Last year, to mark Louis’s second birthday, Kensington Palace shared snaps of the cheeky prince with his hands and face soaked in rainbow-coloured paint.
As most of the photographs of the Cambridges’ children, these pictures had been taken by Kate, a keen amateur photographer.
The Duchess of Cambridge, who appeared on ITV’s This Morning a few days after Louis’s birthday, told hosts Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield what a messy situation those snaps created.
She said: “I should’ve taken a photograph of what I looked like after as well!
“Luckily, that wasn’t documented but I was pretty much… I looked like Louis at the end of those.”
The young royal was born at St Mary’s Hospital in London in 2018.
A few hours after giving birth to her third child, Kate – accompanied by William and their latest addition to the family – left the hospital in a red dress believed to be a nod to Princess Diana, who also donned a similar outfit when introducing Prince Harry to the world.
Little Prince Louis was last seen in public in December 2020, when Kate and Prince William took him and his siblings to watch Pantoland at the London Palladium.
For that special occasion, Louis donned a Dutch blue jacket with navy piping details from Amaia Kids, which had been previously worn by his elder brother Prince George in 2016.
Prior to that, he appeared in a video where he and his siblings asked one question each to Sir David Attenborough.
Prince Louis, Prince George and Princess Charlotte are likely set to spend the Easter holidays in private at Kensington Palace with Kate and Prince William due to the coronavirus restrictions in place.
In 2018, outside of St George’s Chapel where she attended Easter service with other senior royals, Kate told to a few girls her children had enjoyed an egg hunt in the morning – a celebration they are likely to recreate this coming Sunday too.
April is set to be a major month for the Royal Family, with Louis far from being the only one celebrating a big day.
On April 21, the Queen is turning 95 – but she is expected to mark this milestone privately at Windsor Castle with her husband Prince Philip.
On April 29, Kate and Prince William will celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary.
The couple, who met at St Andrews University in Scotland, tied the knot at Westminster Abbey in 2011.
Kate and William usually celebrate their wedding anniversary privately.
Last year, they publicly marked the day by sharing a picture from their nuptials on social media together with a thank you message to royal fans who had showered them with best wishes.
However, this year they could mark the day in a different way thanks to the Queen, according to royal biographer Duncan Larcombe.
He told OK! magazine: “It’s highly likely the Queen will be planning a special secret something to honour Kate’s 10 years in the Royal Family – something she can do to mark it.
“Kate and the Queen have a fantastic relationship.
“Kate strikes that balance between bowing to her as head of the Royal Family in public but being able to check in with her as the great-grandmother to her children.”
