Prince Louis celebrated his fifth birthday on Sunday with his proud parents releasing a gorgeous new photo to mark the event.

The playful snapshot shows little Louis sat in a wheelbarrow of garden weeds while being pushed by his mother, the Princess of Wales. Take a look back at sone of the young Prince's very best moments in our video below...

The Best Of Prince Louis

It was taken by Millie Pilkington in the grounds of the family's Windsor home last week, with Louis dressed in blue shorts, a checked shirt and a bright blue Fair Isle jumper.

The photo proved to be a big hit with fans with many noting how well it showcased Louis's lively sense of fun.

And some eagle-eyed followers spotted an ongoing theme with Louis's birthday snaps.

In all the images, the little Prince is wearing blue – perhaps his favourite colour.

For his first birthday, William and Kate released a trio of images of their youngest son, taken by the Princess at their home in Norfolk. One standout image showed Louis with his hair smartly combed to one side and wearing a blue knitted jumper with a dog on the front.

His second birthday images showed the cheeky toddler with paint covering his hands – and later his face – and sporting a blue checked shirt, while the pictures for his third birthday again showed the little prince dressed all in blue and riding his bike.

Last year, the Prince and Princess shared beautiful images of Louis at the beach, dressed in a blue and white checked shirt and a grey jumper embellished with red, yellow and blue stars.

Prince Louis on his second birthday

It’s set to be a big year for little Louis. He will appear alongside his parents and older siblings Prince George, nine, and Princess Charlotte, nearly eight, in the Coronation Procession from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace on May 6, following the crowning of his grandfather the King.

Louis has been spending more time in the spotlight over the past year, joining the royal family for the Easter Sunday service at St George's Chapel at Windsor earlier this month and waving to the crowds on Christmas Day as the party walked back from church to Sandringham House.

But he is perhaps best known for sparking a string of hilarious memes after appearing on the Buckingham Palace balcony with his hands over his ears as he stood alongside his late great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth to watch the military flypast last June.
