Prince Louis of Cambridge’s first birthday on April 23rd was celebrated with a series of adorable family photos taken at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s family home on the Sandringham Estate. Proud mum Kate took the photos herself. Speaking recently about Louis’ development she said: “He just wants to pull himself up all the time. He’s got these little walkers and is bombing around on them.” With his parents mindful of protecting his privacy Louis has rarely been seen in public and royal watchers were quick to note the family likeness between father William and his two boys – George and Louis.
Across the North Sea in Denmark another royal scion celebrated her birthday. Princess Isabella of Denmark’s 12th birthday on April 21st was also marked with the release of new portraits. Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary’s second child is shown during the holidays with family dog Grace.
