LONDON, UK — Prince Louis is turning 4 on Saturday and his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, are celebrating by sharing new photographs of their youngest son.
The photos were taken earlier this month in Norfolk, England, by his mother, Kate. The young prince can be seen in the photos playing with a yo-yo and exploring a beach area.
It has become a birthday tradition for Kensington Palace to release snapshots on George, Louis and Charlotte's birthdays that were taken by their mother.
Louis is a great-grandson of Queen Elizabeth II, who turned 96th on Thursday and celebrated her birthday privately. This is also the queen’s platinum jubilee year, marking her 70 years on the throne. Public celebrations will take place June 2-5, when four days of jubilee festivities have been scheduled to celebrate.
George turns 9 in July, while Charlotte turns 7 in May.
"4 years old tomorrow!" William and Kate captioned a post on social media in honor of Louis' birthday on Saturday.
Last year, Louis' birthday also coincided with him starting preschool, so the palace shared a photo of the young prince on a bike before he left for his first day of preschool.
