A short four months ago, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge added a fifth member to their adorable family, baby Prince Louis. Royal watchers were over the moon as he made his public debut on April 23 outside the Lindo Wing, and again at his christening in July – but when will we see the little one again? According to HELLO!’s own royal correspondent, Emily Nash, it will likely be in a special portrait.
During a Royal Watch Facebook Live with Emily, the expert told HELLO!: “There are no big family outings that we’re aware of in the next few months – no Trooping the Colour, nothing like that. We often see them around Christmas. The family quite often sends out a Christmas card or there’s some sort of image of them and I think we’d all like to see the Cambridges as a family of five. Perhaps wearing some festive jumpers!”
That would be quite a treat to see Britain’s beloved royal clan posing together for a festive photo around the holidays, right before the entire Royal Family descends on Sandringham for their annual Christmas Day church service (it will be Meghan Markle’s first as an official royal!) There’s also a possibility that Louis will star in his own special portraits to mark a major milestone. At six months old, Princess Charlotte posed for adorable photos taken by mom, and perhaps Kate will decide to do the same for her newest bundle of joy – after all, it must be hard to keep this sweet smile private!
Conversely, a celebratory event could also bring the little one out to play. “The children’s grandfather has a very big birthday coming up. Prince Charles is turning 70 on 14 November so it could be an opportunity for all the family to get together, who knows? There are reports of a big party, I’m sure there will be big celebrations.”
While part of the excitement of these royal outings can be the surprise, anticipation is certainly high for the Cambridges’ second outing as a family of five. And while we don’t know exactly when this will happen, some members of the fivesome will be out in their finest for Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding on Oct. 12. Duchess Kate is expected to return to royal duties sometime in October, and is expected to don a dazzling tiara for the state banquet marking Prince Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands’ official visit on Oct. 23 and 24.
