Bringing color into quarantine life, Prince William and Kate Middleton released new pictures of their youngest son Prince Louis to ring in his second birthday.
Ahead of Prince Louis's second birthday on Thursday, his royal parents released colorful new images previously taken by mom Kate giving followers a "sneak peek" of his latest colorful creations.

"Sharing a sneak peek of Prince Louis’s handiwork ahead of his second birthday!" Kensington Palace said in a statement. "We are pleased to share images ahead of Prince Louis’s second birthday tomorrow, taken by The Duchess this April."
The slideshow of images features the tot grinning from ear to ear in a new blue shirt he managed to keep clean while his hands told another story.
Covered in different colors of bright paint, Prince Louis made an adorable hand-print portrait, while the other pictures showed the tot in various poses - clearly loving his brightly-colored hands.
Prince Louis had joined other children throughout the UK to support workers of the NHS and other essential services by making rainbow-colored artistic paintings amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The royal tot, along with his parents and siblings Princess Charlotte and Prince George, is currently in self-isolation at Anmer Hall, in Norfolk. Despite the social distancing, the 2-year-old got so excited by his upcoming birthday that he already started singing "Happy Birthday" to himself.
Messages of congratulations flooded in, and as Prince Louis' special day arrived, Prince William and Kate shared additional pictures of the little birthday man with words of appreciation to their followers.
"Thank you for your lovely messages on Prince Louis’ second birthday ?. We are very pleased to share today, on Prince Louis's second birthday, new photographs taken by The Duchess this April," the caption read.
Kate and Prince William initially planned a birthday bash for their youngest son, but due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, they had to put it on hold. Nonetheless, the royal couple decided on fun family time together.
According to a source that spoke with Us Weekly, the immediate family will take advantage of their big country estate to celebrate Prince Louis' birthday instead.
If weather permits, Prince William will whip up delicious burgers and chicken on the BBQ while working off excess energy with games and outdoor sports as a family.
Despite coming up with creative ways to keep the children occupied amid the pandemic, Kate Middleton shared during an interview earlier this month that things can get "a bit hectic with a [nearly] two-year-old."
For one thing, Prince Louis gets very "enthusiastic" about video calls, which the royal family now uses to stay in touch while practicing social distancing. According to Prince William, the tot gets fixated on the red button and "always wants to press" it.
Prince Louis might be only two-years-old, but his personality already shines through. Because of his outgoing nature both in public and around his family, the little prince is said to have "cheeky streek" - a trait that he reportedly shares with his older sister Princess Charlotte.
While he already walks and talks up a storm, Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte also have another trait in common; they both "really enjoy being the center of attention."
