What will Prince William and Kate Middleton be celebrating tomorrow?
The Queen has now come out of official royal mourning for Prince Philip, the day after her 95th birthday. But hers is not the only royal birthday this month, as on April 23, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s youngest child, Prince Louis, will turn 3 years old!
The Cambridges will no doubt be preparing a wonderful family day for their son to mark this huge occasion and if history is anything to go by, Kate will be particularly involved.

The Duchess of Cambridge previously revealed during an appearance on Mary Berry's A Berry Royal Christmas in 2019 that she enjoys making her children’s birthday cakes - no matter how long they take!
"I love making the cake. It's become a bit of a tradition that I stay up until midnight with ridiculous amounts of cake mix and icing and I make far too much. But I love it," she said.
And that’s not all! As April 23 also marks St George’s Day, the day of the Patron Saint of England.

For each of the Patron Saints Days across the UK, the Royal Family, including William and Kate usually share a special post on social media.
Just last month for St David’s Day, they shared a beautiful picture taken during their visit to Wales last year, which showed the couple in front of Cardiff Castle bearing the Welsh flag.
It may be that royal fans will get to see multiple special posts from William and Kate tomorrow as they celebrate both these significant occasions.
