Prince William and Kate Middleton shared the first new portraits in months of Prince Louis earlier this week in celebration of his 2nd birthday. And Kate is pretty happy about the chatter among royal fans, family, and friends that Louis looks more like Kate than William, People reports.
“Everyone always comments on how Louis is the spitting image of Kate,” a friend told the outlet. “She loves it and thinks it’s very sweet; she often jokes that he’s the only one of her kids who actually looks like her!”
Kensington Palace shared two Instagram posts full of photos of Louis, including one in which the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s team gave two pics the meme treatment. “Instagram vs Reality,” they captioned that one. “Thank you for all your lovely messages on Prince Louis’ second birthday! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share new photographs of Prince Louis, taken by The Duchess this April.”
They captioned their first post, “Sharing a sneak peek of Prince Louis’ handiwork ahead of his second birthday! 🎨 The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share new images of Prince Louis, taken by The Duchess this April.”
Louis made another rare appearance last night when he appeared with his parents and brother and sister on BBC One’s Big Night In program. He participated in the #ClapforCarers moment during the broadcast.
