’s Instagram account, Kensington Royal, in March.
Standing beside his older brother George and sister Charlotte, Louis was seen clapping his hands as the siblings partook in the Clap for Carers initiative which hailed those working on the frontline amid the COVID-19 crisis.
While Louis’ special day is undoubtedly different to any he’ll likely celebrate again in the near future, the royals knew how to make the best of it.
In fact, it was only two days ago that the royals celebrated Queen Elizabeth’s 94th birthday, which was also marked with some special social media tributes.
Louis’ parents Catherine and William led the royal pack with an Instagram tribute featuring a sweet image of the Duke and Duchess alongside the Queen.
