The Duchess of Cambridge has given a rare update on Prince Louis during a special day out in London.
Catherine joined parents and children at the Henry Fawcett Children’s Centre on Tuesday, where she took part in a Together Time session, playing with the cute toddlers and chatting to the other mums throughout the visit.
The royal, who is passionate about children’s development and education, appeared to be having a ball playing with the young children and even opened up to one of the other mums about her youngest son Prince Louis.
Hello! reports that Catherine told fellow mum, Kriti, who was there with her nine-month-old son Kameron, that Louis is keeping her on her toes as he approaches his first birthday.
“Louis just wants to pull himself up all the time,” the duchess said. “He has got these little walkers and is bombing around in them.”
Kriti later recalled her chat with Catherine and said: “She took one look at Kameron and said, ‘Oh he wants to go walkies.’ Apparently her son is cruising and she said she was running after him all the time.”
Prince Louis, who is 10 months old, has only been spotted in public twice since he was born, first in his mother’s arms on the hospital steps after his birth and second at his christening. Although the royals have shared a handful of photographs of him over the months, like Prince George and Princess Charlotte before him, he is mainly kept away from the public eye while he’s still young.
While Catherine took some time off from her royal duties after Louis’ birth she’s certainly back into the swing of things now and has had a busy start to the year with a diary packed full of royal engagements.
On Monday (local time) she stepped out with the rest of the royal family to celebrate Commonwealth Day in London and took a style queue from the Queen, standing out in a bright red coat so royal watchers could easily spot her in the crowd.
Arriving at Westminster Abbey with her husband Prince William and in-laws the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Catherine was all smiles as she greeted Meghan with a kiss on the cheek and made her way inside with the Queen, Prince Charles and Camilla.
This year’s event played a special significance across the world as it marked the 70th anniversary of the modern Commonwealth.
The theme of this year’s service was A Connected Commonwealth, which highlighted the special connection between people across the world and the collective values shared.
People from all 53 nations of the commonwealth sat together inside the church for the service where they enjoyed performances from musicians and listened to speakers from across the globe.
