Royal Fam Releases Brand-New Prince Louis Pic for His Bday (Taken By Mom Kate Middleton)

Queen Elizabeth II isn't the only royal celebrating a big birthday this month.

Prince Louis of Cambridge may not have hit quite the same milestone as the Queen, but tomorrow will mark the third birthday of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's youngest child. To commemorate the special occasion, the couple shared a rare pic of Prince Louis on a bright red bike (that was taken by Kate Middleton herself).

Along with the photo, the couple wrote: "Three tomorrow! [bike emoji] Taken earlier this week by The Duchess before he left for his first day of nursery, The Duke and Duchess are pleased to share a new image of Prince Louis."

The photo features Prince Louis cheesing on a red Frog 40 Kids' Bike, and the fifth member in line to the throne looks thrilled to be heading to his first day of school.

Prince Louis is starting nursery school a little later than his older siblings. Prince George and Princess Charlotte both began when they were at the age of two-and-a-half. (George attended the Westacre Montessori School in Norfolk, while Charlotte went to Willcocks Nursery School in London.) If Louis had followed this trend, he would've started this past January. However, due to social distancing guidelines, it seems his parents decided to wait until his third birthday.

Happy birthday, Prince Louis!
