The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s three children have experienced many sweet milestones as they’ve grown up, but there’s one that Prince Louis has yet to experience: his first royal tour. And we might see that happen this spring.
Louis has made a few public appearances, including his Buckingham Palace debut at Trooping the Colour in 2019 and his first Christmas church service in 2021, but he has yet to travel abroad with his parents and siblings on an official visit.
The royals’ overseas travel has been halted for much of the last two years due to the pandemic. The Duke of Cambridge recently visited Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and the Duchess of Cambridge will travel to Copenhagen, Denmark, for two days next week.
This spring, Prince William and Kate are expected to embark on a Caribbean tour to commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
It’s unclear whether the couple will be joined by their children, as this will depend on whether the visit occurs during school hours. Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince George, eight, are in Year 4 and 2 at Thomas’s Battersea School in south west London, respectively, while Louis is at Willcocks Nursery School in Kensington.
Prince George, on the other hand, made his tour debut in Australia and New Zealand in 2014 at the age of eight months.
When the tot met his namesake George the bilby at Taronga Zoo in Sydney, he stole the show and was even given his own soft toy, which he immediately adored.
In 2016, Prince William and Kate were joined by their eldest children on a visit to Canada, where Princess Charlotte, then 16 months old, made her royal tour debut.
The young royals had a good time at a children’s party in Victoria, British Columbia, where the Princess said her first public words, “Pop!” as she ran towards a balloon arch.
In 2017, George and Charlotte joined their parents on a trip to Germany and Poland.
