Too much.

The Cambridges are one of the most talked-about families in the world, but while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spend the most time in front of the cameras, it’s their children that really steal the limelight.

From Princess Charlotte’s signature sass and Prince George’s cheeky grin to their royal waves when meeting their brother, Prince Louis, these toddlers never fail to make news. And it looks like Prince Louis is following after his royal siblings.

Last year, Kate and Wills gave us the most hilarious baby update that Prince Louis was 'a fast crawler' and ever since, we have bene longing for updates.

Luckily, the youngest Cambridge melted hearts this weekend as they released an early portrait of their royal son ahead of his first birthday.

‘Happy Birthday Prince Louis!’ Read the caption alongside a very smiley snap of the prince. ‘The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to share this new photograph of Prince Louis ahead of his first birthday tomorrow.’

While the early photos were a lovely surprise, prince Louis’ happy demeanour was expected, with the royal’s christening photos quite possibly being the happiest on record.

There’s no news on how Prince Louis will be celebrating his birthday but we hope he and the Cambridges have a very special day!
