Prince William, 41, just revealed a huge part of Prince Louis's bedtime routine and it's pretty darn sweet.

On Tuesday, May 21, the Prince of Wales hosted a garden party at Buckingham Palace, where he chatted with several guests, including author Rowan Aderyn. At the event, the author gifted Prince William with a copy of her children's book, Homeward.

According to Hello! Magazine, he was deeply moved by the gesture and excited to share the book with his six-year-old son. He stated, "This is so great, so inspirational. I'll read this to Louis tonight at bedtime."

The book follows a boy named Jack, who helps a lady experiencing homelessness. The book title is also based on the Prince of Wales's foundation of the same name, which aims to end homelessness in the U.K. The author is currently a member at the Newport branch, working to fight for the cause alongside the royal.

Now, it's not the first time William mentioned his love for reading to his kids. Back in February 2020, the royal spotted a child reading Julia Donaldson's Room On The Broom, commenting, "I read this to our children all the time," per Daily Mail. And he wasn't kidding. He even got to meet the children's book author and honored her with a CBE, a high achievement that recognizes British authors and writers for their contribution to literature. At the time, he told her: "Do you realize how many parents you have saved at bedtime?"

It was just a month ago that the royal family was celebrating Prince Louis turning six years old. They shared a brand new portrait online, where he was all smiles on his special day.

Here's to hoping Prince Louis enjoyed the book and there's more favorite stories that the Prince of Wales is willing to share.
