Public reaction to Duchess Kate and Prince William’s handling of Prince Louis's 6th birthday

There were whispers that this year, the Duchess of Wales might deviate from the family custom of sharing a new photo of the birthday boy on Instagram. Traditionally, the couple releases official images to the media even a day before the birthday, ensuring the photographs are ready for publication.

Online commenters voiced their dissatisfaction with the latest post on the "Prince and Princess of Wales" profile, criticizing the practice of releasing photos of the prince a day before his "big day." Yet, to the pleasure of royal fans, a tradition persisted, and the account showcased a charming birthday photo of the boy, now six years old. The delightful snapshot depicts a beaming Louis in a plaid shirt relaxing on the grass in the garden.

Happy 6th Birthday, Prince Louis! Thank you for all the kind wishes today. - went the caption beneath the photo.
