Princess Kate Middleton And Prince William has broken tradition by not sharing a new photo Prince Louis in the early hours of his birthday.

Royal fans keen to mark the boy’s sixth year with a celebratory photo were disappointed that his parents’ social media accounts initially remained silent, a huge break from tradition. In the past, the royal couple has been quick to release new photos of their children on their big days.

This year, however, the couple waited until Tuesday, April 23 at noon to share a new photo of Louis. They also did not share the image with the media early, despite traditionally providing it to the press under embargo the day before.

The family has released a new photo of Louis every year since 2019 on the occasion of his birthday.

Last year the couple published a photo of Kate, 42, pushing Louis around in a wheelbarrow in Windsor for his fifth birthday. For his previous birthdays, they shared photos of Louis that Kate, who describes herself as an amateur photographer, had taken herself.

The photo at the age of four was taken on a beach in Norfolk, and on his third birthday he was shown riding his bicycle at Kensington Palace.

For his first and second birthdays, the couple shared snaps taken at their home.

Princess Kate and Prince William have marked their children’s birthdays with new portraits over the years.

Last month, Kate shocked the world after announcing she was undergoing cancer treatment and would be taking a break from her public duties. The news came shortly afterwards King Charles III revealed that he has been diagnosed with cancer.

William and Kate, who are also parents to Prince George, 10, and Princess Charlotte, 8, said they shared the news sensitively with their children before making it public.
