It's been a very busy week for Prince William and Kate, who celebrated the second birthday of their youngest son, Prince Louis, on Thursday. The couple marked the occasion by sharing an incredible series of photos of little Louis finger-painting in the garden of their Norfolk home, and talented mum Kate captured the snaps herself, as she usually does on her children's birthdays.

William and Kate said they were "very pleased to share" the series of photographs to celebrate Louis's milestone. Even Princess Eugenie couldn't resist commenting on the photos shared by Kensington Palace, leaving a sweet heart emoji beneath the social media post.

What’s more, Louis' grandad, Prince Charles, shared what might just be the sweetest photo we've seen so far this year to celebrate his young grandson's birthday. The black and white snapshot, which appeared on the official Clarence House Instagram page, shows Charles smiling as he hugs little Louis, who has his arms wrapped tightly around his grandfather's neck. The loving bond between the pair is crystal clear, and delighted fans took to the comments section to applaud the sweet photograph. The caption for the image read: "A very Happy Birthday to Prince Louis, who turns two today. The young Prince enjoys a hug from his Grandfather, The Prince of Wales."
