Only seven hours after his arrival, Prince Louis made his debut to the world outside of St. Mary’s Hospital Lindo Wing. Together, the Duke and Duchess walked outside of the Lindo Wing to introduce their son to the world. With hundreds of cameras surrounding the hospital, the little prince rested peacefully in the arms of his mom.
After their short but iconic debut, the William and Kate returned back outside to take little Louis home to Kensington Palace. Duchess Kate spent the next several days in the Palace while dad William continued to make royal appearances.
Only three days after Prince Louis’ arrival, Duchess Kate snapped some pictures of the newborn prince at home. One photo was of him laying against a pillow and another was of his big sister, Princess Charlotte, kissing his forehead as he rests peacefully against her.
The photos were shared on the Kensington Palace Twitter page and caused a major frenzy! After all, the pictures featured two of the most adored royals.
Since the April 26 photoshoot, Prince Louis has been kept away from the public. Many had wondered if he’d be in attendance at his uncle Harry’s wedding, however, the family decided it was best for the three-week-old to stay home.
Next came Trooping the Colour, the Queen’s honorary birthday celebration. With the whole family in attendance, including the new Duchess of Sussex, fans were hoping for another Prince Louis debut. Sadly, he didn’t make an appearance.
After missing two massive royal events, fans were beyond thrilled to learn that they would see little Louis at his July 9th christening! The Duke and Duchess will be taking all three children to The Chapel Royal, St James’ Palace in London for the youngest prince’s baptism.
Little Louis will be baptized only 11 minutes away from Kensington Palace. Kate took one for the team when the then family of four traveled more than three hours for her to be baptized in Sandringham’s St. Mary Magdalene church in Norfolk- which was the same church Princess Diana was baptized in. Rather than driving three hours with three children until five, the Duchess has decided that an 11-minute drive is much more ideal. Can you blame her?!
Prince Louis will be christened on Monday, July 9th, 2018 at The Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace, London.
