The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have released a new picture of Prince Louis to celebrate his third birthday and mark his first day at nursery school.

The picture was taken at Kensington Palace by the duchess, before Louis set off for Willcocks Nursery for the first time on Wednesday.

In the picture, he's smartly dressed in shorts, a shirt and a jumper, and is sitting on a red frog bicycle with a rucksack on.
