Kate Middleton & Prince William Finally Dropped a New Photo of Prince Louis on His 6th Birthday after IG Silence

After maintaining silence on Instagram, Kate Middleton and Prince William have shared a fresh photograph of Prince Louis to mark his sixth birthday. Social media users have responded to their birthday tribute.

In the heartwarming image, the youngest of the Wales children beams brightly at the camera, displaying his gleaming teeth.

The caption reads, “Happy 6th Birthday, Prince Louis!,” expressing gratitude to everyone who has sent well wishes.

Fans have flooded the comment section with birthday greetings for Prince Louis. “Happy birthday Prince Louis – growing up quickly, lovely picture,” wrote one admirer.

Similarly, another commented, “Happy birthday Prince Louis! You are growing up so fast. I hope you have a great day. God bless you and your beautiful family.”

“There’s so much personality in his face. I bet he is wonderful to have as your baby,” remarked another well-wisher. Someone else noted the resemblance between Prince Louis and Prince George, stating, “Louis looks so much like George here!”

This update follows our earlier report that Kate and Prince William had not yet shared a birthday tribute to Prince Louis on his actual birthday or before, as they had done in the past.

Monday marked Prince Louis’s 6th birthday, prompting anticipation among eagle-eyed fans for a birthday post from his parents.

One individual posted a gif of Daffy Duck with a worried expression, alongside the caption, “We right now … waiting for Prince Louis Birthday pictures.”

“In 2016, KP shared Prince George’s third birthday pictures in the morning, so it’s likely they will do the same for Louis tomorrow. I’m glad the press didn’t get it tonight because they don’t deserve it. Fingers crossed for tomorrow,” speculated another.

Despite the arrival of April 23, no new photos of Prince Louis surfaced online, leading some fans to cling to the hope that pictures might be posted later in the day. “Waiting to see if any photos get released of Prince Louis on his birthday,” wrote one hopeful fan.

Referring to Prince Louis’s parents, another stated, “I hope the Prince and Princess of Wales don’t allow the Mother’s Day picture controversy to discourage them from releasing a birthday photo for Prince Louis’s sixth birthday.”

However, disappointment ensued as no photos emerged online at that point, prompting someone else to express, “Disappointed we did not get a new photo of Prince Louis for his 6th Birthday. Was looking forward to it.”

In the past, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have shared birthday posts for Prince Louis, typically featuring adorable pictures and short, sweet messages like “A very happy birthday to Prince Louis.”

In addition to these birthday posts, Kate Middleton has revealed her fondness for baking the children’s birthday cakes. She mentioned, “I love making the cake. It’s become a bit of a tradition. I love it.”

Kate even received baking tips from “The Great British Baking Show’s” Alice Fevronia, who confirmed, “She mentioned that she’d been up quite late on a couple of occasions trying to decorate the kids’ birthday cakes.”

Given Kate’s hands-on approach to motherhood, especially when it comes to celebrating her children’s birthdays, many were puzzled by the absence of a public celebration for Prince Louis this year.

Prior to their recent birthday post, the official Instagram account for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had not made any updates for four days. The previous post showcased Prince William’s involvement with the Surplus to Supper charity, highlighting the delivery of freshly-cooked meals to local projects.

The reason behind the lack of a Prince Louis birthday tribute remained unknown until now. However, it is public knowledge that Kate, Prince Louis’s mother, is currently undergoing cancer treatment, facing a challenging battle that she aims to shield her children from as much as possible.

In a video revealing her cancer diagnosis, Kate emphasized the importance of explaining the situation to Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis in an age-appropriate manner, reassuring them that she is getting stronger every day.

Before sharing these details about her cancer diagnosis and before the recent public reaction to Prince Louis’s 6th birthday, Kate, Prince Louis, and his siblings attracted attention online.

Their Mother’s Day photo sparked speculation and public outcry, as we reported previously on March 11, 2024. The photograph, showing Kate embracing her three children, raised questions about the unusual hand gestures of the kids.

Speculation arose about the symbolism behind Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte crossing their fingers. Some interpreted it as a sign of deception or hidden messages, particularly given the controversies surrounding the Middleton family at the time.

The finger-crossing gesture sparked comparisons to “The Truman Show,” where crossed fingers were associated with falsehood and deception. Fans speculated about possible parallels between the movie’s themes and the perceived dynamics within the royal family.

As speculation continues to swirl around the British royals, one thing is certain: the intrigue surrounding Kate’s health, her children’s gestures, and the family’s dynamics only adds to the ongoing drama.
