The littlest prince is not so little anymore! But isn’t he a sweetheart?!

The Duchess of Cambridge treated the world to a bit of baby-spam (well, big boy spam) by sharing adorable birthday snaps she took of her youngest son. Prince Louis turns two today (23 April) but the Duchess and Prince William released the photos on Twitter yesterday.

Sharing a sneak peek of Prince Louis’s handiwork ahead of his second birthday! We are pleased to share images ahead of Prince Louis’s second birthday tomorrow, taken by The Duchess this April.” 

The photos were taken earlier this month and focus on a bit of art and crafts fun. The little dude is dressed to impress in a smart blue gingham shirt and matching rainbow paint-covered hands. Amazingly, there isn’t even a droplet of paint on his outfit.

The special meaning behind Prince Louis’s rainbow hands

Like countless kids across the globe, Prince Louis is celebrating his big day by staying home. And, like countless mums across the globe, the Duchess of Cambridge is pulling out ALL the crafts to keep the kids busy and entertained.

Many kids are sharing their own rainbow-themed artwork during the coronavirus pandemic as a way to show support for National Health Service (NHS) workers and other essential workers tackling the coronavirus pandemic across the country.

The Cambridge trio, including Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince George, 6, also showed their support by sharing a video of them clapping in unison as part of the #ClapForOurCarers incentive.

Ups and downs

The royal family of five is currently isolating at their country home Anmer Hall, in Norfolk. They’re most likely banging their heads against the homeschooling desks like the rest of us.

Both the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have spoken out about the current COVID-19 crisis.

Kate recently told People:

“It’s been ups and downs, like a lot of families self-isolating. George is much older than Louis is, but they are aware, I’m always surprised,” Kate said. “And although you don’t want to scare them and make it too overwhelming, I think it is appropriate to acknowledge it in the simple ways and age-appropriate ways.”
