Adorable photos of Prince Louis have been released to celebrate his second birthday.
Kensington Palace have shared four photos of the young prince to celebrate his birthday today.
The little prince, has an older sister Charlotte and older brother George – who is third in line to the throne.
In the birthday photos Louis had his hands covered in rainbow paint, making a rainbow print handprint – joining in with children across the UK who have been making rainbow pictures of hope for the NHS during the coronavirus crisis.
Sharing the photos to instagram the palace revealed the photos had been taken by Louis's mum The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, who is a keen photographer.
The palace captioned the photos: "Sharing a sneak peek of Prince Louis’s handiwork ahead of his second birthday!
"We are pleased to share images ahead of Prince Louis’s second birthday taken by The Duchess this April."
And fans couldn't believe how much the young prince had grown up.
Nadine Jolie Courtney said: "Wow, he’s so big now! Adorable! Thanks for sharing with us."
Sammy Latham said: "When did we get old enough for the baby to look this grown up?!"

Louis' artwork is likely to be part of William and Kate's home-schooling lessons, with the Duchess admitting she kept the make-shift classroom up and running during the Easter holidays.
In a recent interview, she said she found teaching her children at home "challenging", and added with a laugh "don't tell the children we've actually kept it going through the holidays, I feel very mean".
She said: "It's just having that bit of structure, actually. It's great, there are so many great tips online and fun activities that you can do with the children so it hasn't been all hardcore."
Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge, fifth in line to the throne, was born on St George's Day, April 23, 2018, at the private Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London, weighing 8lb 7oz.
He was christened at 11 weeks old, by Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, at the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace in front of friends and family.

Louis has rarely been seen in public – his most prominent outing was his first appearance on Buckingham Palace's balcony, following the Trooping the Colour ceremony last summer, with his parents, siblings and other members of the royal family.
But he has featured in a number of images released by William and Kate and was even in a video with his older brother and sister applauding the nation's health workers and carers.
