Every Adorable Photo Of Prince Louis

Kate Middleton and Prince William’s youngest child is a real sweetheart.

Originally Published: 

Prince Louis, the youngest son of Kate Middleton and Prince William, just keeps on growing up. As he moves from his baby years to becoming a charming little 4-year-old, we cannot stop the inevitable march of time. But we can celebrate him by scrolling through his adorable photos.

The Cambridge family tends to give their kids as much space to be private as possible. Staying whenever they can at their country home of Anmer Hall, for instance, so the kids can run around and play to their hearts’ content. Spending time outdoors in nature is one of Kate Middleton’s integral parenting tools, after all, so much so that she even designed a “Back To Nature” garden playground for the Chelsea Flower Show in 2019.

Prince Louis has, just like his older brother and sister, been afforded the chance to enjoy much of his life so far in private. Whether he is at Anmer Hall, going to nursery school, or staying in Kensington Palace so his 8-year-old brother Prince George and 7-year-old sister Princess Charlotte can attend Thomas’s Battersea School in London.

Wherever they happen to be spending their time, Prince Louis looks like the type of kid who will make the most of whatever comes his way. Maybe it’s because he’s the youngest or maybe it’s his personality, but he tends to seem like a pretty happy-go-lucky little guy in photos. A kid who makes everyone laugh while also managing to make himself laugh, too. Grinning ear to ear in every photo, just full of sunshine.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee

The little prince stole the show at Queen Elizabeth (aka Great-Granny)’s Platinum Jubilee celebrating her Majesty’s 70 years reign as monarch. While the royal family is known for their regal comportment at state events, the fact of the matter is a 4-year-old is a 4-year-old, and Louis could be seen making faces...

... and just generally being royally meme-able.

It was the Queen’s Jubilee, but Louis made it his day.

4 Years Old!

Ahead of Prince Louis’ fourth birthday on April 23, 2022, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared two precious photos of their youngest on the beach. In one, Prince Louis, dressed in a grey sweater and turquoise shorts, runs towards the camera. In the other, he’s standing in the sand holding an orange ball, perhaps taking a quick break from playing fetch with the Cambridge family’s new puppy. And as is tradition, Middleton snapped both of the birthday photos.

“4 years old tomorrow!” they captioned the post.

On The Move

Kensington Palace shared this adorable photo of Prince Louis on a red bike the day before his third birthday in 2021. “Taken earlier this week by The Duchess before he left for his first day of nursery, The Duke and Duchess are pleased to share a new image of Prince Louis,” the palace captioned the photo.

A Real Little Clown

In a video Prince William and Kate Middleton shared on Instagram in honor of their 10th anniversary, Prince Louis was truly the life of the party. He had both his parents laughing... if only we know what he was saying.
