The young prince celebrates his second birthday on Thursday, and the fruits of his labour – a rainbow hand print picture – is one of five photographs released to mark the milestone.
Catherine is a keen amateur photographer and patron of the Royal Photographic Society who has regularly released pictures she has taken of her other children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, to mark their birthdays.
Louis’ artwork is likely to be part of his home-schooling lessons, with the duchess guiltily admitting she kept the makeshift classroom up and running during the Easter holidays.
In a recent interview, she said she found teaching her children at home “challenging”, and added with a laugh “don’t tell the children we’ve actually kept it going through the holidays I feel very mean”.
Catherine has also revealed her surprise at her children’s awareness about the coronavirus outbreak, and she has tackled the subject with them in “age appropriate” ways.
Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge, fifth in line to the throne, was born on St George’s Day, April 23, 2018, at the private Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London.
Louis has rarely been seen in public – his most prominent outing was his first appearance on Buckingham Palace’s balcony, following the Trooping the Colour ceremony last northern summer, with his parents, siblings and other members of the royal family.
But he has featured in a number of images released by his parents and was even in a video with his older brother and sister applauding the nation’s health workers and carers.
