Prince Louis Broke This Royal Record When He Was Born

Prince Louis of Cambridge delighted the world when he was born on April 23, 2018. The tiny royal prince joined his older siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte as the third child of Duchess Kate Middleton and Prince William. However, though Prince Louis is nearly one year old –we’ve seen very little of the tiny tot in public.

Though there have been photos of the tiny prince’s Christening and adorable snaps of him hanging with his grandfather, Prince Charles at his 70th birthday– much of Prince Louis’ first year of life has remained a mystery. However, the prince did break one massive royal record when he was born.

Prince Louis broke this royal record when he will born

When Duchess Kate Middleton gave birth to Prince Louis Arthur Charles on April 23, 2018, at 11:01 am at St. Mary’s Hospital’s Lido Wing –the baby prince weighed in at 8 pounds 7 ounces making him the heaviest Cambridge baby. The Cambridge’s second son was one ounce larger than his brother, Prince George’s birth weight which was 8 pounds 6 ounces and much bigger than Princess Charlotte who weighed in at 8 pounds 3 ounces..

The little prince, who now sits fifth in line for the throne is the heaviest newborn heir to the throne in at least 100 years. However, Queen Elizabeth’s sixth- great-grandchild is certainly not the largest royal baby in modern times. When the queen’s granddaughter Zara Tindall gave birth to Lena Elizabeth (who is also Prince Harry’s goddaughter) on June 18, 2018 —the baby weighed in at a whopping 9 pounds 3 ounces.

Will Baby Sussex break Prince Louis’ birth weight record?

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle are set to welcome their first child in late April or early May, and Baby Sussex could give Prince Louis a run for his money. After all– the prince and the duchess’ unborn baby is already pretty big.

In early Feb. 2019, the duchess and the prince attended the Endeavour Fund Awards and Prince Harry commented on the size of his unborn child. The red-headed prince quipped while looking at his stunning wife, “there’s a heavy baby in her.” It sounds like Baby Sussex is getting all of the nutrients that he or she needs, and they are healthy and right on schedule.

Why is Baby Sussex already so big?

Though they are slim –Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are pretty tall people. The prince is 6’1″ while the former actress stands at 5’7″. The couple’s above average height against the duchess’ svelte figure means that Baby Sussex could be above height and weight when he or she is born.

However, the unborn royal could simply be fooling us all. According to Dr. Kyrin Dunston who host the podcast Her Brilliant Health Radio –bump size is also depended on the size of a woman’ bone structure and the shape and size of her pelvis and rib cage. We’ll just have to wait and see if Baby Sussex can break Prince Louis’ royal record.
