Prince Louis Looks So Grown-Up in a New Third Birthday Photo

What! Is! Time!

In honor of Prince Louis' third birthday on April 23, Kensington Palace shared an adorable photo of the youngster, writing: "Three tomorrow! 🚲 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. 🎈" In the photo, Prince Louis smiles at the camera, a.k.a. his mom, while holding onto the handlebars of a red bicycle. (Wait, he can ride a bike already? They grow up so fast!)

In other Prince Louis news, it was revealed last month that the young royal has taken up a new hobby that is sure to earn the Queen's stamp of approval: horseback riding. As an avid horseback rider for over nine decades, the Queen is sure to be excited to share a hobby with her great-grandchildren. According to the report from the London Times, all three of the Cambridge children have taken up lessons with an instructor at their Norfolk home. Apparently, the kids have "been keen on having their own ponies for some time." Now that England's lockdown restrictions have eased, hopefully the kids can saddle up with their grandmother, who reportedly still rides at the young age of 95.
