When Prince Louis turns two years old, he shows his support to NHS employees with colorful paintwork
With his paint-smeared hands and a wide grin on his face, Prince Louis is clearly pleased with his artistic creation.
When he turns two tomorrow, these charming photos show that – like millions of other children in Britain – his parents are keeping him busy painting rainbows to celebrate the NHS.
To mark this occasion, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge released a new set of photos of their youngest child.

Gone are the little wisps of baby hair and chubby face we’re used to seeing. Instead, he’s now a real cheeky little boy, full of life just like his brother, Prince George, six, and sister, Princess Charlotte, who turns five next month
Prince Louis looked absolutely thrilled with his rainbow-colored handprint to affix to the front window of the family home in Norfolk
Taken at Anmer Hall, their home in Norfolk, this month by his devoted mother Kate, they show Louis growing up fast.
Gone are the little wisps of baby hair and chubby face we’re used to seeing.
Instead, he’s now a real cheeky little boy, full of life just like his brother, Prince George, six, and sister, Princess Charlotte, who turns five next month.
And when we talk about George, don’t the two brothers look alike with the same heart-shaped faces, pink cheeks and an enchanting smile with gaping teeth?
The excited face, those enchanting big brown eyes and long eyebrows are almost identical. As this childhood photo of his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, shows, it’s not just her shock of dark hair that Prince Louis inherited. Kate is pictured here at the age of three and a half on a family vacation in Middleton in the Lake District, in an image first released in 2011 prior to her marriage to Prince William.

As we can see, dressed in a blue plaid shirt, Louis also loves his arts and crafts – one of Kate’s favorite things to do with her kids – and isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty.
He looks absolutely ecstatic about being covered in paint while making a rainbow pattern handprint to stick on the windshield of the family home.
Photos of rainbows began to pop up in windows across the country after schools closed in response to the coronavirus outbreak.
They originated in Italy and quickly spread to the UK, where they are seen as a message of hope and something fun for children during their daily hours of exercise. Kate even carefully painted a rainbow on his hands to make a perfect print.
The NHS and its staff is something that has placed William and Kate at the core of their personal and professional lives.
Not only are their three children encouraged to participate in the “ caregiver blow ” every Thursday, but the Cambridges announced a new initiative this week to support key workers by providing a dedicated mental health support system, Our Frontline.

Friends say Louis is a happy boy who loves to hunt his older brothers and sisters.
“They’re just a normal, happy, boisterous family,” said a source.
“Louis inherited George’s scooter and it doesn’t take long before he gets off Catherine’s bike on Catherine’s bike and catches up with his brother and sister. He can hold his own. ‘
Now that there is a lockdown, Louis will have to be content with a party with George and Charlotte in Norfolk and his grandparents, Charles and Camilla, and Michael and Carole Middleton, seen through a video call.
But according to his father, Louis likes to be on the phone – holding him to his face.
But Prince also revealed that the youngster has the naughty habit of making family phone calls. “For some reason, he sees the red button and always wants to press the red button,” William, 37, told the BBC.
A Kensington Palace spokesman said of last night’s new photos, “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to be sharing four new photos for Prince Louis’s second birthday tomorrow.”
“The photos were taken earlier this month by The Duchess.”
