Birthday boy on the beach
New photos released: Prince Louis turns four

Prince Louis, Prince William and Duchess Kate’s third child, is celebrating his fourth birthday. In his honor, his parents publish new beach photos of him and they show that the youngest of the royals seems to be doing great.

For her youngest son’s birthday, the enthusiastic amateur photographer Duchess Kate (40) published several photos of Prince Louis. The younger brother of Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 6, can be seen barefoot frolicking with a brightly colored cricket ball in front of the dunes of a beach in the east English county of Norfolk.

Under his gray sweater, the little prince wears a white shirt befitting his status, while his short green pants look a bit more casual. The photos of Louis – currently fifth in line to the British throne – are said to date from this month. Prince William (39) and Kate’s family spends a lot of time at their home near the coast, Anmer Hall, which is part of the royal Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.

On previous birthdays and other occasions, the family has published photos of the children taken by Kate in the rural area. Congratulations came from the palace: “Happy 4th Birthday Prince Louis!” It said on the Royal Family’s official Twitter account – provided with a red birthday cake.
