Prince Louis, Kate Middleton and Prince William's youngest, celebrated his first birthday yesterday, and the special milestone did not go unnoticed by his aunt and uncle - Meghan Marke and Prince Harry.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex left their nephew a sweet message wishing him 'lots of love' under a sweet Instagram post shared by Kensington Palace.
The heartfelt message, posted from Meghan and Harry's official account (@sussexroyal), reads: "Happy Birthday Louis! Sending lots of love from both of us xo."
The image was part of three sets of photos also shared on Kensington Palace's official Twitter account.

The message from Louis' aunt and uncle comes after rumours of a dreaded rift between Harry and William, with the Daily Mail reporting that the royal brothers were seen not speaking to each other on their way to church on Easter Sunday.
However, it is unlikely the alleged falling out doesn't appear to be the first rift in the family, with Harry feeling 'lonely' and 'bitter' in the past after Kate and Will briefly moved away from London to Amner Hall, a royal biographer has claimed.
The royal couple briefly split from Prince Harry after the Queen gave Prince William and Kate Middleton the Anmer Hall in Norfolk. The move away from Kensington Palace left a then-single Prince Harry feeling 'isolated' and 'bitter' after he had grown close to Kate.
In 2017 book Harry: Life, Loss and Love , Nicholl wrote: “To Harry, it must have felt like he was losing everything.
“At the time, Harry was living in Nottingham Cottage, William and Kate’s former starter home at Kensington Palace.
“Before Prince George’s birth, the trio had lived across the courtyard from each other and Harry was often at Nott Cott, as it was affectionately known.”
She continued: “[Harry] had become very close to Kate, who helped to fill some of the emotional void in his life.
“Harry felt detached, lonely, and ‘rudderless’, and according to a friend he dreaded Sunday nights.”
An insider told Katie: “Harry would often suffer really bad spells of loneliness. He was prone to bouts of feeling very low.
“He felt he had lost his partners in crime, especially William.
“He was happy that his brother was married and had a family, of course, but he missed their friendship and at points he was very, very bitter about it.
