Prince William and Kate Middleton celebrate Prince Louis’ birthday

On April 23, Louis officially turned two years old. Prince Charles was not the only one to share new photos in honor of his big day. Prince William and Kate shared a slew of sweet pics of Louis that shows how much he has grown since his first birthday.

Dressed to impress, Louis wore a stylish checkered button-up and pants for the special occasion. Although Louis looked very much like a proper royal, he wasn’t afraid to get a little messy on his birthday.

The pics reveal that Louis had a lot of fun painting a rainbow with his hands. The two-year-old’s hands were covered in a range of colors that eventually got smudged all over his adorable face.

The photos were taken outside at Anmer Hall, where the Cambridges are staying amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Kate Middleton opens up about homeschooling

When they are not celebrating birthdays, William and Kate have been actively homeschooling their three children. Louis has yet to start school, but his older siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, are in their second and first years, respectively.

Schools throughout the United Kingdom have been shut down due to the virus, which has left parents with the challenge of homeschooling their little ones. According to The Daily Beast, Kate recently opened up about teaching her children from home and revealed that she is always amazed by how much energy they expend on a daily basis.

“The children have got such stamina, I don’t know how they do it. Honestly, you get to the end of the day and you write down the list of all the things that you’ve done in that day: pitch a tent, take the tent down again, cook, bake. You get to the end of the day, they’ve had a lovely time, but it is amazing how much you can cram into a day, that’s for sure,” Kate shared.

Based on the photos from Louis’ birthday, it is clear that William and Kate’s children get plenty of playtime outside. It is also good to see that the couple is making the best out of the current situation, which has forced the royals to isolate themselves from other family members.

Prince Charles joins the birthday fun

In a normal year, Charles would likely join William and Kate to celebrate Louis’ birthday. But due to the pandemic, Charles is currently isolating at his estate in Scotland with his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles.

While Charles could not visit with his grandson in person, he did offer a special shout-out on social media. Taking to Instagram, Clarence House posted an adorable pic of Charles holding Louis in a loving embrace.

“A very Happy Birthday to Prince Louis, who turns two today,” Clarence House wrote alongside the pic. “The young Prince enjoys a hug from his Grandfather, The Prince of Wales.”

We do not know when the photo was taken, but it is easily one of the most adorable ones we have seen of Prince Charles and Louis. It is also readily apparent that the image is one of the Prince of Wales’ favorites.

After recovering from the coronavirus, Charles updated fans on this health with a video that was taken from inside the drawing room at his Scottish estate. A slew of photos were displayed behind Charles, and the pic of him and Louis is among the ones in the center.

Is Prince Charles an avid Tik Tok user?

When he is not posting adorable photos of his grandchildren, Charles apparently loves watching online videos. According to Page Six, Charles recently revealed that he has been enjoying people’s viral videos, which he believes show “the very best in people.”

“In such testing times, it is reassuring to see that adversity is bringing out the very best in people,” Prince Charles stated, adding that technology is “allowing us to keep working, but also to keep in touch through virtual parties, games, singing — and some of the funniest videos I have seen for a long time!”

Charles did not specify which platform he uses to get his viral content, but some fans have speculated that Tik Tok might be at the top of his list.

The royals have been using Zoom to video conference with charities and family members amid the lockdown. Last week, for instance, Prince Charles chatted with Queen Elizabeth via Zoom in honor of her 94th birthday.
