Prince Louis shares a birthday week with his great grandmother Queen Elizabeth II who turned 94 on April 21. Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William’s youngest son will be two on April 23 and while the milestone will go by quietly amid lockdown, mum Kate will have at least one special treat in store.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are spending lockdown in Norfolk with their three children, Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince Louis, one.
The royal youngsters will be enjoying the run of the gorgeous gardens at their country home Anmer Hall and may mark Louis’s birthday with a special afternoon tea outside.
Lockdown measures mean a proper birthday party won’t be possible this year but little Louis will still get to enjoy this homemade sweet treat.
Kate has previously revealed she loves to bake and takes huge pleasure in preparing her children’s birthday cakes every year.

Speaking to TV chef Mary Berry for a special BBC programme at Christmas, Kate revealed: “I love making the cake
“It’s become a bit of a tradition that I sort of stay up until midnight with ridiculous amounts of cake mix and icing, I make far too much, but I love it.”
So while Louis may have to wait another year for a proper party he will at least get to enjoy a birthday cake.
How are Prince George, Charlotte and Louis spending lockdown?
Last week Kate and William shared some sweet details about how they were spending lockdown during a TV interview with the BBC.
Speaking to BBC reporter Tina Daheley via video link Kate revealed she was keeping the children to a strict schedule and hadn’t let them know it was the Easter holidays.
The Duchess said: “It’s been ups and downs, like a lot of families self-isolating.
“George is much older than Louis is and things but they are aware, I’m always surprised.
“And although you don’t want to scare them and make it too overwhelming.”

“I think it is appropriate to acknowledge it in the simple ways and age-appropriate ways.”
Kate added: “Don’t tell the children, we’ve actually kept it going through the holidays.
“I feel very mean! (laughs). The children have got such stamina I don’t know how.
“Honestly, you get to the end of the day and you write down the list of all the things that you’ve done in that day.”
The Duchess added: “So you pitch a tent take the tent down again, cook, bake. You get to the end of the day – they have had a lovely time – but it is amazing how much you can cram into one day that’s for sure.”
Kate will be busy making cakes in the coming weeks as Princess Charlotte has a birthday coming up two.
Charlotte will be five on May 2 and will no doubt be treated to a special birthday cake too.
Last month she and Prince William shared an adorable clip of their three little ones clapping for the NHS from the garden at Anmer Hall.
