The youngest child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has almost reached school age and no doubt there will be much fun in the royal household to mark his special day. We wonder what presents Louis' siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte will give him?

Below, HELLO! takes a look back at Prince Louis' milestone moments in his first four years of life – from his christening, to his first time at the polo and his official birthday pictures.

Prince Louis' birth

Aw, who remembers this snap? Prince William and Duchess Kate presented their new baby boy to the world on the steps of the Lindon Wing of St Mary's Hospital in London on 23 April 2018.

Little Louis was born at 11:01am, weighing 8lbs 7oz, and was declared fifth in line to the throne.

The young Prince was utterly adorable in his first birthday portrait, taken by his mother at their Norfolk home. He looked so smart in his navy trousers and cosy red jumper.

It was wonderful to see Prince Louis make his first-ever appearance at Trooping the Colour in June 2019.

The youngest Cambridge child stuck close to dad William for the Royal Air Force flypast, which the royals watched from the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

We loved this photo of young Louis taken by the Duchess to celebrate his second birthday. Having a blast covered in paint, the Prince smiled for the camera on his special day.

Prince Louis meets Sir David Attenborough

It was a special occasion for the Cambridge children as they met a true hero, nature broadcaster Sir David Attenborough.

The photographs were taken in the gardens of Kensington Palace, and we're sure young Louis looked on in awe as Sir David presented his older brother George with a real shark's tooth!

Louis' first theatre trip

It was a trip to the pantomime for Louis and his siblings in December 2020.

The Cambridges attended a special pantomime performance at London's Palladium Theatre, to thank key workers and their families for their efforts throughout the pandemic.
