The Royal Family has released photos of Prince Louis in honor of his second birthday on April 23. The pictures were taken by his mom, the Duchess of Cambridge, earlier this month while Louis was in the middle of painting rainbows.
In Britain, rainbows have become a symbol of hope during the current pandemic. Throughout the country, people have been hanging rainbow paintings on their windows, drawing them with chalk on sidewalks and posting them on walls to remind people to persevere and stay home.
Kensington Palace poked fun at the photoshoot by posting an “Instagram vs. Reality” side-by-side of the prince covering himself in rainbow paint.
Kate has been known to be behind the camera to capture the family’s milestones. She took the family’s 2019 Christmas card photo as well as the famous candid photo of Prince George laughing in the grass for his sixth birthday.
Prince Louis is fifth in line to the throne and the youngest of William and Kate’s three children. He shares his Taurus zodiac sign with Queen Elizabeth, Princess Charlotte and Harry and Meghan Markle’s son, Archie.
