Prince Louis of Wales has just turned five, and a slew of royal fans have said they can’t help but feel ‘old’ – after the time that seems to have passed since the young monarch was born.
The little boy smiled in a new photo posted to Instagram late on the eve of his fifth birthday, in which his mother Kate is seen gently pushing him in a stroller.
In the photo, the youngest of Wales is captured sitting atop a pile of garden clippings in the garden of Adelaide Cottage in Windsor on the family home. The prince smiles from ear to ear as he looks into the camera as he relaxes in a plaid shirt, blue Fairisle blazer and navy blue shorts to match the playful ensemble.
Royal fans expressed their disbelief at how fast the monarch had grown.
One fan commented: “Our baby is no longer a baby!” Happy fifth birthday to our Prince Louis! Best non-young boy!
