Prince Louis has gotten so big!
Compared to previous years, we didn’t see much of the royal family in 2020 due to the cancellation of public events necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic. So it was a rare occasion to see the entire Cambridge fam – the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge alongside their three children – photographed together at an event today.
Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 5, and Prince Louis, 2, attended a special performance of The National Lottery’s Pantoland at The Palladium in honour of frontline workers and their families. The event, which had socially distant seating, marked their first official royal engagement together as a family of five.
According to the Kensington Royal Instagram account: “Before the performance, The Duke delivered a short speech to thank those across the country for the sacrifices they have made to keep the country operating and to support their communities throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. During the interval, The Duke and Duchess also met a small number of key worker families to hear more about their experiences over the past year, before popping backstage to thank the cast and crew.”
It’s been a busy week for Kate and William, who just returned from a cross-country train tour of the U.K., where they met with frontline workers and their families. (Check out Kate Middleton’s excellent choice of outwear for the occasion.)
This is likely to be one of the last times we see the Cambridges in 2020. The royal family won’t be spending Christmas at Sandringham House as they have done in past years, so there won’t be the annual (and much photographed) family walk to church.
