Little Prince Louis is already strutting around!

In adorable new photos shared on Sunday, the 12-month-old can be seen marching around his mother Kate Middleton‘s “Back to Nature” garden — a woodland-themed garden in partnership with designers, Andrée Davies, 55, and Adam White, 45, — that she has been working on with the intention of creating a fun place for families to experience a natural environment together and enjoy the relaxing benefits of nature.

Also in the photos, Kate, along with Prince William and their three children, Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 4 and Louis can be seen playing and exploring the garden together ahead of its big reveal.

Little Louis, who wore his brother’s striped hand-me-down shorts from Spanish brand Neck and Neck, can even be seen on the swing that Kate also playfully enjoyed just a few days ago when giving a sneak peek at her plans for the garden.

The swing, which hands from the garden’s centerpiece, a tree house, was included with hopes to encourage “creative play and discovery for all generations.”

In another photo, siblings George, who was dressed in a H&M polo shirt, and Charlotte, who wore a floral dress by Rachel Riley, dip their feet in a creek that runs through the garden.

Kate is known to regularly escape the bustle of London to enjoy the clean air and vibrant woods near her parents’ home in Bucklebury with her kids so that the royal children can enjoy the outdoors.

“Spending quality time together is such an important aspect of family life and for me, as a mother, it is the simple family moments like playing outside together that I cherish,” Kate wrote in a heartwarming letter last year.

Last week, Kate revealed that her youngest was “keeping us on our toes,” making people wonder if he was walking already.

“I turned around the other day and he was at the top of the slide — I had no idea!” she said during an outing to a War II code-breaking center in London on Tuesday.
