Cambridges-Christmas-card-2018

The Duchess of Cambridge has many different roles, but her most important one to date is mum! On top of her busy schedule as a full-time royal, Kate always has time for her young children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. She became a mother for the third time in April, welcoming a second baby boy with husband Prince William.

Kate will be able to spend lots of quality time with her three children over the holidays; Prince George has now finished school until the New Year, while Princess Charlotte has also broken up from nursery for Christmas, so the youngsters will be at home with their baby brother.

Royal fans got their latest glimpse at Kate’s close bond with her children when the annual family Christmas cardwas released on Friday. It was the first to feature Prince Louis, and the seven-month-old looked adorable alongside his mum, dad and older siblings in a photo captured at their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall, this autumn.

Let’s take a look at some of Kate’s best mummy moments…

New portraits of the Cambridges were released to celebrate Prince Charles’ 70th birthday in November. The pictures, which were taken by royal photographer Chris Jackson at Clarence House, showed Louis bouncing up and down in his mum Kate‘s arms, as well as playing with Grandpa Wales by reaching over and making a grab at his nose.

Kate isn’t the only royal besotted with her baby boy. This portrait, shared to celebrate Prince Charles’ 70th birthday, showed the Prince of Wales playing with his youngest grandchild while his proud mum looked on.

Here, Kate and her youngest are pictured at Louis’ christening. The official portrait was taken by Matt Porteous, who was asked by the family to take some informal shots for their personal family album. But this image, which showed Louis laughing hysterically, was just too sweet not to share with royal fans.

The Cambridges also posed for more formal portraits with other members of the royal family, including Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, in the Morning Room at Clarence House after the christening service.

We love this photo of Kate looking absolutely besotted by her little boy. Meanwhile Prince William took charge of George and Charlotte, who were on their best behaviour.

While on maternity leave with baby Prince Louis, Kate has enjoyed spending as much time as possible with her little ones. The Duchess enjoyed a day out with George and Charlotte at the polo in June 2018, where they watched William take part in a charity match. Kate looked totally relaxed and carefree on this unofficial engagement.

Prince William and Kate had a brief moment of calm together with their children amid the excitement of Prince Harry and Meghan’s royal wedding in May 2018.

Kate doted on her youngest child Prince Louis as she introduced him to the world and waiting press, on the steps of the Lindo Wing. The palace later released a statement to announce: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son Louis Arthur Charles. The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge.”

The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted mentioning to her husband that their baby son, Prince Louis, might be a little chilly, and so the pair went back inside to protect him from the cold! The youngster was also wearing his big sister’s knitted baby cap, as well as a blanket used by both of his older siblings.

As guests made their way out of the ceremony, Kate held on to two-year-old Charlotte’s hand as she patted George’s head. Ahead of the wedding, Kate told guests at their garden party that she really hoped her children would behave. Photo: WireImage
