Even the Duke of Cambridge can’t stop himself from laughing with his children. Kensington Palace has issued a new portrait in honor of Father’s Day.
Prince William is pictured standing with Prince Louis, his youngest son, on his shoulders, and Prince George and Princess Charlotte at his sides. While their father is beaming, the children appear to have been caught in the act of laughing.
“Wishing a Happy Father’s Day to parents and grandparents around the world today!” William and Kate Middleton captioned the festive photo on Instagram. The photo was taken in Jordan during the Cambridges’ trip last fall.
The snapshot was taken just weeks after Prince Louis made news during Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee when he can not really stop making faces and shushing his mother. The youngest son of William and Middleton is starting to join his elder siblings at royal engagements, and he has been taking advantage of every opportunity to flaunt his brilliantly cheeky nature. After the Queen’s Jubilee, even Louis’s parents can not really help but comment on their hyperactive son’s antics.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge thanked everyone who contributed to the queen’s historic occasion in a tweet on June 6. They wrote, “Thank you to all those who came out to express their thanks to The Queen and her amazing 70 years of leadership.” “We hope you enjoyed a weekend to remember, from the crowds on the Mall to communities staging street festivities across the country.” In a second tweet, the pair praised Louis in particular, writing, “We all had a fantastic time, especially Louis…”

With young Louis now accompanying his siblings on royal trips, it’s evident that William and Middleton’s family is maturing right before our eyes.
However, charming images like the one the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge published for Father’s Day serve as a reminder that, despite being royals, George, Charlotte, and Louis are still regular kids who like to make faces and keep their parents on their toes.
