Royal fans are gushing over adorable photos of Prince Louis released by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge late on Friday night to celebrate his fourth birthday on Saturday (April 23). The photos, which show him on a beach on the Norfolk coast playing cricket, include shots of him running, smiling and holding a cricket ball.
The royals’ celebration comes just two days after the Queen marked her 96th birthday on Thursday, April 21. Photos of Prince Louis have been rare outside of royal engagements due to his young age and the Middletons’ down to earth parenting style.
Fans of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took to social media to share their joy and wish the prince a very happy birthday. One user wrote: “Thank you Duchess for capturing these very intimate photographs of your children.

“There is magic in each one and tell a lot about that specific child. It’s such a lovely gift you give to your country and the rest of us who adore you! Louis is beyond adorable. Happy Birthday!”
Other fans commented on the emphasis on the outdoors in many of the Cambridges’ official photos and how pleased they are to see how happy Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis seem to be. Fans noticed Louis looks “healthy”, “happy” and “loved” as they rushed to send their personal birthday greetings to the family.
Another royal fan said the photos made them “proud to be British” and the UK was “lucky” to have two beautiful young princes. And the theme of the young prince growing up “so fast” was common across many of the birthday wishes.
There was also praise for the Duchess of Cambridge for taking such candid photos of her son, and for his cheerful disposition. One social media user pointed out: “Prince Louis has definitely inherited some gorgeous genes from his mummy, the stunning Duchess of Cambridge!”
Many well-wishers pointed out the striking similarities between Louis and his father, who both have the same hair colour and facial shape. But perhaps the strangest comparison of the day is to the Boss Baby – an animated baby who is secretly running the show.
This appears to be a reference to the prince’s hilarious facial expressions when he was pictured on the Buckingham Palace balcony as a baby – he looked less than pleased by the royal fly pass! So, to echo dozens of fans online: “Happy Birthday Boss Baby!”
