Precisely no one is coping with these 3 new photos of Prince Louis' ridiculously adorable face.

Anyone who says Australia doesn’t need the monarchy anymore clearly hasn’t seen Kate Middleton’s portraits of her very cute kids.

It’s more complicated than that, of course, but for today, let’s put our personal feelings aside and enjoy the wholesomeness that is Prince Louis’ birthday album.

In case you haven’t been keeping track, the young man who was definitely a baby last time we checked is now TWO.

Every year when Kensington Palace shares birthday portraits of the young royals, we’re repeatedly shocked by a) how much they’ve GROWN and b) just how old we are. These latest photos are no exception.

To mark the Prince’s second birthday on April 23, The Duchess of Cambridge shared three never-before-seen photos of her youngest child.

The photos taken at The Duke of Cambridge Prince William and Kate’s Amner Hall home in Norfolk show Prince Louis joyfully finger painting a rainbow artwork in support of Britain’s NHS health workers.

From 'mum look what I made' to 'AH WHY AM I SO CUTE?', the young Prince who is fifth in line for the throne is serving us varied and cute looks that will bring a smile to your face.

Seriously, would you look at those pillowy cheeks?!

Naturally, the internet is eternally grateful for these new photos, with people thanking the royals for thinking of us in these times. Many also pointed out Prince Louis looks a lot like his older brother Prince George at the same age, but with more of the Middleton side in him.

The last time the Cambridge's shared photos of Prince Louis was back December 2019 with the black and white family Christmas card.

Before that, it was this time last year to celebrate his first birthday, when he had precisely two teeth and the thinning comb-over of a middle-aged man.

We simply cannot believe how much of a small human he looks like now.

With spirits low amid the health pandemic - especially in the UK where the coronavirus death toll continues to rise - these beautiful photos of Prince Louis couldn't have come at a better time.

Love or hate the royals, we feel like Kate Middleton looked into our souls and knew these photos of Prince Louis were what we needed to get through another day. We are thankful she delivered.
