For someone who was born a week ago, he already has lots of fans. Kate’s third child, Prince Louis will not attend Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding next month, a royal expert has stated. However, the rest of his family, Kate, William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte are all expected to be there on the big day dedicated solely to Meghan and Harry.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed a baby boy into the world on Monday at 11.01am weighing 8lbs 7oz. There has been lots of speculation whether he will be in attendance at his uncle’s royal wedding to Meghan on May 19th.
That would mark the first ever royal engagement for him after his parents Kate and William showed off their new proud addition to the family on the steps of Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital following his birth.
However, royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams “strongly doubts” baby Prince Louis will attend the royal wedding as the Duke and Duchess will want the focus to be on Meghan and Harry.
Richard Fitzwilliams told Express.co.uk: “I very strongly doubt the royal baby will be at the royal wedding.
“Rumours to this effect are mischievous, that his nanny could bring her and so forth.
“Absolutely nothing must detract from the focus on the happy couple and this would.
“Expect the official photographs of the baby which come out roughly a month after to be postponed a while too.”
Usually, royal babies are kept from the public eye until their christening, where we can catch another glimpse at the royal.
The baby has already had plenty of visitors come and see him, including Pippa Middleton, who was spotted leaving Kensington Palace on Tuesday.
Pippa went to visit her new nephew after the little one was brought home from the hospital on Monday night.
Kate’s sister was seen leaving the royal residence wearing a pastel pink sweater and coat as she drove away in a black SUV.
The new auntie looks overjoyed after her visit, as she smiled to the photographers as while leaving.
Kate’s mother Carole Middleton has also been helping the Duchess and was spotted shopping baby supplies at a nearby Boots.
An insider has described Carole’s help as “invaluable” to Kate as she has also lent a hand in taking care of Prince George, who attend school, and Princess Charlotte, who attends nursery.
We also expect a visit from the baby’s grandfather, Prince Charles, but he has been quite busy lately, with all his royal engagements such as the Anzac Day Service on behalf of the Queen in France last Wednesday. He is, after all, the heir to the throne.
Following the birth of Prince Louis, the Prince of Wales joked he does not know how he will keep up his third grandchild alongside Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Charles in a statement said: “We are both so pleased at the news.
“It is a great joy to have another grandchild, the only trouble is I don’t know how I am going to keep up with them.”
