Image: The Duchess of Cambridge
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s son Prince Louis has been photographed making a colourful rainbow poster – a symbol of hope during the lockdown – to mark his second birthday.
His handprint artwork is one of several photographs released by the family to celebrate the occasion on Thursday.
Similar pictures by children have appeared in windows across the country.
Prince Louis was photographed by his mother the Duchess of Cambridge in Norfolk earlier this month.
In a series of images, Kate has captured her son – wearing a smart blue gingham-style shirt – grinning up at the camera while displaying his brightly painted palms and fingers.
In one portrait, his coloured digits are raised to his cheeks with apparent excitement.
In another photo, Louis has smeared colourful paint all over his face, with Kensington Palace posting a light-hearted tweet saying “Instagram Vs Reality”.
The duchess – a keen amateur photographer and patron of the Royal Photographic Society – 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 William and Kate’s home-schooling lessons, with the duchess recently admitting she kept the make-shift classroom up and running during the Easter holidays.
“It’s just having that bit of structure, actually. It’s great, there are so many great tips online and fun activities that you can do with the children so it hasn’t been all hardcore,” she said.
Kate also revealed her surprise at her children’s awareness about the coronavirus outbreak and how she has tackled the subject with them in “age appropriate” ways.
