The world is getting its best glimpse yet of Prince Louis.

Kensington Palace has released new photos of Prince Louis as he celebrates his first birthday.

The rules of succession have also changed, allowing Princess Charlotte - William and Kate's second child - to maintain her position ahead of her younger brother, Prince Louis, who was born a few years later. The pink-cheeked youngster's blonde hair is carefully combed to the side as he crawls about a lush green space.

The photos, taken by Kate, show him playing in the garden of the family's home in Norfolk, on England's eastern coast. The Duchess of Cambridge is the photographer of the snaps, giving them even more of an intimate touch.

His broad smiles show off his two bottom teeth - and it looks like two more may be on their way soon.

In this rare photo, young Prince George captures the attention of his great-grandmother while leaving the Church of St. Mary Magdalene after Princess Charlotte's christening in 2015.

Israel to name part of Golan Heights region after President Trump
Around 18,000 Syrians from the Druze sect, most of whom refuse to take Israeli citizenship, remain in the occupied Golan. It upended decades of USA policy and drew some global condemnation, but also Israeli praise.

Beaming up at his mum with a super-cute toothy grin, Louis looks very chuffed with his adventurous efforts.

In these brand-new photos released by the royal family to mark the occasion, Prince Louis sports two adorable jumpers as he enjoys playtime outside.

Yes, the Sussex Royal account left a sweet birthday message on the photos which were shared by the Kensington Palace official Instagram account.

During a visit to a children's centre last month, she told a fellow parent: "He just wants to pull himself up all the time".

Louis was born at 11:01am on April 32 past year at the Lindo Wing, a private maternity ward at St. Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London.

Another person wrote: "Louis is a mix of George and Charlotte. He's got these little walkers and is bombing around on them".
