Prince William recently shared that he reads bedtime stories to his youngest child, Prince Louis, during a garden party at Buckingham Palace. Despite his wife, Princess Kate, not being present at the event due to ongoing cancer treatment, William greeted attendees and expressed his excitement to read a book given to him by one of his patronages to Louis that evening. The couple also shares two other children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and celebrated Louis’ 6th birthday with a new royal portrait.

In addition to the bedtime story mentioned at the garden party, William previously shared that he reads Julia Donaldson’s Room on the Broom to his children before bed. Louis has become a fan-favorite royal for his candid reactions and funny faces at public events over the years. His engaging personality has won the hearts of many, such as when he downed s’mores at his first engagement and blew out Charlotte’s candle at a Christmas concert.

The royal family’s Christmas Day walk in December 2023 was Kate’s last public appearance before being hospitalized for a planned abdominal surgery the following month. After speculation about her health condition, Kate announced in March that she was undergoing preventative chemotherapy after doctors discovered cancer. She explained that they had been managing the situation privately for the sake of their young family and that she needed time to recover from surgery before starting treatment.

Despite her continued absence from royal duties, Kate has been working on projects such as the Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood, the Shaping Us Campaign, and the Business Taskforce. She is awaiting clearance from her doctors before returning to her official responsibilities. In the meantime, William has been handling public appearances and engagements on his own while supporting Kate and their children during this challenging time. The couple’s dedication to each other and their family has been evident throughout this difficult period.
