Prince Louis , two, is the youngest of Kate, Duchess of Cambridge , 39, and Prince William’s three children and will celebrate his third birthday on April 23. Louis and his siblings Prince George, seven, and Princess Charlotte, five, usually spend their birthdays in the countryside but this year could be different.
While Louis is yet to start school, George and Charlotte are both pupils at Thomas’s Battersea.
The private primary school is a short drive from Kensington Palace where the Cambridge family are based during term time.
Kensington Palace is also Kate and William’s administrative base and traditionally is where they conduct royal duties from.
However, this changed dramatically during the coronavirus pandemic.

Kate and William were gifted the royal residence of Anmer Hall by the Queen following their wedding in 2011.
Anmer Hall is in Norfolk, a short drive from the Queen’s Sandringham Estate.
The gorgeous stately home is said to be the Duchess’s favourite spot and is where the Cambridge family have spent the best part of the pandemic.
They headed back to the capital ahead of schools reopening in March and are understood to have been based there ever since.

As Louis’ birthday falls on a Friday this year, plans for a countryside celebration may be off the cards.
George and Charlotte returned to school following the Easter holidays on Tuesday and will have class on Louis’ birthday.
Although spending the whole day in Norfolk on Friday may be a write-off, the Cambridges could travel there for the weekend now COVID-19 restrictions have been relaxed.
Kate’s mother, Carole Middleton, is a whizz when it comes to children’s parties and has her own party business Party Pieces.
Carole often posts social-distanced party ideas on the Party Pieces Instagram page and could have something special lined up to mark Louis birthday.
Louis will turn three at what has been a sad time for the Royal Family following Prince Philip’s death on April 9.
George, Charlotte and Louis were unable to attend their great-grandfather’s funeral due to the strict 30-person limit on numbers.
Ahead of the service, one royal insider claimed to know the heartbreaking way in which William broke the Duke’s death to his children.

The source told US Weekly: "William told George, Charlotte and Louis that Prince Philip has 'gone to heaven' and 'is an angel now'.
The insider added: "They're still so young."
Louis is fifth in line to the throne and his older brother George will be king after Prince William.
