Royal Family news – Queen wishes Prince Louis happy fourth birthday as William & Kate share beautiful beach snaps


PRINCE Louis celebrates his fourth birthday today as parents William and Kate shared pictures of him playing on a beach.

The sweet photographs were taken earlier this month in Norfolk by Kate Middleton.

The fifth in line to the throne can be seen playing barefoot in green shorts and a grey jumper decorated with stars. 

Kensington Palace released the sweet shots on Friday, saying: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share four new photographs of Prince Louis ahead of his fourth birthday tomorrow.”

It follows many royal fans commenting on how similar Louis looks to a young Kate – and also grandad Michael Middleton.

The Queen has joined in with the birthday wishes as the official Royal Family Twitter account has released a short message for the prince saying: “Happy 4th Birthday Prince Louis!” accompanied with one of Kate’s beach pictures.
