Prince William and Kate Middleton, despite their royal status, prioritize giving their children a normal upbringing. They became parents for the first time in 2013 when they welcomed their son Prince George, who is now 10 years old. A few years later, they joyfully announced the arrival of their daughter Princess Charlotte, who is now 8 years old. Their family was completed with the birth of Prince Louis, who is now 5 years old, in 2018. Although the young members of the royal family have already taken on public duties, William and Kate strive to keep most aspects of their lives away from the spotlight. Their main focus is on instilling important values in their children and raising them to be well-rounded individuals within their community. Kate once shared, “My parents instilled in me the values of kindness, respect, and honesty, which have played a crucial role in shaping my life. William and I are committed to passing on these values to our children as they grow up, as we believe they are just as important as academic or athletic success.” In a conversation with U.K. radio host Roman Kemp in February 2023, Kate discussed the challenges of modern parenting, acknowledging that raising children in today’s world is a demanding task. She emphasized that it is not about the quantity of toys or vacations, but rather about nurturing children in a meaningful way. It’s about ensuring they have the right emotional support from the adults in their lives.” On May 6, 2023, all three young royals attended their grandfather King Charles’ coronation. As the second in line to the throne, Prince George played a significant role in the ceremony as a Page of Honor for his grandfather. Princess Charlotte looked mature and elegant wearing a sparkling headpiece that matched her mother’s tiara for the occasion. As for their younger sibling, Prince Louis once again proved to be the most meme-worthy royal, creating several hilarious moments throughout the historic day. The family of five currently resides in Adelaide Cottage in Windsor after relocating from Kensington Palace in London in the summer of 2022. Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis all attend Lambrook School in Winkfield Row, Berkshire. Let’s dive into some interesting facts about Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children. Their eldest son, George Alexander Louis, was born on July 22, 2013, at St. Mary’s Hospital in London. Being their first child, he became the third in line to the British throne. George shares his first name with his great-great-grandfather, King George VI, and received congratulatory messages from all over the world, including a note from former President Barack Obama. At the tender age of one, George embarked on a three-week expedition to New Zealand and Australia, accompanying his parents for his inaugural royal duty. During this trip, he had the opportunity to meet 10 other babies at a playdate held at the Blandor Room of Government House. On the 2nd of May, 2015, St. witnessed the joyous arrival of William and Kate’s second child, Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, at St. Mary’s Hospital in London. She became fourth in line to the British throne.The royal couple holds Charlotte’s name in high regard, as it is the feminine version of her grandfather, Prince Charles. Her middle names, Elizabeth and Diana, pay tribute to her late grandmother, Princess Diana, and her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. After Charlotte’s birth, Kate expressed her joy in having a little girl and for George to have a younger sister. She even mentioned that the Queen was one of the family’s first visitors. In late 2017, the exciting news broke that William and Kate were expecting their third child. On April 23, 2018, their son Louis Arthur Charles was born, becoming the fifth in line to the British throne. Just like his older siblings, Louis’ name holds special significance within the family, paying tribute to important figures in their lineage. As a newborn, Louis was described by William as “behaving himself” and sleeping “reasonably well.” Charlotte and George immediately embraced their roles as loving older siblings, as seen in heartwarming photos of them caring for Louis. By the time he reached nine months old, Louis was a cheerful and smiley little boy who had mastered the art of crawling. It didn’t take long for him to start running and keeping up with the other children, keeping the whole family on their toes. Kate shared that Louis was always eager to pull himself up and explore his surroundings. He loved using his little walkers to zoom around, and he even recognized familiar faces from his parents’ cooking books. At the age of three, Louis had an undeniable need for speed, making it challenging for Kate to keep up with him, especially when he was on his little scooter. He also followed in his sister Charlotte’s footsteps by attending preschool at Willcocks Nursery School. Recently, Kate revealed that Louis has developed a love for the outdoors and enjoys lending a hand in the family’s gardening endeavors. He has even taken up growing sunflowers with George and Charlotte, showing great success in his green thumb. Alongside his adorable antics and cheeky personality, Louis has made headlines with his dramatic faces and gestures at the Platinum Jubilee events. Having a new little girl is truly a remarkable experience. I feel extremely fortunate that George now has a little sister. Kate shared that upon returning to Kensington, the Queen was truly overjoyed to see that it was a little girl, and she wasted no time in paying us a visit.
