Of course, royal fans were quick to comment on the adorable shots of a smiling Louis. “He is so adorable!!!!! Happy birthday little Prince,” wrote one well-wisher. Commented another, “What a sweetheart. Looks so much like Kate from what I can recall of her baby pictures!”
The most recent photos of the baby were shared back in November to mark the Prince of Wales’ 70th birthday. One shot shows Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla posing with George and Charlotte, while Kate holds Louis next to Will, Harry and Meghan. A second photo shows a smiling Charles cradling an equally happy Louis.
While Prince Charles’ birthday shots at Clarence House were taken by royal photographer Chris Jackson, the Duchess of Cambridge is behind many of the family photographs that have been shared to the public.
