Prince Louis is so grown up!
Prince William and Kate Middleton shared a series of new photos of their youngest child on the occasion of his fourth birthday on Saturday.
“4 years old tomorrow!” they captioned the adorable snaps.
In the shots, taken by Middleton, Louis is playing barefoot on a beach, smiling toward the camera. Little Louis wore for the sweet photoshoot included teal shorts and a white-and-blue collared shirt underneath a light gray sweater with colorful stars across the chest.
Fans immediately commented the post. “He is so grown up 🤩🤩🤩,” one comment read, followed by another that noted, “Time passes so quick happy birthday 🥳.”
Other fans called the toddler (although not for long) “dapper,” “handsome” and “sweet,” while another even said he looked like “a good mix of Charlotte and George!”
Louis’ sister, Princess Charlotte, will be 7 early next month, and his big brother, Prince George, turns 9 later this summer.
As is modern tradition, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge often take and post professional photos to mark special occasions.
Their last big photographic to-do was late last year for the family’s 2021 Christmas card.
For the picture — which was taken in Jordan while on a private trip — William, 39, and Middleton, 40, wore casual attire and posed with their three kids.
“Delighted to share a new image of the family, which features on this year’s Christmas card 🎄,” the Instagram caption read.
Jordan holds a special place in the Duchess’ heart, as she spent two years of her childhood living in the country while her father worked for British Airways.
William, for his part, visited Jordan and the Middle East on an official tour in 2018, vowing to one day return with his children.
