Royal Family Releases Brand-New Photos Of Prince Louis To Celebrate His 1st Birthday


The youngest member of the royal family, Prince Louis, is officially a year old. He was born last year on the 23rd of April 2018, and has celebrated his first birthday. 

Back in September 2017, the royal family announced that Prince William and Kate Middleton, who are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, were expecting a third addition to their family. 

As soon as Prince Louis was born, Kensington Palace made the announcement of his arrival. Not long after, both Prince George and Princess Charlotte went to visit their new baby brother at the hospital. And Kate Middleton left the hospital with little Louis just seven hours after she gave birth. 

The world was immediately taken by the little prince, and both the press and public alike all clamoured for a glimpse of Louis. 

A few weeks after he was born, fans of the royal family got to see a bit of Prince Louis at home with his older sister, Princess Charlotte. 

While he’s still the youngest member of the royal family, he won’t have that title much longer, as he’ll soon pass it off to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby whenever it is born. 

Prince Louis’ birthday is April 23, 2018.

Kensington Palace announced his birth on Instagram with the posting:

“The bulletin has been placed outside Buckingham Palace formally announcing the birth of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s new son. The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101hrs. The baby weighs 8lbs 7oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.”

Prince George and Princess Charlotte, both excited to meet their new brother, were brought to the hospital by their father, Prince William. 

Prince William and Kate Middleton posed for photographs just as they were leaving the hospital. They waved to the crowds that had gathered, and showed off their newborn.  

Prince Louis settled in very quickly, and after only a few days of arriving home at Kensington Palace, Kate took pictures of him with Princess Charlotte. 

It was clear that Princess Charlotte was enjoying being a big sister, despite being only a toddler herself.

In July 2018, a few months after he was born, the royal family turned out for the christening of Prince Louis. 

In November at his grandfather’s 70th birthday, Prince Louis posed for more pictures with his family. Just like his older siblings, Prince Louis looks very happy, making it obvious he’s loved by many people.

For Christmas, Princess William and Kate Middleton released a very cute family photo, where all three children look like they’re having fun and have their unique personalities. 

And now they’ve shared some new photos of Prince Louis after turning a year old.

It looks like Prince Louis is really starting to come into his own. According to his mother Kate, he absolutely loves using little wooden walkers, very similar to his older sister, Charlotte.

For now, Prince Louis is still the youngest royal in the family, but that will all change when his cousin, Baby Sussex is born.

Happy birthday, Prince Louis!
