The most exciting event for the pair will be Louis' fourth birthday, and we're sure his parents will pull out all of the stops to make sure that the youngster has a memorable one.

The event, which marks the anniversary of the death of Saint George, is typically celebrated across the country in a variety of ways including morris dancing or the simple hanging of the St. George's Cross.

It showed the youngster, dressed in a navy jumper and shorts, beaming at the camera as he sits on a red balance bike. He looked ready for his big day ahead as he also carried a navy rucksack.

Louis was probably welcomed by the sight of his favourite toy or a picture from home when he arrived at Willcocks, a gesture for all new children to help them make a smooth transition from home to school.
