To commemorate Prince Louis' third birthday on Friday, his parents have published a new photograph of him.

On Wednesday, shortly before he left for his first day of nursery school, the Duchess of Cambridge took a photo of her youngest child in the grounds of Kensington Palace. Louis was seen smiling on his bike, dressed in a jumper, shirt, and shorts with a rucksack on his back. He grasped the handlebars, seemingly ready to cycle to Willcocks Nursery School in west London, but was instead driven there.

Prince Louis would not have been a prince if the Queen hadn't stepped in to change royal rules

 



 

 

When Louis arrived at Willcocks, he was possibly greeted by the sight of his favourite toy or a family photo. This is a gesture made to all new students to assist them in making the transition from home to school.

The fifth in line to the throne, Prince William and Kate's youngest child, was born on St George's Day, 23 April 2018, at the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London, weighing 8lb 7oz. Before starting at Thomas's Battersea, Louis attended the same school as his sister Princess Charlotte.

'He's our little boss baby'

Fans and experts alike took to Twitter to wish the little one on his birthday. References to him as 'Boss Baby' were one too many. "Prince Louis is trending number 4 in the UK. Because he's our little boss baby," said a Twitter user. "Prince Louis after finishing his first day at nursery," said another while posting a gif from the popular animated children's movie. "MAIL: Show them some pity #TomorrowsPapersToday," said another, posting the front page of the Daily Mail for Friday, April 23 which called him, in a fun pun, a 'three-sy rider'.

 



 

 



 

 



 

 

'Louis is his mummy's twin'

A Twitter user shared photos of the three royal children of Prince William and Kate Middleton, saying: "Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis on their first day of nursery school, aged three. All photos were taken by their mother Catherine in 2016, 2018, & 2021 respectively." "Prince Louis looks so much like his mummy!! I’m so emotional," said another, sharing a picture of him and Kate as a child. "Prince Louis is his mummy's twin," quipped a third.

 



 

 



 

 

Photos of Archie released, too

Meghan was recently seen with his son, Archie. The photos went live at around the same time as Louis' did. "18 minutes apart!!!!!!!!! Papp’d photo released 18 minutes before the embargoed birthday photo of Louis! Both H&M would have known photos released via RF for these occasions are embargoed until 10pm on the eve of the special day!" said a Twitter user. "So far, the Press have managed to not compare Archie with Prince Louis or Prince George. Since they love pitting women against each other, I'm expecting them to tear Princess Charlotte to shreds, over this new baby girl. God knows I won't be quiet when that happens," said another. 

"The paparazzi photos of Meghan & Archie were taken yesterday. The Murdoch press purchased it & have intentionally released it today to coincide with The Prince Louis birthday photo. This was intentional," a third said.
