Will Prince Louis be making his public debut next week?

We sure hope so!

Just last week we were treated to rare photographs and footage of the Cambridge family exploring the interactive garden Duchess Catherine had co-designed for the Chelsea Garden Show.
And, while of course Prince George, 5, and Princess Charlotte, 4, were as adorable as always, it was the photographs that showed how grown up Prince Louis, 1, is that really got to us!
Since his birth last year, photos of Prince Louis have been few and far between, still too young to make any official public appearances, so the rare sight of him last week and the gorgeous photographs taken by Kate and shared to mark his 1st birthday in April were a treat.
But could he finally be making his official public debut this next week? All signs point to yes!

Saturday 8th June will see the Queen's birthday parade held in London, known as Trooping the Colour, and it's very likely that little Louis will make his debut on the Buckingham Palace balcony that day, alongside other members of the royal family.
Taking into account that his older sister, Princess Charlotte, whose birthday is a mere week after his, made her debut at the same event at the same age, it means there's a high chance we'll see the royal toddler there next Saturday.
Princess Charlotte delighted royal fans at her first Trooping the Colour in 2016, giving the crowd a very royal wave.
The eldest of the Cambridge children however, Prince George, didn't make his debut at the event until he was two, likely because he would've been only 10 months old the previous year.

And it's safe to say that the royal children definitely stole the show at last year's Trooping the Colour.
George, Charlotte and their cousin Savannah Phillips clapped and waved on the balcony as the planes flew overhead and of course there was the hilarious moment when Savannah clearly thought George was being too noisy, as she covers his mouth with one hand and stares at the camera.

Last year's Trooping the Colour also marked Duchess Meghan's first, and there are talks she may make a surprise appearance for the event this year, her first public appearance since introducing her and Prince Harry's son Archie Harrison to the world.
While Trooping the Colour is held to celebrate the Queen's birthday, her actual day of birth is April 21st, this year turning 93!
It's common for monarchs to hold their birthday parades in the British summer if their birthdays fall either side of the season, as the weather is likely to be less temperamental.
