Prince Louis has yet to make his public debut at a wedding as a page boy or go on a royal tour abroad. The youngest son of Kate and Prince William is not known to have taken part in any bridal party so far.
The little royal was born on April 23, 2018 – less than a month before the nuptials of Meghan and Prince Harry at St George’s Chapel.
And he was six months old in October 2018, when yet another royal couple, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, tied the knot in Windsor.
Given his young age, Prince Louis did not attend these ceremonies but likely stayed behind with the Cambridges’ trusted nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo.
On the other hand, Princess Charlotte and Prince George attended both weddings as flower girl and page boy.
The little Cambridges debuted in these roles in May 2017, when their aunt Pippa Middleton got married to James Matthews.
Two more royal weddings took place between 2019 and 2020 which Prince Louis could have attended.
On May 18, 2019, Lady Gabriella Windsor and Thomas Kingston got married at St George’s Chapel in front of several senior royals.

However, Kate, Prince William and their children were notably absent, as the Duke of Cambridge had a prior commitment to attend as president of the FA.
On July 17, 2020, Princess Beatrice tied the knot with her beau Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi after having pushed back their wedding date, initially set for May 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
While the little Cambridges would have likely played a role in the wedding planned without COVID-19 restrictions, they could not do so during the intimate ceremony held at the Royal Chapel for just a handful of guests.
Unlike George and Charlotte, Prince Louis has also yet to debut on the royal stage when it comes to royal trips.
Seven-year-old Prince George first travelled abroad on an official royal tour in 2014, when he was just nine months old.
At the time, he accompanied his mother and father to Australia and New Zealand.
Princess Charlotte, who is now six, joined her parents and brother on a royal tour aged 16 months.
During the Cambridges’ tour to Canada in 2016, little Charlotte was seen playing with balloons during a reception and was even heard speaking in public for the first time.
Kate and William have carried out only a few visits abroad since the birth of Louis.
Just two months after Louis’s birth, Prince William undertook a key tour to Jordan, Israel and Palestine.
Kate, who was on maternity leave, remained at home with her three children.
The first joint tour carried out by the future Prince and Princess of Wales after the birth of Prince Louis came in October 2019.
Then, the couple travelled to Pakistan without their children – with their eldest son and daughter attending classes at Thomas’s Battersea.
Just weeks before the first national lockdown was enforced in March last year, Kate and William travelled to Ireland – once again without their children.
The pandemic and the travel ban that followed has had a major impact on the royal diary and likely disrupted plans for more trips abroad for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
