KATE Middleton and Prince William today shared an adorable pic of Prince Louis' face covered in paint and joked 'Insta v Reality'.
The toddler was snapped playing with paint by mum Kate to celebrate his second birthday – but the photography session appeared to go slightly awry with the cheeky toddler then plastering the colours all over his face.

The adorable photographs were shared this morning on social media with Kensington Palace joking "Instagram Vs Reality".
And the royals thanked fans for their "lovely messages" on the little boy's second birthday.
The fifth-in-line to the throne had started painting to make a rainbow poster to thank the NHS for fighting on the frontlines against coronavirus.
His artwork will go in the window at home as the nation again joins forces at 8pm tonight to clap NHS staff and carers.
Louis was snapped earlier this month by his mum Kate.
The young prince, in blue and white check shirt, proudly shows off his colourfully messy hands.
He got creative in the garden of Anmer Hall, Norfolk.
Louis will celebrate his birthday with parents Wills and Kate and siblings George, six, and Charlotte, four.
No other family or friends will be allowed to visit or join a birthday party due to lockdown rules.
But his grandparents Prince Charles and Camilla made sure to wish the little boy a happy birthday.
Writing on Twitter, Clarence House said: "A very Happy Birthday to Prince Louis, who turns two today."
They shared an adorable photo of the little boy getting a hug from his grandpa, 71-year-old Charles.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are home schooling their three children, as well as spending time baking together.
Give now to The Sun's NHS appeal
BRITAIN’s four million NHS staff are on the frontline in the battle against coronavirus.
But while they are helping save lives, who is there to help them?
The Sun has launched an appeal to raise £1MILLION for NHS workers.
The Who Cares Wins Appeal aims to get vital support to staff in their hour of need.
We have teamed up with NHS Charities Together in their urgent Covid-19 Appeal to ensure the money gets to exactly who needs it.
The Sun is donating £50,000 and we would like YOU to help us raise a million pounds, to help THEM.
No matter how little you can spare, please donate today here
Kate said: “It’s been ups and downs, like a lot of families.
“The children have got such stamina, I don’t know how.
“They have had a lovely time but it is amazing how much you can cram into one day. It gets a bit hectic with a two-year-old.”
Join our George Cross campaign for NHS staff
We are urging Sun readers to sign a petition calling for our NHS staff to be awarded the George Cross.
We are backing a proposal by Lord Ashcroft to honour our health heroes with the gallantry gong given for acts of bravery that did not take place in battle.
A No10 spokesman said: “The NHS is doing a fantastic job and the nation will want to find a way to say thank you when we have defeated this virus.”
SAS hero Andy McNab added: “The award of a George Cross would show an emotional appreciation.”
We are asking our readers to please sign the petition below.
