When is Prince Louis’ birthday?

Prince Louis Arthur Charles, who is formally known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge, will turn a year old on April 23, 2019.

Like his siblings, he was born at St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London. At the time of his birth, the palace announced that he weighed in at 8 pounds, 7ounces.

The youngest of the Cambridge children had his first big celebration on July 9, 2018, when he was baptized in the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace.

So will he soon have another party in his honor?

Hello Magazine noted that it’s definitely safe to assume that Middleton is going to be throwing a birthday party for Louis because first birthdays, inparticular, are very special to her.

Middleton’s mother, Carole, who owns the party supply company Party Pieces, spoke about why celebrating first birthdays are extra important to her daughter.

“My children have all worked for the business. Catherine started the First Birthday brand — she chose the products and looked after all the imagery and the catalog production,” Carole explained. “Because they all grew up with me working, Party Pieces has been very much part of our lives and what we talked about. I still ask advice and say ‘What do you think of this?'” 

What started out as a small family business that Kate and her siblings helped get off the ground has become a huge success and is estimated to be worth around $50 million today.

Are William and Middleton planning on having more children?

Another reason many believe that the duke and duchess will likely throw a big party for Louis is because it would be the last first birthday they’ll be able to throw for their children. However, we shouldn’t close the door on the idea of the pair having more kids.

One of William’s friends recently revealed that “He would love to emulate his grandmother and have four children, and he would be very happy if it was another girl.”

In addition, a source told Closer Weekly that Middleton wants four children as well telling the publication that “Kate’s always said she wanted four children.”
