The birthday post comes one month after the Princess of Wales shared her cancer diagnosis on March 22.

The image was taken in recent days by Kate in Windsor, which is where the family live in Adelaide Cottage on the Windsor Castle estate.

It is the first picture of the children released by Kensington Palace since the controversial Mother’s Day image edited by Kate.

Later, Kate admitted to editing the image after people noticed discrepancies, including Kate not wearing her engagement and wedding rings.

“Like many amateur photographers, I do occasionally experiment with editing,” she wrote on X shortly after fans began noticing the edits. “I wanted to express my apologies for any confusion the family photograph we shared yesterday caused. I hope everyone celebrating had a very happy Mother’s Day.”

Following the controversy surrounding the edited image, this new picture of Prince Louis is understood to be unedited.

William and Kate’s youngest child is expected to mark his sixth birthday with celebrations organised by his parents.
