Prince Louis, the youngest son of Prince William and Kate Middleton, made his Easter debut on April 9th alongside his parents and older siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The royal family was attending a traditional Easter church outing, marking the first time all three siblings attended the event together.
Wearing a Tie with His Shorts
Louis, who is set to turn 5 later this month, made a lasting impression with his attire for the event. He wore blue shorts and knee socks, paired with a blazer and a tie that featured a bicycle print.
This was not the first time Louis wore something eye-catching to an event, as he previously wore a similar print for his third birthday portrait taken by Kate on his first day of nursery school.
While Louis opted for shorts, his older brother George wore a suit and tie for the Easter event. However, it’s common for upper-class boys in Britain to wear shorts until they are around 8 years old, just as George did before switching to suits in recent years.
The Well-mannered Prince
During the church service, the siblings showcased their impeccable manners and greeted the pastor with a handshake.
George and Charlotte have already become familiar with royal events and joined the family at various occasions. The events include the annual Christmas walk, a memorial service for their great-grandfather Prince Philip, and the funeral for their great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth.
Prince Louis, on the other hand, made his public debut at the family’s Christmas Day church outing a few months ago, but he made a big impression when he joined the family to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee.
The royal siblings rode in their first public horse-drawn carriage ride for Trooping the Colour and even went viral for Prince Louis’ adorable antics.
It was recently announced that Prince George would serve as one of King Charles‘ four pages at the May 6 coronation. All three of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children are expected to make the journey from Westminster Abbey back to Buckingham Palace in the carriage procession following the coronation.
