Prince William and Kate Middleton Could Not Give Prince Louis 1 Royal Experience Because of the Pandemic

Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed Prince Louis, their youngest son, in 2018. When the pandemic struck, Louis was only two years old, and as a result, he missed out on one particular royal experience.

In some way, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic affected almost everyone on the planet. For the royal family, this meant deferring a number of plans while the UK implemented social distancing measures.

What did the Cambridges do during their lockdown?

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as well as their three children, spent the majority of 2020 outside of London. They relocated to their country home, Anmer Hall in Norfolk, England, during the country’s lockdown.

William and Kate, like many others around the world, have taken their royal duties online. They kept promoting their charities, but this time through Zoom.

Their two older children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, were also homeschooled. “Being educated from home is a shock to the system for [them],” a source told Us Weekly at the time. They were easily distracted at first and preferred to play together rather than sit at a computer, but Kate has now established a routine for them…. [She] is primarily responsible for homeschooling and playtimes, but William is also heavily involved.”

Louis will be four years old soon. However, due to the pandemic, he has yet to reach any royal milestones.

According to Express, Louis has yet to accompany his parents on a royal tour abroad. In 2014, when George was less than a year old, he traveled to Australia and New Zealand with his parents. Then, when Charlotte was 16 months old, she was able to accompany her parents on a trip to Canada.

Louis has only attended a few royal events so far, including Trooping the Colour in 2019. Fortunately, as social distancing measures around the world are being relaxed, Louis’ fans may see him travel abroad in the near future.

Both William and Kate have recently traveled to other countries for the first time since the lockdown. Kate went to Denmark, while William went to the United Arab Emirates. Later in March, the couple will travel to the Caribbean, but their children will not accompany them.

Despite being born a year after Louis, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son, Archie, has already gone on a royal tour abroad. When Archie was just a few months old, Harry and Meghan took him to southern Africa in the fall of 2019.

Archie even had the opportunity to meet Archbishop Desmond Tutu, a human rights icon and Nobel Peace Prize winner. “It was only two years ago that he held our son, Archie, while we were in South Africa – ‘Arch and The Arch,’ he had joked, his infectious laughter ringing through the room, relaxing anyone in his presence,” Harry and Meghan said in a statement after Tutu’s death in December 2021.
