On April 23, 2018, the world was finally relieved of its great anticipation - the Royal Baby was born! People waited for months on end to see just if the little one would be a “he” or a “she.”
The proud parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton, kept all the secrets concerning the child rather tight-lipped, keeping all guessing. Thankfully, the baby arrived happily and healthily. A precious little boy named Louis Arthur Charles joined the ranks and immediately found himself fifth in line to the throne.
This makes child number three for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Their other two children, Prince George (4) and Princess Charlotte (2), were quite anxious and excited for their little sibling to arrive. Just hours after his birth, the big brother and big sister had the opportunity to meet the little prince for the first time.
Everyone wondered just how the children would adjust to life with a baby. For George, he knows exactly how to handle a baby and is a pro at the “big brother” role. Charlotte, on the other hand, had to pass down her title of “baby of the family” down to little Louis.
Sources have weighed in on the feelings the children had shortly after meeting their baby brother for the first time, and it’s just as you would imagine. “George and Charlotte were with the baby for 25 minutes and were very excited to meet their new sibling. It’s unlikely they’ll be asleep when William and Kate arrive home. They’ll be up all night, excited about their new brother.”
Now that they’ve had a little bit of time to spend with Louis, I can only imagine how the three are getting along. It’s been rumored that long before Louis was born, Charlotte was getting in plenty of practice by caring for her baby dolls. I bet she’s been right by her mother’s side from the moment she came home from the hospital, eagerly excelling in her role as big sis.
George, on the other hand, is likely thrilled to add a playmate to the mix. In no time at all, the three will be the best of friends, ready to take on anything their royal life may throw their way.
