Prince Louis Shares His Birthday Tomorrow with *This* Major British Celebration

Friday is a big day for the Cambridges. Not only will the family be celebrating Prince Louis’s third birthday, but it’s also one of England's national holidays.

Yup, on April 23rd, the youngest child of Kate Middleton and Prince William will officially be three years old. In addition, the country will also be celebrating St. George's Day, a national holiday remembering England’s patron saint.

While we’re not sure exactly how the family will be celebrating Louis’s milestone, we have a feeling it will be rather low-key like last year (especially since the family is still mourning the death of Prince Philip). For his second birthday, the festivities took place at the couple’s country estate in Sandringham (aka Anmer Hall), where William, Middleton and their three children—Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis—spent most of quarantine.

However, knowing the Duchess of Cambridge, we’re sure she will make the day special with handmade cakes, rainbow art projects or even a family photo shoot.

Louis isn’t the only one celebrating a birthday this week. In fact, his Gan-Gan, Queen Elizabeth, rang in her 95th “privately” on Wednesday. To mark the occasion, the official Royal Family Instagram account shared a photo of the 95-year-old smiling during a previous engagement. Unfortunately, it wasn’t an official portrait like we’ve gotten in the past.

Two birthdays and a national holiday? What a busy week.
