The Duke and Duchess of Sussex wrote a sweet birthday message to their cousin, Prince Louis, to mark his first birthday on Tuesday.
After Kensington Palace released a new set of official portraits of the royal baby, taken by mother-of-three, Kate, Prince Harry, 34 and Meghan, 37, went to their Instagram account to respond under the Kensington post royal.
In the heartwarming caption the expectant mother wrote on behalf of both of them: & Happy Birthday Louis! We send a lot of love from both of us. & # 39;
The royal couple, who would welcome their first child every day, completed the message with a fun birthday cake and red balloon emoji, followed by an & # 39; xo & # 39; – which equals a kiss and a hug.

Mother-to-be Meghan responded to the palace statement that read: & # 39; The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to share three new photos of Prince Louis tomorrow for his first birthday & # 39;
On Monday evening, the palace shared three new photos of Louis, who, in line with family tradition, brought Kate to Anmer Hall.
The Palace also issued a statement that said: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to share three new photos of Prince Louis tomorrow for his first birthday." The photos were taken earlier this month by The Duchess in their home in Norfolk. & # 39;
In the cute press studs, which were again tweeted by the Duke of York, Louis with pink cheeks looks curiously at the camera while wearing a blue Trotters brand sweater – which has since sold out.
In the other two photos, Prince Louis shines and gives his best cheeky expression in front of the camera and can even be seen reaching for it.
The duke and duchess of Cornwall also wished the young prince a happy birthday with a sweet Instagram post. The couple chose a photo of Louis playfully touching Charles during a family photo shoot to mark the 70th birthday of the Duke of Cornwall last year
In Louis's other adorable new photos, the young prince is dressed in a red sweater with turtle buttons on the left shoulder and black pants.
The playful toddler is covered with moss and clearly had a great time playing in the garden during the photo session with his mother.
His broad smile shows off his two lower teeth – and it seems that two more are coming soon.
The family in Cambridge is thought to bring the little prince's birthday to Kensington Palace privately, as George returns to school and Prince William flies to New Zealand later in the day to represent the queen in respecting those affected by the shooting in the mosque of Christchurch. .
