Kate Middleton and Prince William’s children were there to celebrate during Platinum Jubilee weekend. Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4, made multiple appearances during the four-day-long celebration. However, a commentator says the historic nature made it a “one-off.”

Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis’ Platinum Jubilee weekend

Kate and William’s children started off Platinum Jubilee weekend with a royal first. During Trooping the Colour, Queen Elizabeth II’s annual birthday parade, they made their carriage procession debut

Later, they stood on the Buckingham Palace balcony alongside their parents and other working royals. Louis memorably made facial expressions that went viral. He also had a conversation with Queen Elizabeth.

George and Charlotte had their first-ever royal engagement when they visited Wales with Kate and William. Then the two joined their parents for the Platinum Party at the Palace, a star-studded concert outside Buckingham Palace. 

Finally, on the last day of Platinum Jubilee weekend, the entire Cambridge family watched a pageant. Once again, Louis’ antics, which Mike Tindall said were sugar-fueled, stole the show. After one more balcony appearance with Queen Elizabeth, George, Charlotte, and Louis’ Platinum Jubilee weekend came to a close. 

A commentator says not to expect many more appearances from Prince William and Kate Middleton’s kids, Platinum Jubilee a ‘one-off’

Simply because Kate and William’s children were involved in the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, a royal commentator says that’s no indication of the future. Per Express, royal correspondent Victoria Murphy called it a “real one-off” on Mail Plus’ Palace Confidential podcast.

“I think the fact that we saw so much of them really [sic] emphasized the fact that this was a unique event, it was a unique historic moment,” she said. 

Murphy went on, calling Platinum Jubilee weekend, which celebrated 70 years of Queen Elizabeth’s reign, “a real, kind of, family event.” Now, she said, William and Kate will have returned to keeping the kids “off-limits.” 

“Generally, the Cambridges’ policy with their kids is completely behind doors, off-limits.

“They’re keen for them to have a childhood where they can just not worry about the spotlight,” she said. “I think that’s absolutely going to continue to be the case.”

It’s back to business as usual for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Since Platinum Jubilee weekend, both William and Kate have resumed their regular duties. Although with more family milestones coming up, there’s the possibility of getting another glimpse of George, Charlotte, and Louis. 

Next up is William’s birthday. He will turn 40 on June 21, 2022. And, in what’s become something of a tradition in recent years, a photo of him, likely taken by Kate, will probably be released. In years past, William and Kate have shared previously unseen family photos. Meaning that there’d be another glimpse of George, Charlotte, and Louis after Platinum Jubilee weekend. 

Something similar could happen for George’s birthday on July 22, 2022. To mark the occasion, Kate and William are likely to release a photo of their oldest child, who is third in the line of succession, as they’ve previously done.
