On the day before Prince Louis first birthday, Prince William and Kate Middleton shared new photos of their growing baby boy.
It’s a tradition among the Cambridges, who have shared Middleton’s photos of her children throughout the years on social media.
In the past, William and Kate have shared photos of their daughter, Princess Charlotte, just weeks after she was born in the arms of their oldest child, Prince George, who was just one-and-a-half at the time.
Several months later, Middleton shared photos ahead of Charlotte’s first birthday:
And now the proud parents of three are sharing new photos of their youngest, who turns 1 year old on April 23.
The first picture shows Prince Louis smiling ear to ear and showing off his two bottom teeth while playing in the grass:
