The Duchess of Cambridge, 38, released photos of Prince Louis playing with rainbow paints in celebration of his second birthday at Anmer Hall on their Norfolk estate. Kate showed off her impressive photography skills but it was a post the day after his birthday that got royal fans talking after the Duchess broke from her usual tradition of sharing images of the young royals. Royal expert Omid Scobie noted Kate hit a royal first with a relatable post of Louis smearing paint across his face with the familiar social media caption: "Instagram vs reality."
Speaking on ABC's HeirPod, Mr Scobie said: "Across the country in the UK, children have been drawing rainbows, pictures and multi-coloured pictures and sticking them in the windows of their homes to show support for the NHS and so Louis had done his hand painting.
"There was this great outtake that Kensington Palace shared the day after the birthday where little Louis was rubbing the paint all over his face."
Co-host Maggi Rulli added: "Another good moment that really showed this realness, I think, right now and I think any parent with little kids can probably relate to seeing Louis with paint all over his face.
"I also love that Instagram post because they actually use the words 'Instagram vs Reality' which I don't think I've ever seen in a royal post before."
