It’s a Girl!

Hello There, George!
Prince William and Duchess Kate — they wed in April 2011 — welcomed their first child, Prince George Alexander Louis, in July 2013. The 8-pound, 6-ounce baby boy became the third in line to the throne upon his arrival.
Prince George’s Christening
The 3-month-old was christened at St. James’ Palace — the same location where Prince Louis was later baptized — in London in October 2013. Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton each read a lesson during the service, despite not being asked to be Prince George’s godparents.

Oh My, Mia!

Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, William and Kate’s second child, made her debut in May 2015. The little girl’s status as fourth in line to the throne was not overtaken by Prince Louis upon his birth because of a change to the Succession to the Crown Act of 2013.
Princess Charlotte Is Christened
Fewer than 30 guests were invited to Princess Charlotte’s christening at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham in July 2015. The 2-month-old’s service was conducted by The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, who also christened her brothers, while official portraits were taken by famed photographer Mario Testino.
Prince George’s First Day of School
The duke and duchess’ eldest arrived for nursery school at Westacre Montessori School in Norfolk in January 2016. The 2-year-old’s mother snapped a couple of intimate shots of the baby-faced toddler wearing a backpack and taking in the facilities. George moved on to Thomas’s Battersea in London in September 2017.
Princess Charlotte Goes to School
William and Kate’s only daughter started nursery school in January 2018. The 2-year-old began attending Willcocks Nursery School at Holy Trinity Church in London nearby the family’s Kensington Palace home. “Charlotte will be attending five days a week in the mornings only,” a source told
Us at the time.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed their third child, son Louis Arthur Charles, in the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital in London — where both his siblings were delivered — in April 2018. The prince made his debut on the same day as his birth, when his parents took him out onto the steps of the hospital. Prince William brought Prince George and Princess Charlotte to meet their brother, and the little guy was on his way home with his mother just seven hours after she delivered him.
Big Sister, Little Brother
Prince Louis posed alongside his sister in his first official photos, released in May 2018, just weeks after his birth. Duchess Kate snapped the pics when her baby boy was 3 days old. In one of the shots, taken on the princess’ birthday, Charlotte holds her brother and gives him a sweet kiss on the forehead.
Proud Niece and Nephew
Prince George and Princess Charlotte acted as pageboy and bridesmaid, respectively, at their uncle Harry’s May 2018 nuptials to Duchess Meghan (née Markle). The young royals stole the show, naturally, with the princess sticking her tongue out at photographers, mirroring an image of the groom when he was a boy. Their newborn brother, Louis, did not attend the festivities.
Another Little Tindall!
Zara and Mike welcomed their second child, a daughter named Lena Elizabeth (in honor of Queen Elizabeth), in June 2018. Buckingham Palace revealed that the little girl weighed 9 pounds, 3 ounces, upon arrival. The queen’s granddaughter previously suffered a miscarriage in 2016.
Prince Louis Gets Christened With His Siblings by His Side
The littlest prince was christened at Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace in July 2018. This was the first time the family of five were spotted in public together. Louis, 2 months at the time, wore the same Royal Christening Robe — made in 1841 — his older siblings donned upon their christenings. Princess Charlotte cracked onlookers up when she sassed photographers at the event, telling them: “You’re not coming.”
