Prince Louis, the youngest son of the Prince and Princess of Wales, is all grown up at the age of five, but he is still full of fun, as evidenced by some adorable new photographs of him. In the photographs, taken by photographer Millie Pilkington, the little prince is seen sitting in a wheelbarrow of garden weeds and being pushed by his doting mother, the Princess of Wales. Dressed in blue shorts, a checked shirt, and a bright blue fair isle sweater, he looks ready for outdoor play in the garden of his family's home at Windsor.
Prince Louis has already made some public appearances, such as appearing in the Trooping the Colour procession and joining the royal family for the Easter Sunday service at St George's Chapel at Windsor. He is set to appear alongside his parents and older siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte in the Coronation Procession from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace on May 6, following the crowning of his grandfather, the King.
Prince Louis is now two-thirds of the way through his first year at Lambrook School, which offers outstanding teaching as well as after-school activities including tennis, ballet, and cooking. He clearly inherited his parents' sporty sides, with his mother revealing that his favorite sport is rugby. The energetic little prince loves running around and getting his energy out, with the trampoline in the garden being a favorite spot.
Despite rumors that the family plans to move into the much grander Royal Lodge, the Prince and Princess, along with their three children, are very comfortable in their current four-bedroom property, Adelaide Cottage in Windsor, which boasts expansive gardens in the heart of Windsor Home Park. According to a friend of the family, they are “so happy there,” and the property “feels very much like a home to them and they are really settled now. It's just the five of them and they love it.”
As Prince Louis celebrates his fifth birthday, he has a big year ahead of him, with the Coronation Procession and other royal events on the horizon. However, it's clear that he is up for the challenge, with his playful and energetic nature sure to charm royal watchers around the world.
