Proud parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have released another two pictures of birthday boy Prince Louis.

Little Louis turns two today (April 23). He will celebrate at his Anmer Hall home with his parents and siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

No doubt paying tribute to the NHS, the royals showed off Louis’ handiwork. However, Brits were quick to ask how Louis stayed so clean during his hand-painting session.

In the first set of pictures, Louis can be seen in a pristine blue and white checked shirt, as he poses sweetly for his mother and holds his mucky hands up to the camera.
