Prince Louis's 1st Birthday Photos

Monday, April 22, 2019

As anticipated, William and Kate released photos to mark Prince Louis's first birthday tomorrow, and as anticipated, they are darling. He is such a handsome (and striking!) baby. The pictures of Louis from Charles's 70th birthday gave us a hint of bold brows, but these birthday photos certainly place them front and center. Louis has the signature Cambridge cheeks, but of all Kate's children, I think he is the most strikingly Middleton, in no small part thanks to these brows and dark eyes. I see a lot of Mike Middleton here. 

As with many past pictures, Kate took these herself, at the family's Anmer Hall home in Norfolk, where they have been spending their current school break. 

George's school, Thomas's Battersea, was on holiday from late March (the 24th or so?) to April 24th. The school schedule consists of a "Lent" term that begins in early January and extends to the last week of March (with a mid-term break halfway through), and a long break from the last week of March until April 24th (which the Cambridges are currently enjoying, and during which time Kate took these snaps in Norfolk), and then a Summer term that will stretch from April 24th to July 5th (again, with a mid-term in there during the last week of May), and then a long summer holiday starting on the 5th of July until the 5th of September. Charlotte's school tracks a nearly identical schedule. This calendar  is confusing for some (mostly us Americans), but I think it's quite a brilliant schedule actually.

For comparison, George and Charlotte's first birthday photos. :)  Happy Monday, all.
