Prince Louis prepares to celebrate his first birthday

UK News | Published:

The youngest member of the Cambridge family was born on April 23 2018.

Prince Louis of Cambridge is about to celebrate his first birthday.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s third and youngest child reaches his  milestone on Tuesday.

Prince Louis Arthur Charles arrived at 11.01am, weighing 8lb 7oz, on April 23 2018 – patriotic St George’s Day.

He is fifth in line to the throne, a great-grandchild of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh and a younger sibling of Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Louis made his debut in Kate’s arms as his proud parents showed him off to the world on the steps of the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London, just hours after he was born.

Louis, who appears to have inherited the brown Middleton eyes from Kate’s side of the family, was pictured with his wider family, including the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall in photos released to mark Charles’s 70th birthday in November.

Later the same month, Kate revealed as she met the public during a visit to Leicester University: “Louis’ getting bigger. I can’t believe he’s seven months now.

“He’s getting a big boy.”

Sporting a grin, the prince was last pictured about four months ago when he was surrounded by his siblings and parents in the grounds of Anmer Hall in Norfolk for the family’s official Christmas card.

In March, Kate revealed on a visit to a children’s centre that Louis, then about 11 months old, was “bombing around” on a walker.

“He just wants to pull himself up all the time. He’s got these little walkers and is bombing around on them,” she told a fellow parent.
