Kate Middleton Spoke for Every Mom with This Off-the-Cuff Comment to the Archbishop
Prince Louis' record of being a great sleeper continues!
The royal baby slept through his entire, much-anticipated entrance for the royal christening on Monday. He was even napping peacefully in the arms of his mother, Kate Middleton, when she greeted Archbishop Justin Welby, who led the ceremony. When the archbishop pointed out the sleeping prince, Princess Kate responded, “Let’s hope he stays like this!”
Princess Kate often makes relatable, candid comments about parenthood. While on maternity leave, she mentioned how much she loves simple moments with her kids, and at an event in 2017 for her Heads Together campaign, she said being a mother is both “rewarding” and “a huge challenge.”
Monday’s ceremony marked the first time Kate, her three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, and her husband, Prince William, have made a public appearance as a family of five.

Kate honored the occasion by wearing an Alexander McQueen dress, the same designer she wore for her older children’s christenings and her own wedding.
