Royal Portraits Mark Prince Louis’s First Birthday

Granted, everyone is excited for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby, but a year ago, the focus was on a different member of the royal family…

The world waited patiently as news emerged that Catherine Middleton had gone into labor at the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital, where she had delivered her two previous children.

Hours later, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stood outside the hospital with their new bundle of joy, whom they later named Louis Arthur Charles.

That all took place a year ago, on April 23rd, with Prince Louis now celebrating his first birthday.

As is tradition, birthday portraits of the member of the monarchy have been shared with the public — but this time they have been taken by the toddler’s doting mother.

Earlier this month Kate whipped out her professional camera at their family home in Norfolk and took photos of her adorable son wearing a maroon sweater and another in a denim-blue sweater with a puppy that is almost as cute as Louis himself!

Happy birthday, little prince!
